The Prince of Chintz

Mario Buatta
Fifty Years of American Interior Decoration

Mario Buatta, the "Prince of Chintz," has a newly 
released tome of his fifty years of work; as depicted above. The greater body of his creations has been in the English country manner, but the book shows that he has accomplished many forms of design.

The room above shows Buatta's talent for the
 monochrome room, always punched with 
a surprise of color and whimsy.

The bedroom above marries chintz, his signature fabric, with checks and solids. The result is a "room of her own." 

The book is a great gift for anyone who enjoys the 'eye candy' that his designs never cease to provide.

For more examples of chintz, see my 'Hints of Chintz' board on Pinterest.

Happy Chintz to all!
