The timeless appeal of the 'classics' owes its origins to the creation of John Fowler's inimitable style. From the day he opened up his shop in Chelsea in 1934, it was certain that his highly original approach to interiors was to be characterised by a singular lightness of touch. It was the beginning of Fowler's defining country house 'look', influenced by his passion for nature & love of collecting textiles.
The enduring beauty of these designs, exclusive to Colefax & Fowler, lies in the draughtmanship of the exquisitely drawn patterns, the quality of printing and Colefax's unique colour pallette; often offbeat, but always sophisticated, with shades of crushed raspberry, pale greens or faded greyish-blues. The resulting colours are subtle & easy to live with - ideal for contemporary interiors as well as more classical homes.
