What goes around, comes around.
French script — handwriting — was a popular home decor motif more than a decade ago. Now the French Laundry look has been revived as a romantic, fashion-forward trend.
As our lives are increasingly overtaken by technology and the luxury of receiving a handwritten letter — in cursive script, no less — is disappearing, we’re suddenly besotted by scripts and fonts.
Script-themed toile is fresh and fun, and the grain or feed sack style is charmingly vintage. Written words and phrases, postage cancellations and old-fashioned company logos and artwork are imprinted in linen, linen-look, burlap, linen burlap, hemp, ticking and cotton upholstery and drapery fabrics. You’ll also find furniture and home accents such as lampshades, pillows, trays, picture frames and more.
