Our Autumn & Winter inspirations

Inspiration comes in many forms, and the changing of the seasons from Summer to Autumn seems to pull me back to my roots, where my childhood in England holds memories of the cooler seasons - chilly walks in wool sweaters and welly boots, stomping on leaves, rosy cheeks, and back home for a cup of tea and a toasted crumpets or a slice of mums cake to combat the coldness. I don’t think I’m the only one who loves Autumn, its vibrant rich colors are a draw for many of us, colors and smells. I associate many of the colors with places that are special or inspiring to me, so here’s a little more back ground on our new line up of linens arriving for Autumn & Winter.

Salcombe Blue - Devon is my home county, and taking a trip to the beautiful coastline in South Devon was (and still is) one of my favorite trips to make. The beautiful blue hues of the coastal beaches and waterways in Salcombe is the inspiration for this mid tone, dreamy blue, medium weight linen.

Balmoral Check and Balmoral Check with Red Stripe - A deep black and warm fawn brown check, crafted in a soft, heavy weight linen, inspired by those beautiful looking tweed fabrics Scotland is known for.

Trinity Check - University campus’s in the UK are typically historic architectural wonders. A subtle nod to classic academia style, Trinity Check is a dark blue with a vertical white stripe and a horizontal stitched white thread. 
Saville Stripe - A delicate pinstripe chambray of black and grey, this classic looking warm grey linen is reminiscent of beautiful tailored fabrics known to the tailors of Saville Street, London.

Copper Plaid - Whenever I go back to the UK, I always make a point to visit a National Trust house - they are usually historic seats that are protected and preserved by the National Trust and the kitchens are always one of the best bits - there’s so much beauty in the stone ware and the old Copper pans, smooth from decades of wear and cleaning, inspiration for our rich saturated copper and a deep navy blue plaid.
Espresso - I’ll admit that this is more about the buttery richness of Italian espresso….rich, dark and moody. A chambray linen of darkest brown and deep black gives this linen a dark rich brown.

Olive Green - As smooth as a dirty martini…a saturated, rich, mid tone
green in a medium weight linen. 
Milk - You can’t make a good cup of tea without milk!

Lambeth Check - London has many vibrants boroughs that form its identity as such an iconic city, the combination of new and existing cultures combining to shape different smells, tastes and creating new legacies in their evolution.  A nod to the vibrant, culturally diverse borough of Lambeth, Lambeth Check is a terracotta red and a navy blue check, crafted in a medium weight linen with a beautiful drape.

Dark Moss - Winter wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t go on a cold, rainy walk on Dartmoor in Devon. Famous for its wild ponies and big granite rocks that pepper the moorland, shrouded in moss. Our Moss Green linen is an earthy toned chambray of moody green threads resulting in a beautiful dark moss green, heavy weight linen.
Dark Peacock - a chambray of dark blue and bright turquoise thread, creating a zesty dark turquoise blue medium weight linen.

Margate Plaid
 - It’s not a new one, but my love affair with margate plaid runs deep. This is a complex plaid with navy, red and tan threads. Autumnal vibes are a plenty in this plaid.
Garnet - Our jewel toned Garnet is a deep, dark shade of red, in a medium weight linen.
