November Mood board – Inspired by Westonbirt

This month we have been inspired by the beautiful colours at Westonbirt Arboretum here in Gloucestershire. Nature is often the source of ideas for Vanessa’s designs both in colour and pattern and for November we have chosen warm Raspberry and Cranberry shades along with earthy Stone and Mushroom, reminiscent of autumn leaves and branches . Try using a soft, neutral colour on the walls, something like Portland Stone by The Little Greene Paint Company.

Mix small and large scale patterns – this will stop the room from feeling too busy. If you have wooden or stone floors, invest in a good quality rug to help keep the room feeling warm.

Our favourite November fabrics:

Cow Parsley in Cranberry and Stone

Fern and Dragonfly in Raspberry

Acorn and Leaf in Mushroom

Rainbow Rug woven by Solva Woolen Mill in Pembrokeshire
