TEXTILES & FABRICS

 

Hand painted chintzes from India first appeared in Europe in the early 1600’s. Their brilliantly coloured motifs of exotic flowers and foliage, animals and birds, often adorned a Tree of Life. Four hundred years later, these designs are still highly sort after today and continue to ignite the imaginations of decorators, textile designers, printers and embroiderers. Rijks Museum’s collection of 18th century Indian interior and dress chintzes are extraordinary examples of beautiful designs that stand the test of time.

Styling is a reflection of our personality – our tastes, our power of observation, our own cultural upbringing and our talent for originality.

 

Creativity is a fundamental human compulsion to invent or to compose. Take time each week to create your own ideas, however humble you may think they are. Look closely at the details in everything and notice the colours, the shapes and the deep inner feelings you have when you are attracted to something. 

 

Creative expression comes from the many objects we have around us in our lives, a bowl of flowers, a favourite teapot on a lovely table, a painting or a garden on a misty day.

 

Creativity is inspired by the wonders of our universe.  When you are in the right state of heart and soul, just like magic you can tap into the endless flow of universal creative energy and resources and inspiration comes straight to you. -
