When I hear, “you’re going to love this new book” my heart races for a few seconds. A new wallcovering book always carries the hope of great expectations. The Silhouettes book is a winner in every category!
Julia, Hirshfield’s Design Studio, offers up this book report:
This book is fresh, cheerful, and has a good mix of colors and patterns. Sometimes a manufacturer has a fantastic pattern, but has it colored wrong or vice versa. Not this book.
The patterns are versatile and not tied to a particular style; they are suitable for contemporary, traditional, or transitional spaces. The designs are very current and on-trend: geometric, chinoiserie, butterflies, birds, damask variation, trellis, and faux bois.
The look, and even feel, of the papers are similar to the Farrow & Ball block printing process. Totally old-school, totally very expensive looking. Farrow & Ball can cost in the upwards of $200+ per single roll, the Silhouettes papers retail for $48.99-$53.99 per single roll. Plus, it is made in America.
We all love the book here at Hirshfield’s. Do you have a favorite pattern? Which room would you use it in?
Always call your local Hirshfield’s store and verify they carry a particular book, or that the book is not checked out, before you make a special trip.
