The Cambridge Edition, Feb 2016

With Pantone announcing their colours for 2016 as Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue late last year, many of the spring editions focus on the soft pastel shades. Barker & Barker’s Serenity collection of checks and stripes feature the 2 colours and is therefore featured heavily in many editions for spring 2016.

The Cambridge edition has a wonderful piece giving lots of details and tips on how to use the 2 colours in the home, whether it is with accessories or statement pieces.  They feature our Serenity Fabrics Pink & Sky striped fabric along side the calm room set image featuring the fabric as curtains, cushions and light upholstery on the miniature sofa.

The ‘Royal Coast Resident’ featured our Dierama ‘Temperate’ room set to demonstrate how to use neutrals and metallics in the home, both of which are key interior trends for 2016.

Our Dierama fabrics are a beautiful collection of delicate woven designs based on an oriental theme and are available in a variety of soft and neutral shades. The fabrics were designed to complement each other perfectly and the collection also features the ‘Prairie Plains’ collection of upholstery grade fabrics which can be mixed and matched to the different designs.

Homes & Interiors, Scotland February 2016

In their February issue Home & Interiors (Scotland) ran a feature entitled ‘Flower Power’. Our floral fabric ‘Moselle’ fabric taken from our early Europa collection has been featured to show how floral fabrics can still work perfectly in modern settings. The ceiling to floor curtain looks stunning in the formal sitting room with the co-ordinating cushions and proves that florals can work in any interior.
