Chintz

In my eyes, there is no such things as too much chintz! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know this to be a true fact. Whether it’s a new item of floral clothing or a vintage Sanderson fabric, I am like a magpie to the colourful and ditsy blooms.

Happy Friday!

Tap View

Last weekend I had a lovely weekend which consisted of pottering around in the sunshine and visiting some local vintage shop that are near. My find of the weekend has got to be this oil painted bouquet, which proudly sits above the sink in the kitchen. It may not be a window view, but it’s just as beautiful…

Happy Wednesday to you all!

1947

I have always been interested in print making and one day, it is something that I would like to learn how to do. What is more personal that a fabric that has not only been designed by yourself but also printed by your own fair hands?

As soon as I saw this image of factory workers printing in 1947, that I had to share it with you. Even though printing techniques have been modernised nowadays, I love the team work and attention to detail that the ladies would have had to commit to to create lengths of cloth, with each batch being unique due to the nature in which they were printed back in the day….

Floralistic

As I look out the window, the rain is coming down thick and fast and I’m finding myself looking forward to the warmth and colour that Spring brings. I always try to flood (no pun intended!) my wardrobe, home & garden with the brights and florals that remind me of the season as a way to perk up my winter hibernation!

Visual Delights

I seem to have been drawn to pink inspirations of late and how, when the colour is mixed with subtler hues the colour jumps out at you.

Our house renovations are in full swing at the moment so I am on a constant quest for beautiful imagery to give me ideas and  have been filling up the Hana & George Pinterest page with visual delights!

Happy Monday and I wish you all a lovely week!

Floral Textile

With the heatwave that we are currently experiencing, I have been feeling all things summery and love the idea of making small changes to my home by adding bright bedding and fresh flowers! It’s an inexpensive way of adding a touch of summer, whilst making a welcoming impact.

{Apologies for the mini blogging hiatus – things have been super busy with Hana & George in the workshop!}

Converted Flair

Welcome to the home of Kate and Andy Spade.

This stunning home is a converted art school which has been transformed into an eclectic home, whilst also preserving its beautiful history and features. I love the diverse collection of furniture from an array of eras and the unique flair that has been added to their home.

Gold Mountain

I adore the eclectic variety of colours and textures in this space. The sofa with its welcoming mountain of cushions with their clashing prints, and the colourful and calming painting in the background encased in its gold gilt frame…

LOVE.

Printed Delight

Even though the weather that we are currently experiencing doesn’t reflect the arrival of British summer time, doesn’t mean that your home and wardrobe don’t have to! Whether it’s clashing floral prints, a burst of colour on an upholstered chair or an over haul of all things bright and beautiful, here are a few stunning images to get your creativity flowing!

Hope you’re all having a lovely week and that you had a happy Easter….

Combined

My inspiration for this week has heavily lent towards fabrics and their manipulation. I love mixing fabrics that shouldn’t go together but do, and appreciating the bold move to combine what perhaps isn’t considered ‘ordinary’.

The floral fabric against the bold green wall adorned with the ornate mirror & fireplace, the eclectic rugs against the lily pad bathroom and the attention to detail in the pony skin coat and the intricate work of the bird embroidery. All stunning.
