Question

Photo Douglas Friedman, Bazaar March 2008

I have yet been able to get my hands on the March issue of Bazaar (US edition) over here in the UK. I am dying to know the name of the Scalamandré fabric shown on the chairs in Tinsley Mortimer's apartment.

None other than Mrs.Blandings posted about this several weeks ago, a February post. Fabric is Clarence House, Nouveau Bizarre. She points out that this pillow was made using a header sample as the gromet is still intact. (you know the header is supposed to be returned) Take a look at Mrs. Blandings clever post.

Thank Patricia! I missed that blog post. I love the pillow, but I'm dying to know the floral fabric on the chair!

More coffee, oh, silly me, in my haste, I thought it was the pillow fabric you were after, the chair fabric certainly looks like Scalamandre to me?

It's afternoon and I am still drinking coffee! ;-)

Just so happens that I have a memo of the chair fabric. It is Scalamandre "China Rose". The no. for the pattern in lime green and pink is 164929-004. Gorgeous! Hope this helps.

Actually there was an excellent article, published in the September 2005 edition of Traditional Home, which featured the Donna May, textile designer for Scalamandre. The article pictures "China Rose" in green and pink and "Wine Growers".

Better yet - could someone please tell me who did the decorating??? The article says that Tinsley is from Charlottesville, VA and that he mother is a decorator. The press is listed on the Charlotte Moss website - does Tinsley Mortimer's mother work for Charlotte Moss??? Is Charlotte Tinsley's mother???

No CM isn't her mother. Her mother-in-law (I believe) is Senga Mortimer, who is an editor at House Beautiful.
