Bold colour meets luxurious fabric and statement prints

Colour can turn a house into your home by completely transforming how you view your space. With this transformation in mind, we’ve collaborated with colour experts Harlequin to offer a truly bespoke design experience. .

Our design team have produced an exciting new range of luxury curtains, beautiful Roman blinds with a selection of carefully matched cushions.

We wanted to select a company that could share our passion and enthusiasm for great design.  With their background in interiors, Harlequin was the natural choice for a collection that has colour at its core.

Harlequin combines cutting edge technology with traditional art methods such as watercolour, gouache and ink to get their beautiful prints.  Their approach to design has earned them the reputation for high fashion, statement patterns and rich colours.

Viewing the Harlequin portfolio, clear collections came into focus from opulent ochre shades to cool silver tones. Our design team have put together ten colour lines that feature plush velvets, faux silks, soft linens and muted metallic.

Our colour collections

Colour is never straight forward.  Our colour collections have some surprising additions that aren’t just pink or simply red. The pink collection features shades of deep damson and moody mauve that complement the fabrics in the shade range.

Our design team talk us through their favourite palettes and fabrics.

Pink

Pink is a beautifully versatile shade for interiors. This collection features deep damson, violet and heather tones against block rose pink thick velvet fabrics. Metallic flashes in contrast to soft pink on distressed textured velvet to create a stunningly versatile collection which can be contrasted with fresh white, cool grey or given a contemporary twist against daring purple.  Prints include watercolour inspired inky patterns and floral inspired graphic lines.

Caroline, Design Team: ‘ My favourite print is the beautiful Osamu in vintage rose. A soft romantic pink shade that creates the perfect shade for colour blocking with neutral tones or deeper purple and red.’

Ochre

Ochre shades are perfect for adding a burst of intense golden warmth. Our palette of rich mustard shades are juxtaposed with chartreuse, granite grey and muted metallic shimmers. Featuring watercolour inspired prints on soft velvet fabrics or eye catching gold metallic hand finished embroidery.

Mike, Design Team: ‘My favourite print is the Kelambu pattern featuring a pebble effect water colour design. Perfectly combined with cream, gold or beige tones to create a truly statement fabric.

Teal

The teal collection places a rich mix of intense peacock blue, emerald green and topaz together before contrasting with cooler ivory, cream and gold tones. The perfect blend of metallic shimmer, watercolour inspired effects, plush velvet fabrics and art deco inspired prints.

Caroline, Design Team: ‘My favourite fabric in the teal collection is the Entity print in shades of green, teal and gold. Featuring an angular geo-floral with stylised leaves and spots on a neutral background.

Gold

A truly regal mix of sandy blonde shades in geometric designs mixed with multi tonal floral patterns. Gold tones sit beside ivory and cream creating a light almost neutral palette. Textured faux silks blend with cut velvets and intricate patterns combine to create a versatile collection.

Chrissie, Design Team: ‘My favourite print is the Aucuba. A striking botanical feature fabric in steel grey and jet black with gold metallic slices.’

Rust

The rust collection features a selection of statement warm shades from bright copper to burnt orange on an array of luxuriously soft velvets. Graphite grey, rust, bronze and oatmeal add a ground impact to this intense collection of rich colours in graphic, linear prints and inky brushstroke effects.

Danielle, Design Consultant: ‘My favourite fabric from the collection is Flores. Although we feature this in two other colour ways, it is the most stunning colour combination in the rust, ruby and Nordic blue watercolour inspired brushstrokes. A statement print juxtaposed with a neutral background.’
