A special day

I was recently invited by GP and J Baker and Mulberry, to a fabulous private launch of their incredible new ranges.  I had a wonderful day including visiting their design studio and also being treated to the opportunity to see just a very small selection of their archives.

 GP and J Baker’s collaboration with Historic Royal palaces  has provided a wealth of inspiration for the books in this collection – yet there is something for everyone amongst the three ranges. 

 The Mulberry Festival collection is exciting and adventurous in that special, timeless Mulbery way. These are just a few of my own images but I can’t wait for the books to arrive at Foxton House.
This fabric is a printed velvet suitable for upholstery. We already have an order for a window seat. I can’t wait to see it in place 


This chair is upholstered in printed linen with an embroidered fabric used to make the cushion. A good way to make this fabric go further is to use an less expensive plain for the two side panels and the back of the cushion. A metre of fabric can go a long way used in this fashion. 

I have loved this design since it was first launched as an appliqu├ęd and embroidered linen, which wasn’t suitable for upholstery.  As part of the new Mulberry launch, the same design is now available in a very hard wearing printed velvet. Fabulous !!!
