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!
Below you can see some images from Georgia Macmillan new Linen Showroom which features a range of designs from her three collections and has been created in association with Jotun Paints Arabia.
Williams Sonoma has partnered with Aerin Lauder to create an exclusive collection that reflects the tastemaker’s signature style. Inspired by her philosophy that living beautifully should be effortless. The collection showcases blue and white tableware, rattan trays and ice buckets, pretty cushions, woven furniture…Palm beach chic at its very best!
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure to visit Susan Deliss’s Nothing Hill studio. Susan was another ‘Instagram discovery’ and I was looking forward to meeting her. Stepping into her lovely studio was like entering Aladdin’s Cave: old and new silk ikats, embroideries, kilims, velvets and linens…a feast for the eyes!
Deliss had always been passionate about textiles but it wasn’t until 5 years ago when she decided to set up her own company. Previously she used to work as a lawyer for an investment fund , and back then she would use any spare time on her trips (very often to the Middle East) to source fabrics for her ever growing collection.
She works with very skilled artisans that help her to translate her designs into reality. Susan’s attention to detail left me speechless: the colours, the texture,the pattern…she surely knows what she wants and the result of everything is simply impeccable.
Below I’m sharing some images of Susan’s home in rural France which was featured in House and Garden last summer. (Photography by Paul Massey)
