Legendary British designer Celia Birtwell is having a second moment (her first was as a clothing designer in the swinging sixties outfitting the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and Twiggy) as a fabric and textile designer; she has operated an interior design showroom in Notting Hill since the eighties. Her Beasties and Little Animals fabric and wallpaper has us in raptures. Available at Suzan Fellman Showroom in Los Angeles and Lucy Rose in Chicago. The fabric is also available at UK website Fabrics and Papers for £50 a meter; the wallpaper is £55 per roll. View her entire line at Celia Birtwell, where you can also buy the fabric directly (don’t miss the Sale Bin, where Beasties 100 percent cotton fabric in pink can currently be found for £24 a meter).
