Lots of new wildflower inspired fabrics at Liberty out now – a prodigious 166 in fact. The new season takes its inspiration from ‘the study of wild gardens and represents the exuberance of nature, and wildness of the un-tamed spirit.’
What we really like about Liberty here, apart from its never-ending floral pattern creation, is its product descriptions: names of plants rendered are given alongside interpretations of what they symbolise. It feels more appreciative of the plants than just descriptive, making the fabric seem all that more special.
Below interior designer Anna Balboni chooses her favourite ten. She says: ‘You can bring the garden into any room you want with these fabulous fabrics – just ‘fabric clash’ at every window, right-hand curtain Clarisse, left curtain Edna, hemmed with Sabrina – plant your garden how you choose, it will look stunning.‘
