The 1940's were a fantastic decade for style, it is this era that we draw inspiration for a ‘forties blue’ shade within our designs for this season.

We have introduced the blue hue in our Delft Flower floral fabric print - Traditional elements combine in this incredible and exquisite display of large scale floral blooms. Multi-coloured and intense, the florals float above a shaded powder blue ground.
We have also expanded our existing Varese velvet collection, expanding to over 100 colour ways - two of which are cirrus
& wedgewood - two gorgeous blues with a hint of grey to keep them contemporary.

Complete the blue look with Pavanazzo - A stunning small scale naturalistic terrazzo stone inspired wallpaper design. With beautiful flecks of blue-grey hues adding a hint of colour and tying this concept together without overpowering with one shade.
