One of the most striking photos in the House & Garden article on Aerin Lauder's Long Island home is that of the master bedroom- the fabric on the walls and the bedding is just "devine". Michael Devine, that is.
Devine is the creative mind behind his eponymous line of fabrics. What makes the line so striking is that the fabric is hand blocked, which emphasizes the hand stenciled, loving hands look of the designs. But there is nothing homespun about these fabrics- they are truly sophisticated and to me, a bit reminiscent of the work of the late, great Alan Campbell. Others must agree as Devine's line has been accepted into the prestigious Mason et Objet Editeurs show in Paris in early 2008.
And lest you think Devine only devotes his attention to fabrics, he also has an amazing looking shop in Kinderhook, NY (a shop that I hope to someday visit in person). If you're not in the market for fabric, definitely visit his online shop which carries all sorts of stylish home accessories including ice buckets, wastebaskets, and other wares which incorporate Devine's divine fabric.
Some of Devine's charming prints
"Garden Folly" in lemon (which is, big surprise, one of my favorite Devine prints!)
"Bagatelle" in Sea
"Fretwork" in Scarlet
