Born in Rome, designer Alessandra Branca is known for her fresh take on the classics, and her debut fabric line for Schumacher lives up to her pitch-perfect take on timeless design. With its unexpected color combinations, the Elizabeth pattern is definitely not your grandmother’s chintz, but it could be!
Decorating tip: This vibrant, youthful chintz plays well with modern decor. Fabricate throw pillows for either a clean-lined sofa or armchair.
