The romantic 'Bohemian' Collection from Vanessa Arbuthnott


The new 'Bohemian' collection of fabrics designed by Vanessa Arbuthnott is a real delight. 

Designs include a modern Toile de Jouey celebrating the joys of living a simple country life including - life in a shepherd's hut, growing vegetables, keeping goats, geese and chickens, putting washing on the line to dry in the sun. The Toile called 'For the love of Rose' after Vanessa's eldest daughter who helped with the design.
In the collection the Toile fabric is accompanied by five other enchanting designs:
'Gypsy Garland' - a delicate floral trail,
'French Ticking' - a stylish stripe,
'Leaf Dance' - a block printed leaf vein design,
'Pretty Maids' a dainty all-over spot motif and
'Stockholm Stripe'  - a statement stripe alternating with a pin stripe.

The 100% linen fabric is great for curtains, blinds, cushions and upholstery and makes up beautifully.



Vanessa says: 

“I wanted to create a collection that evoked pleasure and contentment, a visual celebration of nature’s beauty and magnificent colours, which we tend to overlook in our busy day-to-day lives.  I love the simplicity of a drawn line, depicting beautiful shapes such as washing on a line”. 



We think she has created a fabulous range of new designs. And, we are delighted to be able to share all of Vanessa's fabrics in our Yateley showroom - including the new 'Bohemian' Collection.
