Retro Flowers: My first collection October 11, 2015 21:11
I really wanted this collection to reflect Hunkydory style; bright colour and a retro feel! The table lamps, cushions and lampshades ooze with nostalgia and burst with colour. The fabrics feature bold floral motifs in brilliant colours are inspired by my childhood in Scandinavia and my love of vintage design. All products are designed and made in England using a soft, textured hopsack fabric.
The collection features two key designs in complementary colours, each piece works fabulously on its own as a statement or together as a set. The Isobel Flowers design features cream flowers set against a vibrant orange red, teal blue or golden yellow background. The Martha Flowers design features a round floral motif in two colour ways; orange red and blue or teal blue and sunshine yellow against a cream background.
