A collection created with natural rhythms and plenty of detail. Natural Beauty has been inspired by Louise’s recent move to East Anglia, England.
Field & Sky is a celebration of nature through the medium of watercolor. By using fluid brush strokes and expressive colors, Yao Cheng captures the emotional beauty of landscapes, blooms, and skies.
We teamed up with Maven Patterns – their retro/modern looks are well suited to the pretty prints on our new cotton sateen – a versatile fabric for styles from tailored to flouncy.
Newcomers Briagell Perret, Lisa Baudry, and our popular designer Leah Duncan come together in this unique array of laminate prints. Easy to clean laminates are great for aprons, cosmetic pouches, rain coats, and more.
This collection illustrates a beautiful early morning walk in the woods, when the newly damp air is greeted by waves of dancing mushroom blooms and graceful garden snails. The collection was named after the small wonders under the timber trees.
‘Whitehaven’ tells a story of an English summer with its vast skies, pretty meadows and gentle flowers. Inspired by memories of long summer holidays as a child, each pattern is named after a place in England that has a particular meaning for me and evokes a special memory. The colour palette is bring yet soft, giving a feeling of warmth and sunsine.
“It all started when I bought Alphild’s house on Elliot Avenue. Meeting Alphild, with her amazing black beehive, dramatic taste in wallpaper, and love of costume jewelry was an unforgettable start to the many happy years I spent living on Elliot Avenue. Each pattern in this collection is named for one of the colorful characters who helped make this street home.
There’s Eyja, the grey cat from Iceland, Frankie with myriad rescue dogs on parade, Rianne and her Swedish décor paired with a kitchen ceiling of Italian glass, Helly the chocolate lab next door, Mia who loved walking through our garden, Claire the designer, and Alena who longed for California…all of these and many more stories are woven into the fabric of Elliot Avenue. I hope you enjoy your stay as much as I did!” – Kirsten Sevig
Bohemian Garden by Clairice Gifford combines lush florals, textured geometrics, and a hint of the boho sixties to create an eclectic, nature-inspired collection. Rich colors, blooming flora, and a graphic vintage feel are sure to inspire!
Within the designs of “To Market, To Market”, a nostalgia filled story was woven about an everyday trip to the market. Emily Isabella playfully depicts the canopy of trees that covers your head as you journey along, carefully avoiding the buds that pop out of the sidewalk. The fruits and foliage acquired at the market are put in bowls and vases in your home, all while whispers of a childhood rhyme run through your head.
