My husband has designed this wonderful seaside fabric print which I have called ‘By the Sea’.
‘By the Sea’ was inspired by my early childhood in Solva and recent visits to Mousehole and St Ives. I delight in coastal towns with their cosy harbours and brightly coloured cottages, nestling behind little pathways that snake between terraced gardens and climb up the hillside.
This seaside fabric comes in three colours, Scree grey, Saffron yellow and Teal blue. The drawn line is a soft grey and the other colours create the houses and boats etc.
What can your seaside fabrics be used for?
These seaside fabrics can be used for all soft furnishings. This pictorial design can be made into wonderful blinds. There is so much to look at in the design, from boats, lighthouses, to dogs and people, as well as pretty cottages and the sea.
Roller blinds provide a wonderful flat surface for this seaside story. Children’s imaginations can be fired up and with the lovely detailed scenes and with light behind the fabric, the seaside can come alive.
Seaside print upholstery fabrics
This Seaside fabric collection covers chairs, sofas and footstools really well. It is printed on lovely 100% linen and is strong enough to be used for upholstery. ‘By The Sea’ would also look fabulous on a head board for a bed or scatter cushions in a seaside sitting room or bedroom.
What other patterns complement your seaside fabrics?
There are many fabrics form my other collections that may go well or contrast well with the seaside fabric range. My Plain Linen Unions in Saffron, Teal and Scree compliment and contrast with the Seaside pattern and add some stillness and calm to the interior scheme.
You could upholster a chair in By the Sea in Teal and then pop a cushion in Plain Saffron on it for a warm splash of colour. My stripes particularly Stockholm Stripe, again in coordinating colours, also goes well. Pretty Maids, a delightful spot is another successful coordinate.
