Traditional Floral Prints are Making a Comeback

by Lisa Stewart 16 Jun 2018

Floral motifs are always classic and timeless.


The left photo of Nancy Pyne by Jonathan Becker was featured in Town and Country Magazine in 1987. The right photo by Melanie Acevedo shows Nancy Pyne at her current home.  

The fetching floral chintz pattern on the left was famously used by distinguished designer Albert Hadley for his client, legendary socialite tastemaker Nancy Pyne in the 1960’s. In 2010 with the help of Hadley and Pyne, Schumacher reintroduced the beautiful floral print on the right. Available as a fabric and a wallcovering, this popular pattern named Pyne Hollyhock is gracing furniture, windows and walls once again. 

Thinking of adding this time-honored elegant look to your home? It’s available in quintessential color collections that will revive any décor, especially when paired with one of the latest contemporary geometric prints in the same colorway.
