Flower Shows are often associated with the summer months, but if you have green fingers there’s still time to see the best of what nature has to offer at this year’s Shades of Autumn Show.
Taking place on the 22nd-23rd October at the RHS Horticultural Halls, Westminster, this show is the perfect time to get some inspiration for your garden or even your home. Being unveiled at the RHS Show are 5 specialist nurseries that have been selected as they break the traditional mould and inspire creativity. So we thought we’d take a look at 5 floral fabrics that break conventions and motivate bold creative statements in the home.
Royal Romance brings florals into your home in a stylish and sophisticated way. It can be used to match both traditional and modern decors, as the flowers are large scale and placed on contemporary colourways, such as Mocha and Rich Gold.
This Olympos Ottoman fabric in Cranberry is perfect if you want to avoid chintz style florals. The fabric is in a damask style yet still has a sophisticated leaf pattern running through it. The colours of gold and cranberry are very autumnul and it has been paired with our complementing Olympus Agra design, and plain coloured scatter cushions.
Country Deco in Gunmetal is another of our fabrics that breaks the traditional cast. The two-tone grey colourway is poles apart from multi-coloured and chintz style florals. To give this look a real modern edge pair it with a bold colour such as vivid mustard.
Venetian and Venetian Stripe are the perfect fabric to make a striking impression. The seasonal Claret and Gold colourway is brought to life with a velvet – feel pattern. This new fabric looks great on either traditonal or modern furniture and paired with muted brass and silver accessories.
Bukhara is a beautiful embroidered Prestige, floral design, shown here in curtains. This fabric works with a range of contrasting contemporary fabrics you wouldn’t normally associate with a floral pattern, such as our Lindow and Zari fabrics and also modern style spotted and patterned scatters in complementing colours.
