With a background in textile design, nothing makes my heart happier than a beautiful fabric collection. There’s something very special about textiles…from the initial spark of inspiration, then the careful designing of the layout and repeat to make sure the design works on a length of fabric, to the finished product on a gorgeous textile. With an enthusiastic love of all things Scandinavian, it’s no wonder that Finnish brand Marimekko is a firm favourite of the fabric world. The Marimekko summer 2013 collection, Colour For A Reason, combines landscapes and themes taken from nature with the joy of sunny days and graphic clarity. Sounds like my kind of perfect!
