The 411 on Carolina Irving Textiles

After my post last week on Peter Dunham's shop Hollywood at Home, numerous readers emailed me with inquiries about how they could purchase Carolina Irving's beautiful hemp fabric. Angela of Carolina Irving Textiles told me that if you live in California, you can purchase it directly through Hollywood at Home. For those of you who reside in New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut, ordering is through John Rosselli's showroom. And for the rest of us, we can email Irving's office at .

Although their website is somewhat under construction, you can see the prints that are currently available. Angela was kind enough to send me these images below. There are also some soon to be released prints on linen that I hope to share with you in the near future!

"Andaluz" in Paprika

"Candia" in Delft

"Kandyli" in Sienna/Olive

"Palermo" in Apple

  1. Peak, would you happen to know if Carolina Irving is someone who once was a features editor at HG?
    Her point of view was always refreshing. And I recall an article about a grand apartment she lived in~grand in terms of size, not false grandeur~that had the most marvelous red-striped fabric teamed with brilliant yellow walls. Must look that up! It was inspiring and so too was her personality.

  2. Toby- Yes, I believe so. I know she's now an editor with Vogue Living. I vaguely remember that her home was featured in Vogue a few years back; it was also featured in WOI late last year. That's a great article!

  3. I love all of these examples!

  4. I rather like Candia in delft ... so terrifically naïve and charming ...

  5. Aesthete- That print is charming, and of course how can one go wrong with blue and white?!

    Hmm... so how expensive are these?

    I suppose if one has to ask how much these lovely fabrics cost, one probably can't afford them...

  7. Anon- You know, I actually don't know. But one thing I've learned is that sometimes you can be surprised at how affordable something is (and of course the opposite can happen too!).
