Winter Tweeds...

I love designing snugs and sitting rooms this time of year, I am currently working on a lovely country house for a gentleman and doing over 9 rooms.  I did his billiard room last year with blue gray walls and ANTA inverness wool tweed as curtains and stunning sisal flooring, antlers above the roaring fire.  I am now doing a snug for his boys.  Using a lovely mix of tweeds, sisal, linens, ANTA cubes and our Peony and Heather Tweed in his downstairs cloakroom to match all of his lovely shooting jackets.... I will post a picture when its complete.
 
However, in the meantime, a customer of ours Sharp and Noble who make the most wonderful headboards and footsools made this beauty this week in our Peony and Heather tweed.  I think its rather gorgeous.  If you would like to order one. Please contact www.sharpandnoble.co.uk for further details.

Some lovely photography of our fabrics from French Larkspur

I have been following the very talented Tracey Leber's French Larkspur blog and adore her sense of style and photography and she very kindly agreed to do a professional shoot for us on our Dove Broadstripes and Georgian Roses in her beautiful home.  Thank you Tracey!

Georgian Roses Antique Powder Pink & Dove with Side Frill Cushion
This fabric works beautifully with Dove Broadstripe either as cushions or as curtains. Stony Ground or Shaded White by Farrow and Ball would be lovely on the walls.

Beautiful Kitchens....

I have a bit of a weakness for stunning kitchens, particularly the shaker style, understated muted tones of greys, creams and blues.  I have always adored Plain English and a few other companies, but recently I came across DeVOL Kitchens.  I was captivated by their styling, colours and quality and am thrilled that they shot our Hare fabric this week in one of their spectacular kitchens.  If you would like an introduction just email me sales@kb-interiors.co.uk and I can give you more information. Alternatively, if you contact them direct, we would love a little mention.  Thank you and enjoy.

Little Girls and Little Boys

I have had a lot of fun this week coming up with room ideas for girls and boys.  I have two little girls Heidi and Amelia 5 and 7 and have just finished their bedroom in Just Bees in Blush Pink lined with dots and little breton stripes for cushions.  They have Hatley in Pink wallpaper by Cabbages and Roses and so far they love it!  I always wanted a little boy to, but time hasn't allowed and so I have created a scheme for my little Rory I never had! I also produced JUST Bees this week and have reworked the pinks in our faded roses to give you a faded and stronger option.  Would love to have your feedback and thoughts.  Photography by Phil Taylor.


Faded Candy Pink Roses & Swedish Grey Large & Mini 
Powder Swedish Grey Breton
I love this design with muted grey walls for any bedroom with the breton as little cushions
 

 Just Bees featured here in Blush Pink, Swedish Blue, Dove and Blossom
A beautiful, understated design and elegant for bedroom, kitchen or sitting room.  We can line this design with a co-ordinating dot just ask and we can make them into curtains for you.
 

 Lovely boys scheme or kitchen, first is Super Grande Breton in Denim

Another thing I spotted on Pinterest was one of our Roses and Ribbons and Rose Dot Lavender Bundles, that had not only made it to the US but was photographed and featured by the wonderful Laughing With Angels. Her blog is definitely worth a follow:

Crazy about Paisley...

We do love a bit of vintage paisley at Peony and Sage ... there is something timeless and classic about the various vintage paisleys, I am mad about ours, Cath Kidston's, Sarah Hardaker's and Vanessa Arbuthnott's ~ all different and all a nostalgic reminder of staying at "granny's" with the little eiderdown quilts on our beds which I now have and love. ....

I see a lovely new magasine, run out and get it they have just launched The Simple Things Magasine featured ours this week and Lucy at Corset Laced Mannequins made one in our paisley.. Thank you to all xx

This little lovely is available to buy through www.corsetlacedmannequins.co.uk

HOP HOP HOP in lots of colours...

Mini hares, I love them, as you may have guessed! They are so versatile and sit so well in kitchens, halls and bedrooms. They come in a variety of colours, 3 shades of pink, candy for possibly a little girls nursery, blush for a teenager and dusty pink for a more sophisticated shade of pink.  Blues come in aqua, duck egg, cornflower blue, powder puff blue and denim blue... ooo and Olive. All available online shortly.  We like to team them up with our dots and breton stripes.  If we really haven't got a colourwave you can fall in love with, send us through what you want and we may be able to match it up for you.

Enjoy and please leave your feedback ... or post us pictures of your interiors or anything you make by hand so we can hopefully add it to our blogs or pinterest boards... and feel free to pin our images if you can credit them to us would be wonderful!
