Veere Grenney for Schumacher
London-based designer Veere Grenney recently visited Atlanta to introduce his second collection for Schumacher. While I knew that he was immensely talented (I've long been an admirer of his work), I was delighted to discover that he is immensely charming as well.
Grenney's latest collection of linen fabrics and wallcoverings comes in such a pleasing color palette: soft shades of sage, straw, and lilac, for example, joined by more robust hues of burnt orange, berber brown, and peacock blue. But, hands down, my favorite color in the collection is Temple Pink, which has to be the most perfect shade of pink. Not too sweet nor feminine, this mature version of pink also graces the drawing room walls of Grenney's eighteenth-century, Palladian-style temple folly, which has garnered accolades far and wide because of its architecture, its decor, and those splendid Temple Pink drawing room walls.
Equally as enticing are the collection's sophisticated prints. In a world where screaming for attention has become the norm, it's refreshing to see a collection of small-scaled prints that are subtle yet striking. But, should you wish to make a bold statement, you can do so thanks to the fact that some of the prints, such as Belvedere and Kiosk, are available in coordinating fabrics and wallcoverings.
To see the entire range of this collection, please visit the Schumacher website. And the next time you're in a Schumacher showroom, make sure to peruse the collection in person. I think you'll be as impressed with it as I am.
