Muriel Brandolini design,"gutsy and full of energy!"

While reading the New York Times I came across an article"Beguile with Textiles " by Sara Ruffin Costello. It was about Muriel Brandolini and her wonderful hand blocked fabrics and I was instantly interested! I had seen her fabrics at Holland & Sherry, but really did not know alot about Muriel the designer.  After some research I found Muriel Brandolini's exceptional designing style really made me 'Happy"! Her rooms are as diverse as the designer  herself. Muriel is half /Vietnamese and French/Venezuelan. She is very passionate and full of energy and this shows throughout her work. She finds inspiration from art, sculpture and world travels. Heavily influenced by Asian and European culture she has put out and amazing hand blocked fabric line available through-Holland & Sherry. I find that this line of fabrics definitely lends itself to all interiors. There is something for everyone from ethnic to modern with beautiful,  fun color choices.  Not to mention that she has a fabulous interior design book "The World of Muriel Brandolini"available at Amazon. This is just what I needed to jump start my Monday. Enjoy!
