There is no shortage of clean, bright Palm Beach preppy fabrics and home furnishing accents today. Monogramming, awning stripes, nautical motifs such as the sea horse and coral, Greek keys and the great new Lily Pulitzer fabric collection through Lee Jofa are a la mode. Going hand in glove, I am seeing in soft home furnishings the classic, timeless buffalo plaid. But, it has a new attitude though. It is larger scaled and bolder, taking center stage. I am seeing the predictable color combos of red and white as well as black and white and they are dramatic. However, I am also seeing brights with white and they clean and modern. I’m liking them!
I love the black and white gingham – it looks so mid century modern!
