When the latest Vanessa Arbuthnott brochure landed on my doormat recently, I was immediately taken with this image from the new Bohemian collection as it encapsulates all I’d like to see in my kitchen one day. I’m obsessed with horizontal wall panelling at the moment, and combined with the colour scheme of creams and greys, vintage accessories and accents of colour on the wall, the end result is just perfect.
The collection is a celebration of the simple pleasures of rural living. Three new fabrics include a contemporary toile de jouy depicting countryside scenes, a stylised floral design and a block printed leaf pattern; these are complemented by a selection of stripe and spot patterns updated in a range of new shades. The colourways comprise the subtle earthy colours that Vanessa Arbuthnott is so well known for, as well as striking bolder hues like saffron, damson and cornflower.
If you’re interested in seeing how this inspiring photo shoot was put together, take a moment to watch this lovely video showing all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes.
