Desperately Seeking Suzani.

I can’t stop thinking about that gorgeous Donghia Suzani print that Rita St. Clair used in the Family Room at the WDC. In my opinion, this is a trend is not going away anytime soon. I think it’s a great fabric to put in my guest bedroom (when I can acquire the funds to redo it.)

I love, love, love the bold colors and abstract designs in these prints. Are any of you with me? If you choose to Go Suzani this fall, here are the pillows that made it onto Kiki’s List:
