SPREADING THE JOY OF A PERFECT PRINT.
Coordinating walls and upholstery is a venerable tradition. Louis XIV did it by the acre at Versailles; French heiress and novelist Louise de Vilmorin, who wrote Madame
de…, famously did it in a blue floral to the drawing room of her château. This year fashion designers are giving their collections the same treatment. It’s a tightrope walk, though. Too much and it feels matchy, too little and an opportunity is lost. As Robert Rauschenberg said, “Having to be different is the same trap as having to be the same.”
