I couldn’t contain my excitement when the time came to collate ideas for our spring collection towards the end of February. It felt uplifting coming out of a furiously wet and windy winter and that paired with a tease of sunshine breaking its way through the clouds meant spring optimism was setting in.
As always, a carefully considered colour pallet is the rooting element that helps me curate a collection that is truly harmonious. I sought comfort in exploring more natural tones. The notion of bringing nature into the home instigated luscious shades of green, from refreshing apple to a more relaxed olive. That paired with warm pops of yellow and amber helped to bring a new energy that has a rejuvenating effect.
Continuing a more natural aesthetic, I was keen to introduce handcrafted pieces that boast wonderful tactile qualities to bring a sense of comfort to the collection. The lovely woven textures of our wall hangings soften a space and help you to create a focal point in a room without the need for large artworks. Additionally, pairing honest pieces like our recycled glass bud vases, that are confident in their imperfections, with natural linen and washed cotton brings sophistication to a more rustic home vibe.
Grasses, palms and other dried foliage’s have become an official interior trend of 2021. They are completely universal and can look great styled in any vessel from a brightly coloured glass vase to more neutral terracotta.
Finding the right location to photograph our spring/summer collection was important. I wanted a period property that would have enough space and grandeur to help create a fresh, light and airy feel. The Curators Apartment is a stunning art filled holiday let and location apartment in Bath. It boasts beautiful double height ceilings and large windows, complimenting our spring collection by bringing together modern and contemporary with a more Scandinavian rustic aesthetic.
