Get Outdoors! This Summer in Style…

We’ve all been waiting for Summer to finally arrive in the UK and now it has, we have the perfect solutions for keeping your garden looking as stylish as possible with Missoni!

Unfortunately not all of us have the backdrop of the sea like this, but luckily for us we can still decorate our back gardens like we have!
Using the new Summer Collection from Missoni, you see the use of stripes and zigzags coming back in with the bold colours making your
outdoor area more summery than you’ve ever seen before.

Along with these quirky and innovative ideas, make the most out of your garden and get the ultimate sun lounger!

Missoni don’t just supply fabrics either; take a look at their Summer 2015 clothing line!

Match this with your outdoor home accessories and you have the perfect all-rounder look and location for your summer at home!
So much so, that you’ll think you are living just by the sea!

Missoni is available at Kettle Design, pop into our showroom to take a look!

Interior Design Goes Bridal!

It’s around Spring that we start to notice the worlds of interior design and fashion design over-lapping as trends cross back and forth. Designers are enthusing about fabrics that we like to describe as ‘bridal’ and below we’ve found some truly romantic examples:-

The smoky embroidered charm of a gently puckered silk that is reminiscent of a Victorian corset and train, right the way up to the striking ivory silks that wouldn’t look out of place on a Vera Wang!

If you’re tying the knot over the coming weeks remember that the love affair with our home can be a long and lovely thing to celebrate too.

The Joy of Jouy

18th Century French Toile de Jouy fabric is undergoing a 21st century spin with many fabric houses, the bold colour palettes reviving the original spirit of these magnificent fabrics making them anything but what your granny would choose.

                                   

 Timorous Beasties in Glasgow pioneered the ‘urban-chic’ toile look perfectly and a decade later other companies are following this exciting trend.
