If this glorious weather is making you long for a pop of colour then good news – you’re not alone! This week, we’re hankering after the gorgeous new collections from Kirkby Design. From gentle geometrics to pretty plains, its six ranges of indoor and outdoor prints offer a little something for everyone.
First up, take a look at the super-cool Arcade range (above). Inspired by the world of retro computer games, it’s a gentle nod to a bygone era, brought up to date with warm and modern colourways. From large-scale statement geometrics to a mock pixelated chenille, it’s a playful way to inject a little fun into your scheme. If your heart lies with simpler designs, then check out the Astro range instead; a textured semi-plain weave, it’s a subtle alternative with a hint of metallic that still packs a pretty punch. Sahara II is another gorgeous option, with soft-brushed cotton in minty green, pastel peach and soft pink hues.
Just in time for summer, there’s a fab selection of outdoor fabrics to tempt you, too. Terrazzo Prints (above) includes bold and bright offerings in a range of jazzy motifs. Take your pick from basket-weave patterns, graphic chevrons or bold stripes, then team them with the plain and semi-plain options within the Terrazzo Plains collection (below). Scatter across a deck-chair or outdoor sofa for an instant summer lift. For eco-conscious decorators, the Leaf range is right up your street. This eco-friendly collection is made from recycled Italian wool, and includes a delightful semi-plains collection in fresh pastel shades, all made with the environment in mind. Lovely.
With so many amazing options, sometimes it’s hard to know where to begin.
