Home and Gift show 2013

Not only did yesterday bring great weather but great inspiration, from Harrogate's Home and Gift show!
The day was spent searching for the latest trends for spring summer 13' where we gathered some great design ideas for our collection to keep us fresh and up to date!

'Shabby Chic' is still on the cards for summer 13 with emphasis on Parisian scenes, birds and sketchy line  drawings all within a soft neutral colour palette so lots of creams, browns and beiges.

We found that Geometric repeats are having an art deco twist- very 'Gatsby' inspired... with angular and stylised patterns sitting amoungst 1930's style type.

Talking of type there was alot of great typographic art-definately a key trend for this year so look out for lots of 'wordy canvas'
check out a few of our favourites:

we came across some great nautical inspired quotes printed on distressed wood to give in that rustic seaside look...

Overall it was a great day and we all came away with lots of fresh and exciting ideas!
