Since the european launch of new fabric and wallpaper collections we’ve been busy working out what to bring to Bristol. Its been encouraging to see that colour is definitely returning to Interiors so get ready to see lots of bright colourful designs.
Its been widely publicised that Pantone Greenery, described as a fresh and zesty yellow/green is the colour of 2017, if you combine this muted earthy colours and the occasional pop of primary colours you can begin to see the way the interiors colour palette is changing from the tonal greys/neutrals.
We were really excited to see that Osborne & Little have launched a fantastic collection – ‘Enchanted Gardens’ with its colourful garden/woodland designs and ‘Masque’ a collection of woven fabrics in bright colour combinations being real winners:
Designers Guild continue to produce amazing fabrics using their bright signature colour palette. This year they have taken their inspiration from Majolica ceramics and coloured Murano glass. Get ready for bright colourful designs – perfect to welcome spring! Christian Lacroix continues to showcase their extravagant and spirited designs with their new collection – its certainly not for the faint hearted:
Cole & Son’s wallpaper collection ‘Ardmore’ celebrates african traditions and cultures. Using designs from Ardmore Ceramic Art it explores Africa’s flora and fauna and they have produced the most beautiful collection of colourful wallpapers:
What were our highlights? …. there were two memorable designs. Kit Miles and his amazing fabrics/wallpapers – the intricacy of his designs is staggering – just look at his Rainforest Design for Osborne & Little, they are exceptional. The other would have to be the diversity and humour in the Coles Ardmore Collection – is fun and you can’t help but smile when you see dancing elephants!
We’ve also been busy working out what new accessories and gifts to bring to Bracey Interiors in 2017 – here’s just a snippet of what to expect:
