The carnation, the flower of love, is a personal favorite of designer Charlotte Moss. The Lucie pattern is inspired by an early 20th-century cotton dress from Charlotte’s own textile collection.
Decorating tip: This sweet floral is smaller in scale and less overwhelming than many other chintzes. Try it as a bed skirt in a girl’s room.
