    HOT OFF THE PRESS: Don’t miss the sublime new bedding ranges from Clarissa Hulse

    by  • Tuesday, April 7, 2015 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    If the glorious weather of the past Bank Holiday weekend is anything to go by, it seems like we’re well on our way to spring – hurrah! It’s time to ditch the winter coats and furry boots outdoors, and stow away heavy tog duvets and snuggly quilts inside. So, with their summer-friendly alternatives draped across the bed, what better time to invest in some spring-like bedding? If you’re in the mood for something lighter and brighter, check out the new Prairie and Block Patchwork ranges from Clarissa Hulse. Fresh for Spring Summer 2015, these two new bed linen designs are just the ticket to brighten up a neutral room.

    The Prairie print, shown above in Tumeric, features a delicate spring pattern of meadow flowers and grasses. Comprised of zingy mustard tones offset with a delicate white background and steely grey accents, it makes for a light and airy motif that wouldn’t be out of place in a boutique countryside hotel. Want to extend the palette into the rest of your scheme? Try the co-ordinating Trillo rug from Habitat, from £150.

    Less overtly floral than traditional summer prints, Block Patchwork in Pebble (above) is the second gorgeous offering from Clarissa Hulse. Inspired by Clarissa’s travels, from a branch washed up on a tropical shore to pressed dill flowers in Wiltshire, every square of the graphic print has its own little story to tell. Made up of complementary fern and leaf prints in warm teals, cool blues and biscuit tones, it’s the ideal pick-me-up for a pared-back scheme. Accessorize simply with twigs of pussy willow and occasional red accents, for an understated take on the traditional summer look.

     

    Bedding is available from mid April from Clarissa Hulse or John Lewis, and can be pre-ordered now. Prices start from £20 for a pair of pillowcases

    Sneak Peek: Get into bed with Joules!

    by  • Sunday, May 27, 2012 • Look what I found • 3 Comments

    I’ve struggled to sleep this week under/on top of my 13.5 tog goose down duvet. Suddenly it’s summer and my bed is not ready! Having just previewed the new Bedeck bed linen range in collaboration with Joules, I’m now feeling a little inspired to sort out my bedroom, dig out the summer duvet and change the sheets. Although this is an AW12 collection, I think the country-style prints are suitable summery and are available from mid-August. Take a peek…
