Presents and Past
Above, vintage Russian malachite box followed by Tony Duquette's signature malachite printed tablecloth as seen in the new book, Tony Duquette, published by Abrams, 2007. Below, for a holiday card, Domino selected Colefax and Fowler's "Jubilee Rose."
This week I received some lovely gifts and cards with direct connections to past designs and current trends. So I thought I'd quickly share a few pairings. Both the malachite and floral cotton have been around forever, but peaked in fashion at various points during the 20th century. (Think 1980s, for one.)
It will be fun to see if these earthy-yet-refined looks, and others such as woodgrain, stay strong through the end of this decade. (Hope everyone is having a great day. Stay warm!)
