This week's Fabric Friday is brought to you from the Design Centre at Chelsea Harbour. Twice a year they have an open week for trade and on the Friday the public are allowed to view the most recent home decor collections. It's a great chance to see what's out there, as inspiration for Cheeky Leopard, but also for inspiration and colour palette ideas for the design work I do at Makower UK. It's great to have every showroom under one roof and to get an over all view of trends.
The main atrium had a massive chandelier made from richly coloured tassels.
I love the richness of this Sarasa-inspired fabric at Colefax and Fowler.
The floral above was heavily embroidered and the flower heads were huge!
Scion does lovely fresh colour ways like the one above. I love the use of pinks and mustards with soft grey.
Villa Nova also does some pleasing colour ways. There seemed to be a lot of grey and yellow out there......
....as well as coral and grey. The silhouette leafy fabric above has a lovely soft watercolour feel to it. The collection is called Hana and is inspired by crafts and motifs of Japan.
The Kelso collection by Romo draws on heritage charm and uses delicate florals with plaids and stripes. It has been inspired by the British countryside as well as stately homes and country cottages. The designs are historical but have evolved to suit a contemporary client.
