Welcome to a dazzling new season from Designers Guild – Autumn Winter 2018
For Autumn Winter 2018 they draw inspiration from a remarkable woman, the nineteenth century explorer Isabella Bird who travelled the globe from China and Japan to India and Persia. And so, this season’s designs are imbued with a global and glamorous sophistication, inspired by mementos, writings and photographs from Isabella’s travels. The collections span a variety of styles: from the vividly coloured and distinctly rich, to cool and elegant or graphic and tailored atmospheres. Textiles are rendered in an unrivalled use of inky watercolour and in elegant and sumptuous textures of velvet, linen and cotton. Plus intricate fretwork stamps, inspired graphic pattern and this season’s geometric, the hexagon. All exquisitely composed in a wondrous colour palette of amethyst and burnished gold plus a new incarnation of saffron and scarlet, rose and ochre alongside moss, celadon, linen, silver and flannel grey tones. Wallpapers include smaller scale metallic textures, iconic and sophisticated graphic designs, stunning botanicals and inky florals, as well as sweeping and immersive panels of hand painted foliage and flowers. See it all HERE.
Here are my 3 favorites:
Unique and hand drawn large scale nasturtium leaves in a modern botanical style with expressive tonal detailing. A graphic statement wallpaper design that is printed onto a smooth non-woven ground for ease of hanging. Available in five versatile colourways.
A modern and graphic abstract print with rich organic tones of colour. This striking design is digitally printed onto a scoured linen union blend and is the perfect design for curtains, blinds, cushions, bedcovers and upholstery. In one statement colourway.
Sweeping watercolour florals in a palette of lustrous blues with radiant accents of green, mauve and lilac. This incredibly soft digitally printed velvet is a perfect fabric for luxurious curtains, blinds, cushions, bedcovers and upholstery alike. In one serene colourway.
