Finally, Friday, where have you been? It's felt like a long week, and definitely time to kick back and enjoy the weekend.

Thank you to @joannaofbath for sharing this fab picture. It has a great weekend vibe - you can just imagine relaxing here with a drink and some tunes.

This chair has been upholstered in Stonewash Magenta from the Spectrum Collection, what a great colour choice!

Finally, some better weather! We hope you manage to get outside and enjoy it this weekend.

Aren't pineapples just the sunniest of fruits? They are also very satisfying from a design point of view, with their wonderful tessellating pattern. Our Pineapple design is part of the Fantasia Collection, just the place to find that colour injection!

Do you have any plans for the Bank Holiday weekend?

Monochrome design is often associated with a dramatic black and white palette, but it can be used to create a much softer, elegant interior.

Wisley featured here is available in some lovely soft hues. The design is very delicate, and perfect for adding that all important detail without being overwhelming.

And if you do want to add some drama with a few accents, why not check out the rest of the Manor House Collection! Website in bio.

10/12 Bee Gold

Bee Gold is a long standing bestseller from our Animal Charm Collection. The fabric is woven in Italy and has a very natural look. It's a simple but beautiful design and looks elegant in many settings.

I don't think we're alone in our love of bees! They are incredible creatures, however sadly these vital pollinators are in decline. We can help protect bees by planting bee-friendly plants, but did you know that bees love herbs? So get planting mint, lavender and chamomile!

9/12 Kew Grey

A fine printed velvet, Kew Grey is a bestseller from the Safari Collection. A gorgeous leafy design, with some brilliant pops of turquoise.

We print all our velvets pile up, do you know why? It is because the colours are deeper and more intense. We hope you like the vibrancy of colour in this example!

Happy Easter folks! Enjoy the long weekend and a few chocolate eggs 😋

Our very own bunny is featured here in the design 'Tresco', part of the Manor House Collection.

8/12 Wildwood Paprika

Moving up the charts of our bestsellers is Wildwood Paprika, a super print from the Woodland Collection. It's a cotton mix with a linen look, and drapes fabulously.

Again you'll spot a few subtle animals, which add to the whimsical style of this print. It's a really versatile design, equally happy in a Scandinavian scheme, or paired with wool plaids for a more traditional feel. All at a really competitive price point!
