I spent an hour in the home furnishings section of Liberty the other day. It's how I like to spend my very rare childfree time. You know, just looking.
I'm quite smitten with their new collection and now I'm trying to work out where I can fit in a few more florals;
So far this is what we've got going on around the place...
Above is the fabric that I've FINALLY made into blinds for our bedroom (full post coming soon I promise). It's by Kenzo Maison and is called Jungle (very confusing when you google it as Kenzo have a perfume called Jungle). I just love it, I love the colours and the beautiful botanical draftsmanship and the boldness. Which is lucky really as it's going to be the last thing I see when I go to sleep and the first thing I see in the morning.
In our very green sitting room (Farrow & Ball Green Smoke) - I might have to do another post - we have a very classic Morris pattern. We bought this William Morris Pinks & Roses fabric to make curtains for our old flat and by a stroke of luck the curtains were the perfect size for the windows here when we moved. My sister made us some cushion covers with the left over fabric, so we are all matchy-matchy.
This blind is made with a fabric called Misia by Manual Canovas and is also something we had in our old flat. It's not actually quite long enough for this window in our bathroom, but you know, there is no way I could get rid of this, and it's the right width which is good enough for me.
I'm waiting for somewhere where I can use Nankin by Manual Canovas... it's quite similar, quite grown up I think?
Of course Ikea are pretty good at a floral pattern too. I got these cushions for our outside chairs a couple of years ago, I like the little watering can motif going on there... when they are not being used outside they just hang out here by the back door.
It's very hard to photograph as it's totally internal, but our downstairs cloakroom is seriously flower power. We have this beautiful Varklockor wallpaper by Svensk Tenn which I had lusted after for ages. The reason it's in the downstairs loo is because the room is tiny and the wallpaper is expensive, so expensive that I've conveniently wiped its cost from my memory... otherwise I might give myself a heart attack every time I look at it. It's full on, but I never tire of it.
Finally there are the blinds in Coco's bedroom, the fabric is by a Swedish company called Spira and the design is called Haga. I first saw it in Skandium but then by the time I came to buy it they no longer stocked it so I bought it online from a company based in Oxford called Northlight Interiors.
So there you can see my slightly schizophrenic floral pattern love, from Morris to Scandi with some modern Ikea and a little French lux thrown in. I do envy people who can stick to white minimilist interiors...
