Pembroke House Designs, Ltd.

It’s always a pleasure to see my fabrics after they have been installed. When the talented designer Alison G. McCall of Pembroke House Designs, Ltd. sent me these photos of her family house in Florida I had to post them. She and her siblings inherited the family home from their mother. The house was designed by legendary architect Wallace Neff, known as the master of the Californian style that he created in Southern California during the first half of the 20th century. Its the only house of his outside of California.

Fretwork in string was used for the six sets of French doors in the living room. I really love the red and cream color palette and the vaulted ceiling.
