Print-tastic Collection

Go big or go home, that’s what we say. This season, don’t be afraid of prints. From clashing to complementary, prints are a way to express yourself, whatever you might be feeling. Florals are luxurious and painterly, wallpaper designs are trippy and fun and prints have an almost textured finish. Think quirky, jewelled and colours that tell a story.

When it comes to prints, anything goes. If there is a particular style of print that floats your boat, then embrace it. Florals are a print trend seen on catwalks all over the world. They can be interpreted in so many ways, and for autumn winter; the more dramatic the better. The "Kingfisher Chintz" kimono by Mentalembellisher depicts beautiful blooms and birds, with a slightly muted colour palette. We also love the painterly print of Magenta Rose Designs "Mustard Floral" iPhone case, which is perfect for adding elegance and style to your phone. 
It might be autumn but that doesn't mean you have to banish all thoughts of hot, tropical climates. The tropical print trend is a fun way to incorporate prints into your wardrobe and home. From exotic fauna to jungle creatures, going tropical will keep you warm whatever the weather. Josef McFadden's "Montane Print" vest features stunning watercolour florals in a beautiful all over print, and Joyce Allen Textiles "Tropical Jungle" rug is a unique way to incorporate the print trend into your home. 
However you want to interpret the print trend, just remember that patterns are everything. They can be fine and detailed or bold and graphic. This is a trend to enjoy. For patterns, don't be afraid to mix colours. You can keep them simple and muted or loud and proud. For something a little delicate, Grace & Favour Home's gorgeous "Ines" bean bag will add a pop of pattern to your lounge. If bold patterns are more your thing, then opt for Patricia Shea Designs "Belvedere" long sleeve shirt. Print perfection.
