Linen has always been associated with luxury. In times past only the rich could afford to travel to far off lands where soaring temperatures put a crinkle in their linen garments while they collected foreign art. This inspiration of casual chic has found its way into home décor with great appeal the last few years allowing linen to take center stage with it’s organic and “of the earth” vibe. I recently had the privilege of working with Deb Berard from Berard Design Group. She captured the serenity of this room perfectly. The draperies were a lightweight linen that we lined for privacy while still allowing the light to play with the fabric. The room was evoked an invitation to come for dinner and stay awhile!
