At the time of it’s discovery I was drowning in designer self-doubt, and frustration. I was working as an assistant to another designer in town, and everything we were doing -including the curtains- was big and overwrought or cold and modern. All the materials we were using were heavy, dark, expensive, & excessive. I felt completely lost & hopeless in a see of brocade and taffeta and bead trim.
Katrin’s book was a breath of fresh air for me.
Here was someone who designed curtains the way I thought they should look, out of simple, beautiful, charming, & fresh fabrics. And almost always with a whimsical twist somewhere in the design… Nothing stuffy or dark and too serious. Instead she offered curtain ideas that were light, and airy and real life ready….
Don’t you love the clean layers & repetition?
Wouldn’t that be the best bunk house ever?
Now that is what camp should look like!
