The New York Times called Louise de Vilmorin’s Salon Bleu, “one of the high-water marks of 20th-century decoration.” The most copied aspect of this room is the large amounts of Brunschwig & Fils blue Verrières fabric which designer Henri Samuel used on all the chairs, sofa and curtains. The Peak of Chic blog considers Verrières “one of the design world’s great prints,” and Nadine de Rothschild, French author and actress, thought this fabric made “all the women look lovelier because it radiates a peaceful and serene atmosphere.”
