Clarence House Dragon Empress


This absolutely scrumptious fabric I won last night on eBay is none other than Clarence House Dragon Empress. You may recall the sofa below in Dragon Empress from Domino's cover. This is Drew Barrymore's office that was designed by Ruthie Sommers. I have a yard in the blue colorway. Enough for a pillow, a stool, or a chair seat. I'm sure when I get it home it will speak to me and tell me where it wants to go. Stay tuned for this fun little project with this ultra luxe Chinoiserie fabric. Finding a snippet of very high end fabric is a great way to elevate your home without the cost of multiple yardage. Be on the hunt.





And from the home of Little Augury. She is a self-proclaimed Dragon Empress addict and has a lovely blog.

I love Clarence House fabrics
have used them many times and love this print. The last post was gorgeous. I just can't live with all that Blue.
My house on Palm Island had that
Royal blue Draperies in the dinning room Bay window. The day we closed on the house I ripped down the draperies.It affects me something awful. I like blue dishes. Yvonne

I thought I saw LA's Dragon Empress dragging itself here for a chin-dropping lineup. It's nice to see fabric love shared around the globe. You must be an EBAY dragon master.
