A Life in Fabric is a celebration of the unique heritage brand - Cabbages & Roses
The British heritage brand, Cabbages & Roses was founded in 2000 by Christina Strutt and Bridgitte Buchannan, and for the past 21 years Christina has been dressing both homes and their owners in her trademark faded floral and barely-there striped cottons and linens. A Life in Fabric celebrates every aspect of this very unique Cabbages & Roses lifestyle.
Divided into color-themed chapters, from Charcoal Whites to Raspberry Pinks, Hues of Blue to Berry Goodness and Lilac Loveliness, Strutt takes you on a tour through the fabric-filled homes (and gardens) she has adorned with her muted palette. Be inspired by her endless ways to use fabric and vintage finds in the home, from old quilts and throws in the bedroom, to faded floral curtains, pillows and sofas in the living areas, napkins and tablecloths in the kitchen, and fabric draped canopies and deckchairs in the garden.
Whatever the room or style of architecture, Christina’s relaxed philosophy and her love of the beauty of imperfection create timeless, accessible, and relaxing interiors that are perfect for today’s living.
