Pardon Me, but Are you wearing my wallpaper?

As I receive emails by the dozen everyday from stores-tempting me with the newest of the new in fashion. Occasionally I bite-but more often I LOOK. I adore fabrics and it is always intriguing to see how fashion and interior design merge -often on the runway.

I suppose Scarlet O'Hara of GONE WITH THE WIND infamy- was the first gal I knew that literally WORE her curtains. I always wondered who made that fabulous confection of green velvet. She pulled together her patterns and designed the frock, but I think Mammy did most of the sewing, or perhaps it was sister Sue Ellen.
Right now I see many prints that are the exact fabric I have used. I rarely repeat a fabric in my design work-But on occasion one comes along that is a brilliant "workhorse."
It GOES with everything: IMPERIAL TRELLIS by designer Kelly Werstler. I have use the wallpaper and the fabric. My favorite colorway is the Citrine and Ivory.
