Harlequin - advertising images

How great are these advertising images.....

These are the shots from the latest Harlequin Collection called Kallianthi.

This is a collaboration with Clarissa Hulse who is a bright star in the British textile world, uncompromising in her passion to deliver the ultimate combination of colour, print and texture. Her name has become synonymous with beautiful and luxurious home accessories, wallpapers and fabrics. Kallianthi is a breathtaking collection of fabrics and wallpapers with a botanical theme which encompasses her trademark style and distinctive handwriting.

I haven't seen the collection in person yet, but my mouth is watering.....

Breakfast Nook

How cute is this breakfast nook. The the combination of art on the wall with the random antlers. The sofa fits perfectly in front of the traditional styled curtains, but it fun and fresh with the salmon pink colour flowing from the sofa on to the walls, in splashes of colour.

Latest Designers Guild

Got to see the latest Designers Guild collection last week. Here are some of the advertising photo's of the Amrapali Collection - inspired by a journey through India with exotic gardens, birds of paradise and Jacaranda trees. Shades of aqua, blue, turquoise mixed with splashes of magenta, chartreuse and cobalt are all represented in the colour palette.

Poppped into T&CS to see their latest product releases and snapped a couple of quick photo's of the styling, which is always wonderful. Love the grouping of the white flowers together, freesias, roses, tulips and lilies - very elegant and some great new products I can't wait to specify.....

Lewis and Wood

I love finding new fabric options. I was just introducted to Lewis and Wood - an small UK company producing fabrics and Wallpapers, largely manufactured in Britain.
The commitment to produce original products starts in their screen printing studio, where creative director, Magdalen Jebb collaborates with a variety of freelance designers, from different disciplines to encourage an original approach. They then work with weavers, dyers, printers and finishers to try new techniques. This isn’t always easy, but it does make the result a lot more interesting.

These three images caught my eye - love the colour combinations. More here.

I think I may have mentioned before, that I love ikat designs. Here are some images of soft ikat designs - a softer palette, makes the ikat design suitable for any classic interior. What until tomorrow for the wilder side.....

Pretty in Pink

Love the simplicity of a pink and white bedroom for a young lady. Great graphic toile wallpaper, teamed with crisp white bedding with soft pink detailing and geometic cushions......a little girls dream bedroom.

Absolutely Beautiful Things

The amazing Anna Spiro from Black and Spiro in Brisbane, has just released an amazing new online concept store called "Anna Spiro's Absolutely Beautiful Things" . The concept is that each season they will showcase a new vignette of items, custom made, vintage and things that sell at Black and Spiro. Anna's execution of the site is wonderful and unique and well worth a look.

American Design

Here is some work by American Designer - Eileen Kathryn Boyd, recently featured in the Hampton's Designer Showcase. Eileen's mantra is that "Color has the ability to change someone’s entire world, freeing them from all that is dull" and I have to agree. Eileen's use of colour in these interiors is subtle and harmonious. Its always good to see whats going on in the world.
