Happy Friday Design Lovers!

I’ve finally recovered from my last round of INTERIOR DESIGN CLASSES  and I’ll be BLOGGING up a storm again starting with FABRIC FRIDAYS! Every Friday I’ll focus on a particular INTERIOR STYLE and 5 wonderful fabrics to compliment – hero pieces and the support crew! If you’re a past PLACE CRAFT student you’ll know just how much I LOVE fabrics and how important they are to expressing your personal style. So without further ado…

This Friday I’m feeling a little English countryside and I’m absolutely loving the “Hodsoll McKenzie – Estate” collection out of London.  So if you’re an “Escape to the Country” fan – then I hope you feel transported!

This is my hero fabric – a soft and humble floral on linen base with muted earthy tones, reminiscent of a sweet country garden. Perfect for a cosy armchair and scatter cushions.

I’m adding in some traditional English tailoring in a cashmere geometric – perfect for a large piece with square profiles like a big ol’ ottoman or formal lounge.

Some pattern and contrast will bring a little sophistication to my provincial cottage – throw cushions, nothing too large, I want to keep it cosy.

I love this wispy textured fabric for throw cushions, it modernises the country style and brings some nature indoors.

And lastly this embroidered accent that reminds me of cobblestones and rock walls of the traditional cottage. This soft sheer-like cotton will make a nice feature at my cottage windows.

Thanks for joining me on my country stroll – now I feel like a holiday!

Have a great weekend!

Linda 🙂
