The one thing that I absolutely love about my job is that I get to connect with so many wonderful fabric designers, one in particular for this month is ILIV fabrics. They provide the Hygge factor with their warming and soothing designs, fit for any room in the house, you would be proud to have guests around, just so they can swoon around the home.

I am excited to announce that these are now part of my stockist portfolio, so able to supply to all you lovely ILIV fabrics advocates and what is totally brilliant, they have just released their new designs, so these are must to have incorporated in your home, especially for the new year, which is just around the corner.

As always I like to talk you through all my clients designs and provide some inspirations to my readers, so first of all I need to tell you about Catalina. It was the first design in their new collection that definitely caught my eye and got my creative interior mind thinking. With four designs in this collection you will want to incorporate these beautiful fabrics into your home for spring 2018.

However, it isn’t always about homes, you can incorporate the ILIV fabrics into offices, restaurants, hotels, any type of business to help provide employees or customers that welcoming feel of being somewhere that feels nice to be in. Two in particular have caught my eye in this range.


  • Andora Fabric – The print is leaves and comes in 4 refreshing colours, Seafoam, Cinnamon, Cornflower and Iris, the warmness of the Cinnamon would be great in a living room or bedroom and the coolness of the Seafoam would be ideal in a summer house by the sea.
  • Avila Fabric – again comes in Cinnamon, Cornflower and Iris but the one that I totally love is the multi-colour of the leaves and floral prints, the colours are gorgeous and intriguing.


The other collection that I really love is the Sketchbook collection, these designs are particularly good for cottages, B&Bs & hotels, giving the rooms that farmyard / country feel… imagine waking up and looking out of a window overlooking a lake or a beautiful landscape out in the sticks, it really will give your visitors that homely welcoming feeling.

The Wildrose collection in particular, is gorgeous and I love the fabrics that can be used for cushions to give that comfy homemade feel. I cannot wait to start using this collection on new customers in the new year.

Ashley Wilde Fabric Collections

I’m using Ashley Wilde Fabric Collections a lot lately which made me think to show you some of my favourite fabric collections of theirs. This British company was started in 1950 and has collaboration with household names such as Kylie Minogue, Emma Bridgewater, Roald Dahl, Volkswagen and most recently, Ted Baker and Holly Willoughby.



Ashley Wilde Fabric Collections

Roald Dahl Ashley Wilde Playroom

One of my favourite fabric collections for children’s rooms has to be the Roald Dahl Fantabulous fabrics collection. It’s a really fun fabric collection showing off Quentin Blake’s illustrations that any child would love. With last year celebrating the 100 year anniversary since the birth of Roald Dahl, there couldn’t be a better way to honour your love of Dahl’s characters.

There are a range of fabrics, each depicting different Roald Dahl characters, you are sure to find your favourite character to bring some nostalgia into your home.


I used the Matilda fabric for my own children’s playroom for the curtains, pelmet and floor cushions and they absolutely love it.

Some other fabrics in the Roald Dahl collection include The Twits and James & The Giant Peach.




Ashley Wilde ‘Blake’ Fabric Collection

If you are looking to inject some spring colour into your room and your room, consider the contemporary Blake fabric collection. It’s a vibrant collection of prints and woven fabrics. These fabrics used together can create a real statement.

I love this collection for bringing a sense of freshness and fun into a room.





If you’ve been inspired by these Ashley Wilde fabric collections and are thinking of redecorating a room in your property, why not contact us to arrange a no-obligation home visit when I can bring the Ashley Wilde fabric sample books to your home.

Until next time. Love,

Dining Chairs & Benches

Many people do not realise that such a large range of fabrics exist for dining chairs. Instead of buying the standard ranges from high-street stores, why not customise your dining chairs with a fabric that is going to enhance the design of your kitchen or dining room.
