From the minute I saw these new fabrics and wallpaper panels from Designer's Guild's Zepherine Collection at the D and D Building's Osborne and Little last spring, reminiscent of stage sets and English country manors, I was taken by their old world, British brooding yet charming impact.

Ornamental Garden, a fabric panel of gigantic urns against a glamorous dark grey background is like nothing else out there. Yes, more is more.

The design is also available in a wallpaper, the hyper realistic flowers and urns set against a background with classic molding. It is fantastic in that Cecil Beaton's English country house way.

The drop repeat of flower filled urns in Rugosa has an unparalleled wow factor to it.

The pastiche collage effect of this Orangerie fabric makes me love it. I could envision it on a chair, in pillows or covering every surface in a small guest bedroom to create an indoor garden.

Palmieri, a grisaille drawing of flower and frond filled classical urns against a bright pop of color is pretty eye catching.
