Our eye is on Aidan Gray's collaboration with The Antiques Diva, Toma Clark Haines, whose collection blends antique and modern aesthetics. Aiden Gray, 1436 Slocum St., Rebecca Sherman F rom his East Sussex studio overlooking the English Channel, artist Richard Smith creates designs for his beguiling Madeaux wallpapers and fabrics. If that view somehow doesn't inspire, he also looks to classic English interiors and historic textiles to jump-start ideas. He paints his designs in watercolors on paper first, then reproduces and hand-prints them onto linen and paper. Madeaux's newest collection includes fabrics inspired by 19th-century Italian damasks; a stripe taken from ikat linings of Uzbekistan robes; and a bamboo- trellis and rose-arbor pattern ignited after Smith saw a photo of Cecil Beaton in his winter garden. Fabrics have matching wallpapers, including some with metallic inks. George Cameron Nash has been following Smith's work for 10 years, ever since the artist gifted him with a lovely small watercolor painting of a stone doorway through a garden. At the time, Smith was designing for other fabric houses in London. "I told him his painterly brush style should be put to use in his own fabric collection," Nash says. The rest, as they say, is history. Madeaux fabrics and wallpapers, to the trade at George Cameron Nash, Dallas Design Center, Rebecca Sherman POSH PAPERS Aidan Gray Mark D.
