With a fondness for floral prints, specifically watercolours, it wasn’t surprising that the designs of Luli Sánchez caught my eye. There is something compelling about the way this Cuban-born artist and textile designer paints a print, the immediacy and simplicity of her designs is inspiring.

Emerson Fry – warm spring 2014

Fabulous Friday at last and holiday time for us! I can’t wait to spend some chill time with our family and friends, away from the hustle of the hamster wheel.
