I adore embroidered fabrics, and they’re becoming quite fashionable as an interior design option, with some exquisite new choices like the ones above. The layers of fabric on linen or cotton create an intricately textured look, adding supple dimension as well as an almost narrative, storybook charm. The embroidered colors seem to come alive, standing out against the neutral backgrounds. I use them for window treatments, or, in the case of one current client, as a tapestry-like hanging. After all, they are wonderfully evocative artwork, deserving to be displayed with no other purpose than to amuse and delight.
