Etta is making shapes in our Showroom!

The very clever people at Villa Nova are always bringing out fun, innovative collections, too many to mention in just one blog! With so many books in our Showroom, one of the reasons we love when our clients come in for a visit, is how we are reminded of how many wonderful fabrics are out there. Recently a dear client reminded us of our love affair with Etta, Villa Nova’s funky fresh geometric collection.

Using bold colours through block prints and brave brush strokes, the collection is fresh and fun but easy to compliment with some more subtle colours and patterns. To see the collection in full pop in to our showroom, remind us of more of all we have to offer!

   

   

Hotter than the tropics

Summer is here (we are ignoring the clouds!) and our interiors are singing from the same sun-drenched hymn sheet. There is no better time to indulge in a few nautical touches around your home, especially if you are off to the coast, bring home some pebbles, or driftwood, let Mother Nature be your Interior Advisor! A few well placed shells in a bathroom, with something as subtle as changing your towels to a sumptuous navy, your whole room is instantly transformed.

Here are a few of our favourite seaside fabrics and maritime wall coverings, just to give you a little inspiration. To go through our books pop by our Gastard showroom, we’d be happy to guide you through any choppy seas!

Listen to the ocean

Everyone seems to be indulging their tropical side this Summer, and we are all for it! The high street is bursting with fun, fruity little pieces to add instant and inexpensive tropical glamour to your home. If you are looking for something a little more long-lasting, don’t forget you can buy our fabrics by the meter, to recover some cushions or have a small kitchen blind made, need not alarm your bank manager.

Think bright colours and bold prints, from Penzance to Palm Beach, there are so many ways you can embrace this current trend. If you’re having a dinner party, why not create a great centrepiece with a couple of pineapples, or fill a clear case with lemons and limes for instant colour.

Here are just some suggestions in fabric, these prints are so fun and fancy-free we’re inclined even to frame a meter and hang it in the hallway. For more ideas and inspiration pop by our showroom.

Sanderson Chino

The sun is certainly shining, and this heat means we are looking at soft fabrics, light in colour and weight. Sanderson’s new collection ‘Chino’ is bursting with soft drapes in gentle colours, with the feel of old denim. Perfect for upholstery, we love the idea of revamping an old chair, but also ideal for scatter cushions and dress curtains. To see the collection in full pop by our Showroom.
