Nothing beats summer with long warm days, blue skies and the festival vibes that come with the season. We’re ready for some outdoor fun and a disco shimmy as we hit the road for Glastonbury this week. With festival fever in the air, we’d like to share some inspired designs.
Mind The Gap’s ‘Woodstock 69’ collection embodies a bohemian flare through its lively colours and intricate details which celebrate beauty, freedom and the unconventional. We’re particularly captivated by the spirit of ‘Gypsy Soul’ with its bold yet warm colour palette and large repeat that is bound to make a vibrant statement in any space. mindtheg.uk
‘Hippie Paisley’ really takes one back to the summer of love. Its swirling patterns and vivid colour palette embody the nostalgia and idealism central to a movement that fought for love, freedom and peace. Mind The Gap have captured some psychedelic power in this design!
We love Pierre Frey’s ‘Festival Multicore’ and ‘Fanfare’ fabrics. We’re busy scheming for our upcoming hotel in New York’s Warren Street and we can’t wait to bring our vision to life using these exquisite bursts of limes, chartreuse and spice that are sure to add festival flare to our bedrooms. pierrefrey.com
Infuse joy by incorporating textural and sculptural elements to your schemes. We like to uplift our spaces with bold lighting, just like we did for our Turnell & Gigon collaboration. When we created a pop-up ‘Caribbean Suite’ in their Chelsea Harbour showroom, we designed a custom coloured tile chandelier. This emulates festival confetti and creates a fun and intriguing focal point.
For more 60’s spirit, our ‘Peace & Love’ fabric for Christopher Farr has a bright multi-coloured stripe design which adds height when used as curtains. When used in contrast with a bold print, it adds a tailored appeal. Our intention was to create a timeless patterned stripe to bring a sense of harmony and movement to any scheme. christopherfarrcloth.com
Experimenting with scale and proportion is a guaranteed way to create grandeur and intrigue. The large scale, geometric print of our One Way design for Christopher Farr is an illusion in itself depending on how you plan to use it. This design is not only fun, it is also tailored and smart, allowing you to play with the proportions of a room. It invites the rest of your scheme to join for a dance!
We hope these ideas have left you feeling invigorated. Never be afraid to add festival flare into your designs!
