Highly personal and imaginative, Lulu de Kwiatkowski's fabrics and wallpapers are essentially modern and clean-lined. Often her designs are inspired by centuries-old architecture and ornament, but her look is always youthful. So I'm continually fascinated to see her prints used successfully -- and very frequently -- in more traditional interiors. Maybe one phenomenon of Lulu's fabric line is its versatility.
Throughout the week I'll show examples of Lulu DK's designs used in settings very different from her own home.
Above, Kelly Crago Hansen chose Lulu DK's "Paradiso," a hand-print on linen/cotton featuring birds and fish, for the cabana curtains and table linens in her 2006 vignette seen at Dining By Design, Atlanta. Hansen told me she was inspired by Royal island getaways done-up by famed British designer Oliver Messel.
