04 Mar Mixing pattern
Posted at 14:17h in Posts
Mixing colour, pattern and texture comes naturally to those with experience and a keen eye, but can seem daunting to the rest of us. The appeal of John Fowler’s decorative schemes that played such an key part of establishing Colefax and Fowler’s house style were thanks to his ability to mix colour, pattern, texture and scale. Avoiding co-ordinating colour schemes and relying on the juxtaposition of related tones and the mixing of large scale floral designs with small patterns, checks and stripes became a mainstay of classic county house decorating.
It is in this spirit that Caroline Inchyra has developed a range of classic printed linens that work so well together you can create this look effortlessly. Built around a soft muted colour palette perfect for the English countryside and easy on the eye, the range spans classical prints, florals, checks, stripes and small scale patterns in a range of blues, pinks, greys, greens and mustard that work so well together. Many of the linens are aged as part of the production process and can sit as happily amongst antique textiles and furniture as they can something new, offering a style that bridges both the traditional and modern.
