Thank goodness for spring! It’s felt like a particularly cold winter here in London and I am eagerly anticipating the warmer days ahead. Perhaps that’s why I chose this beautiful, tropical inspired fabric by Nobilis for our spring window this year! Today I’m delighted to share a peek at the new spring window at our UK showroom – with its contemporary colour pallet of citron, green, black and white it has a fresh, outdoor feel and offers plenty of inspiration for those looking to bring touch of outdoor living to their homes or conservatories.
The fabric pictured above is 100% linen and the intricate design featuring tropical fruit and foliage is entirely embroidered. Aside from the striking black striped leaves it was the fantastic texture of the pineapples that first caught my eye – they add so much depth to the fabric and the beautiful soft teal colour adds an unexpected twist. The trailing pattern makes a dramatic curtain but would work equally well as fabric for soft furnishings, creating accent pieces like scatter cushions.
Sitting pride of place in the window is this fabulous white wicker peacock chair which I found whilst out antiques hunting. It’s a wonderful statement piece for a large conservatory and the perfect place to display cushions like these contemporary hummingbird and tattoo inspired designs. In the background you can just glimpse our hurricane vases which are exclusive to Jenny Blanc and made from marine grade stainless steel – they’re very popular in the tropics but equally useful here in the UK to protect outdoor candles from rough winds or unruly pets!
Adding some new cushions is one of the quickest and easiest ways to refresh a space. The ones I have chosen for our spring window feature a wonderful range of textures and patterns, all united by a harmonious colour pallet of green and citron.
I hope you find our spring window inspiring – we have had so many lovely comments already, it looks like prints and patterns with a tropical twist are going to be popular for the foreseeable future!
