It’s sometimes difficult to integrate what I consider such “warm weather” cottons and summery fabrics into interiors in colder climates. You must use these pieces judiciously of course, as an overload tends to look somehow misplaced with bare trees and gray skies outside the windows…
Lee Jofa’s new Blithfield line from England addresses this issue and hits the target. I get to pair colorful graphic prints and florals with flax-ish linen and other natural backgrounds. This means I get to have my cake and eat it too!
You aren’t limited to any palette—you can create your own. So, for those of us who love that look, but don’t live in LA or Florida—we can get the look in a way that fits into our own climate and surroundings. Imagine these prints layered on a cotton herringbone upholstered sofa or a beige linen velvet one. They are just as at home in either setting. Brilliant!
