Introducing our new ‘Grey Tailor Thistle fabric, available both as velvet and linen by the metre. Inspired by the silver slate greys of the Scottish landscapes with hints of rusty purples and ochres found along Scotland’s East Coast shore lines. Mix together with paint choices such as Farrow & Ball skimming stone or slipper satin for a sophisticated and stylish room display. Mix with Zoffany Water Iris linen for that delicate painterly look.

Add a contemporary look by mixing strong blues with accents of metallics. Use shiny accessories such as copper, brass, painted gold effect, perhaps a touch of the gold leaf?! Paint colour choices could be greys, purples or complimenting blues. Or how about the unexpected and experiment with warm yellows?
