I’m sure I’m not alone in the way that I reacted to the stunning Maine summer home of John Fondas and John Knott in this month’s issue of House Beautiful. Sure, the furnishings are mostly traditional but this house is no snoozefest. And it’s all thanks to the breathtaking wallpaper and fabrics from Knott’s firm, Quadrille.

I’ll admit, I’m not very well versed on interior textiles but as I did a little research clicking through Quadrille’s website, I saw many an “old friend”: rooms that I had torn out of magazines and pinned for years. I just kept saying to myself, “That’s a Quadrille fabric?” and “Oh! That one, too?”. There are loads of options, all in beautiful colorways. Let’s take a look at some of my favorites.

The website doesn’t show any examples of this beauty in action but wouldn’t it be divine on a chair? Or sofa? Or headboard? Or anything?
Alas, these beauties are to the trade only. Contact your local interior designer for assistance. (And your sugar daddy!)
