Felicity Miller: Charleston Farmhouse

I assumed Felicity Miller‘s new Charleston Farmhouse collection for Freespirit referenced Charleston, South Carolina, but no, it’s about the Charleston house in Sussex, England, the meeting place for the loose collective of creatives and intellectuals known as the Bloomsbury group.

They just added two designs: Hedgerow by Angie Lewin and Bird Garden by Mark Hearld. At £32-46 per metre (around $50-73) their fabrics are an investment, but I can’t think of many [...]

Alice Apple

I stumbled on Alice Apple‘s designs while clicking around Spoonflower. These bold, graphic prints are inspired by Scandinavian children’s prints of the 1960s-70s. It looks like she will be using her custom digitally printed fabrics for her delightful range of homewares and toys that are for sale through her Etsy shop. No fabric yardage/metreage at [...]
