Verrieres

‘Nothing dates faster than a printed fabric- unless of course, it’s one of those timeless prints that defy shifts in style’ Marylin Bethany – Interiors: What Works (New York Magazine, 1987)

The iconic ‘Verriéres’ fabric has been in the Brunsching & Fils line since 1960 (Known in  Europe as ‘Batik’ – Le Manach/Pierre Frey)  On today’s blog post I’m sharing some fabulous rooms where this timeless chintz makes all the difference.

CLJ Home : a chic takeover

To mark the launch of its inaugural fabric collection, interior lifestyle brand CLJ Home has taken over Salvesen Graham’s showroom in the most beautiful way. Pretty fabrics with chic patterns, a soothing palette and carefully chosen accessories have created a fresh, timeless and fun space that brings the sunshine even on the cloudiest London day.

CLJ Home has its origins in South Africa where the CLJ Home founder – Charlotte Lawson Johnston – was born.  She has vivid memories of her mother creating beautiful memories on a shoestring. Charlotte studied at the New York School of Interior Design and then textiles at Central Saint Martins in London. After working for some of England’s leading interior designers, she then held an apprenticeship at a London based textile and wallpaper printing factory. It was here that she gained hands-on experience printing on the factory floor and where she would eventually go on to print her first collection for CLJ Home.

Georgia Macmillan – Collection III

Born in Australia and now based in Dubai, Georgia Macmillan designs fabrics that will instantly transport you to an endless summer. Georgia was another of my Instagram discoveries and I’m so excited to be featuring her new collection on today’s blog post.

The COLLECTION III napkins and tablecloths feature Georgia’s original watercolour art digitally printed on 100% French linen. Each of her collection is a year in the making – from the hundreds of draft watercolour artworks to sampling the prints to ultimately making it available for customers.

This new collection is inspired by Halcyon summer days surrounded by the fabled beauty of Capri and Positano – the unspoilt charm, overgrown vegetable plots, sun- bleached peeling stucco on grand villas, generous simple meals of Caprese Salads and Prawn linguine, and banks of brilliantly coloured bougainvillea, all of which overlook the deep blue water lapping into secluded coves…European summer holidaying at its best!
