My sister Brook is getting married next summer. Justin, her fiancé, has a house that she’ll be moving into. Only problem, the place is rumored to be lacking any sort of (ahem) style. (Sorry Justin!!! But the quintessential bachelor pad black leather sofas aren’t exactly claiming the cover of Elle Décor!) No fear, big sister is here. Or at least I have been trying to help Brook come up with design plans from across the country!
One thing we both love are Suzani style textiles. These embroidered fabrics with medallion patterns are as rich in color as they are in history. The technique originated in Central Asia and is characterized by its buttonhole stitches. The oldest remaining examples are from the 18th Century, but the style is probably much older. Brook is an artist and she is looking for a creative, fun space that isn’t too feminine. I feel like introducing some Suzani will do just the trick!
