Last month, I found the above image on this design crisis post. This silk wall covering is in the home of Hutton Wilkinson shown in Harper's Bazaar. It was one of those moments that made me stop and 'Gasp!'
The design is very similar to the window curtains my Mother used to have in our childhood home back in New Zealand. The curtains were gifted to my Mother from Indian neighbours who were moving. Immediately my Mother washed them and put them up as soon as they were dried and ironed. Without fail, visitors always commented about her 'peach bird curtains'. When we migrated to Australia, my Mother lamented the fact that she had to leave those curtains behind. They were quite heavy and our baggage was mostly clothes and mind-boggling to me, kitchen equipment.
