From the garden - a bunch of floral fabrics

 The sun is blaring down outside - a good excuse for a little internet browsing with the air con on! Here is a selection of colourful and painterly garden inspired florals that have caught my eye over the Christmas break.

Archipelago Tana Lawn from Liberty Art Fabrics. 
This design was inspired by the tropical gardens of Abbey Garden, Tresco. 
Tresco is one of the Scilly Isles, located south of Cornwall.

 Melbourne based printing duo Bonnie and Neil's beautiful homewares are printed on crunchy linen fabrics. I love how they have incorporated the begonia leaf in their designs - I have noticed a 
resurgence of this somewhat forgotten plant in a few Melbourne nurseries lately.

Hermosa is a vibrant and painterly floral design from Harlequin.

Fairfield by Nina Campbell is a loosely painted design of Lupins, reminiscent of 1950's summer dress fabrics.

Xanthe is another Liberty Art Fabric design inspired by the Tresco Abbey Gardens (with a sprinkling of sunny 1950's hand drawn style).

Zamera from Romo fabrics features painterly meadow flowers on a linen ground.

And last but not least....

Pandora Peony from Designer's Guild is a stunning fabric, digitally printed on linen. The large repeat combines an abundance of photographed and painted flowers. I can't think of a nicer way to bring some colour from the garden inside!
