Vanessa Arbuthnott Fabrics

Duck Egg blue is my best selling blue colour and was inspired by the Farrow and Ball colour 'Light Blue'. I created my first Duck Egg Blue living room design 25 years ago, hand mixing paint and printed curtain fabrics to blend with the room.   I was so charmed by this colour that I took it on into my collections over the next 19 years and it has proved to last the test of time. The shade of my duck egg blue colour fabric is a hard colour to describe...neither just blue...nor green, nor grey... but a blend of all of them. It is a colour that never dates in my view and is very easy on the eye; it doesn't challenge the eye in busy kitchens and living room designs and equally creates a serene feeling of calm. My main Duck Egg blue fabric designs are Cow Parsley, Acorn and Leaf, Swallow Dive, Down To Earth and Up the Garden Path to name a few…

There are many co-ordinating fabrics for the main Duck Egg Blue fabrics namely stripes, spots and plains...see my French Ticking, Stockholm Stripe, Pretty Maids and Plain Dotty and many more.
