Design Crush: Décors Barbares

Since moving to Europe two years ago and traveling to Morocco, Turkey, India, and Japan (still pinching myself), my love of textiles has soared to new heights. We’re returning to Istanbul for my birthday in late March and I can’t wait to fill my luggage with more fabrics. One of my favorite textile designers is Nathalie Farman-Farma of Décors Barbares (previously Tissus Tartares). Nathalie was born in California, raised in France, attended high school and college in the U.S., and now calls London home. Her dreamy Chelsea townhouse has been widely published in magazines and was included in the gorgeous book, Haute Bohemians. The interior reflects the designer’s love of Persian, Central Asian, and Russian folk traditions and her instagram account is one of my favorites to follow. Someday, I hope to incorporate Décors Barbares fabrics (all meticulously screenprinted in France) into my home. Below, explore more of Nathalie’s lovely textile designs. READ POST

John Derian Wallpaper + Fabrics

Artist and shop owner extraordinaire John Derian has just unveiled his collaboration with Designers Guild and I want to makeover our apartment from floor to ceiling. The collection includes five wallpapers and eleven fabrics in multiple colorways, all inspired by Derian’s trademark vintage aesthetic. There is even an assortment of throw pillows included (I’m all about the seashells). Did you hear that Derian is opening a new West Village shop (his third in New York) in March?! I’m long overdue for a trip to the Big Apple. Below, explore more of the John Derian for Designers Guild collection. READ POST
