Inspired by the famous Yeats poem. I'm starting a new section of blogs. Here you can join me as I flick through the fabric & wallpaper samples in my library looking back at previous projects and looking forward for new inspiration - Hope you get some too!
I'm kicking off to-day, with a flick through The French Label Camengo's range. The sister of French Label Casamance, Camengo has been for me the more affordable and funkier label! I have used both in many projects, but I really feel Camengo although relatively new to the Australian market will really come into it's own here. It has a good range of fun vibrant fabrics, and great variety in texture, which I love.
After all, it's not all about the look, it's how it feels - Interior Design is so touch and feel!
Todays' book is French fabric Label Camengo book "Bastide"
Before we open and have a look ... I must relate the title!
Indulge me as a share with you one of my favourite poems by one of my favourite Poets
He wishes for the Cloths of Heaven
by William Butler Yeats
Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The Blue and the dim and the dark cloths,
Of night and light and the half-light
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

How to bring a bit of French Luxury into your home, remember small amounts can go a long way! Below One meter of Arles Fabric was used to build texture and diversity in Scatter Cushions! These were then mixed with other fabrics to build up a scheme that diversifies in texture and tone but keeps simple harmony in colour.
