A chance encounter with this English magazine is how it all began. So enamored were we with the beautiful dishes on the cover, that we hunted and searched until my sister finally found this sad and lonely sugar bowl, hairline crack and all...after that...CHINTZMANIA ensued!
Collecting lead to a semi-sorta-sickness...with no 12 step program available for chintz collectors, we were brought into the shabby/romantic/cottage fold. The light and airy decor style is what we in the CHINTZ world call a "Go-With": complimentary without competition...and we were hooked!
I read somewhere that plates should not be hung on walls...(Wink, wink, Cindy ;)... we beg to differ!
The neutral-fabulous colors of the cottage decor are the perfect foil for the colorful patterns of our chintz. But the light, peaceful elegance of this style are the perfect "Go-With" for any collection... or home.
