Who else has fallen hopelessly in love with The Crown, Netflix’s $100 million production about the life of Queen Elizabeth? I have always been drawn to the British sensibility and passion for chintz when it comes to interior design, and I simply cannot get enough of the of The Crown’s fabulous sets. Fortunately, Joni at Cote de Texas loves them too, and she has written thorough analyses, which you can enjoy here, here, and here.
Back to British style… have you read the book On the Fringe: A Life in Decorating by Imogen Taylor yet? Imogen joined interior design firm Colefax and Fowler in 1949 and when John Fowler (known as the Prince of Decorators) retired in 1971, he passed on to her all his clients. Imogen, the Queen of Chintz, combines style bible with social memoir. I have already read it three times… it is that good!
