Destiny – perhaps Paule Marrot was destined to be an artist.  At just 14 years of age she attended L’ecole Des Arts Decoratifs. She was painter, a textile designer, an engraver, and a  teacher.  She was a favorite of Jaqueline Kennedy, who used her textiles to design a room in the White House.  Two dimensional  in nature – at first glance, they may appear to be simple, but they are in fact quite sophisticated.

They are cheery and whimsical.  They are a walk through a European garden in summer.  They are in full bloom, when you are in need of a smile.  Drawing inspiration from nature, and the ocean, Paule produced over 320 textile designs during her career.  Collaborated with Renault and sold one of her fabric designs to renowned fashion designer, Paul Poiret.

Today her prints can be purchased from Natural Curiosities, and fabric from Brunschwig  Fils.  I adore them, and would love to have them in one of my homes, and I wouldn’t ever sell it.
