Over the last few years we have witnessed a return to cozy and pretty interiors, as seen in many magazine spreads. We’ve also seen a resurgence of floral prints, or chintz as they are commonly referred to in the design world, and I love it. Some say chintz is back, but I doubt it ever really left. There are quite a few classic floral prints that designers return to time and time again, no matter the trends. Lee Jofa’s Althea for instance, always looks beautiful and fresh, Schumacher’s Pyne Hollyhoak is classic yet has an edgy, almost modern ?feel to it, and my all time favorite chintz, Bowood by Colefax & Fowler.?

Bowood?

Bowood is as fresh and pretty today as it was almost a century ago. The story is that John Fowler, the great British decorator, discovered a scrap of an old fabric while decorating at the famous Bowood House in Wiltshire. He loved it so much that he had it manufactured by his fabric house Colefax & Fowler. It has been in production since the 1930s and it remains one of the most recognizable and iconic fabrics in the interior design world. I would love to use it in our own home someday, as scalloped slipcovers on our dining chairs or even upholstery on some comfortable club chairs or sofas. That’s the thing about Bowood, the possibilities are endless. It looks good everywhere, as upholstery, window treatments or wall coverings. Here is a suite of gorgeous rooms that don the Bowood in a subtle or massive way.?

What do you think? Would you add a touch of Bowood in your home? It looks beautiful on its own, like in Justine Cushing’s home? but mixes really well with subtle geometric pattters, such as thin stripes or massive checks. It’s currently available in two color ways, Red/Blue and Green/Gray and I can’t decide which one I love most. Can you???

    I’ve always loved Bowood and plan to use it in my home at some point too, Eva. If I remember correctly there was a house where the designer used it in almost every room! My favored colorway is the green/gray.

    I also agree with you that classic florals and chintzes never went out of style, for me anyway. Many of the fabric houses use the same patterns with updated colors to freshen them for today’s homes. Just lovely!

    Hope you are settling in to your new home–maybe you’ll do a blog post on your place?? Would love to see it!

      Hello Diana!
      Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful comment. I think I know which home you’re referring to and I love it too. When something looks as good as Bowood does, it can carry the design from room to room.

      About our new home, I’d definitely like to blog about it at some point. We sold most of our furniture before our move because I wanted to start fresh. We just ordered a new sofa and bookshelves and I’m counting the days until they arrive. It’s going to take some time to make it pretty and cozy but I’m trying to enjoy the process and exercise patience. It’s not easy, though ??

        Well, good luck with it Eva–I know how stressful moving can be! I hope you will find time to blog–I so enjoy seeing “Cafe Design” in my mailbox!
