'SISTER'

I am sure you are all familiar with Sister Parish, the late great New York interior decorator and partner at Parish-Hadley Design. Sister's cozy, eclectic style was created using lots of colour, quirky patterns and painted furniture - she created rooms that were classic and timeless, whimsical and free-spirited - she always nailed that quintessential english look! Her society clients included the Kennedys, Annette de la Renta and she also partnered with Nancy Lancaster on American projects.

Here are a few of my favorite Sister Parish rooms.

Sister's legacy is continued through her family who founded Sister Parish Design in 2000 re-printing Sister's favorite fabrics and wallpapers. They have also expanded to offer pottery, dog accessories, totes and custom pillows.

Here are some of my favorite fabrics from the collection:

"Albert" in blue

How fabulous does it look on these x-benches!

'Burmese' - available in lots of fun colorways

'Campbell' in yellow

'Campbell' - Tete de Negre on a dining chair

'Eliza' - green 

'Kismet' - gold

Kismet 'gold' used on an antique cane chair - love this!!

Here are some accessories from SPD that I have had my eye on forever!
