Talk about history!
Featured in the June 2012 issue of Traditional Home Magazine is one of Rose Tarlow’s original cotton fabrics…Bloomsbury.
Page 24 shows the pattern in the Kiwi colorway, however, the fabric is also available in Merlot and Saffron. It has been a great success over the years, and really is the perfect summer pattern!
Renowned interior designer, Albert Hadley, who was known for his bold and creative eye, talks about this classic fabric.
Thomas Jayne from New York quoted the legendary designer on this equally historic pattern, stating “Albert Hadley once spoke to me about what makes a beautiful chintz. He said it must be well-drawn-like a work of art. It should have architecture-meaning the design is ordered and ideally a stripe or other geometric pattern. And the colors must be good! This print works because it represents these qualities well, and there is an almost gauzy softness, without being mushy, that makes it up-to date.” It couldn’t have been described any better!
