For Folks Sake: Making Folk Work in Your Home (Not Cleaning)

I love the intricacies that folkloric designs involve, and the beautiful contrasting colours often used. The new Anoushka range from Harlequin really shows the bohemian influence, but with fresh contemporary colours.


Curtain fabric: Alina; Chair, a selection of fabrics from the Anoushka range

Curtain Fabric: Tulia

Whilst shopping in Liberty yesterday I also saw this new range (named 'Folklore') from Wild & Wolf, available to buy online from Bloomsburystore.com:


This 'Folk Garden' cushion by Gisela Graham is very sweet, it reminds me of old Clothkits patterns my Mum used to make. Available to buy here :


And whilst I'm talking folklore, I can't ignore the 'Taika' range from Iittala, designed by Klaus Haapaniemi, not new, but fabulous:


Klaus Haapaniemi has had a place in my heart for a while, but he deserves a whole other post...
