I've selected three of my favorite fabrics from Schumacher and they are Classics. Reminiscent of handmade lace and an embroidery-think Sybil Connolly decorating in Legacy Style, and a wool satin in a pale lavender that would have been right at home in a Rose Cumming designed room.
Schumacher takes a look at the women of How They Decorated and how to "Get The Look" with their Fabrics. The piece looks at Pauline de Rothschild's Mouton Library, and her workroom in Paris, along with the Baroness- the bedroom of Bunny Mellon's Antigua villa and offers selections from their extensive line of classic and modern collections.
House Beautiful's May issue gives a Master Class from How They Decorated rooms with quotes.
