WALLPAPER - sian zeng

Sian Zeng's brand new wallpaper collection for SS20 has been revealed. Jungle is an abundant, playful and rich design filled with exotic animals just waiting to share their story. Using light and shade to depict depth and density, Jungle’s softer brush strokes recall the delicacy of nature. Designed collaboratively and painted by Aude Crepin an incredibly talented artist who has previously created work for Swarovski and Neith Nyer. Sian Zeng say they are "honoured to have her on board, illustrating such a beautiful, fun and striking design". Jungle is currently available in two colourways - Colour and Grey - to depict the landscape across both night and day. Also available as a Magnetic Wallpaper! Discover the collection online here.

FABRICS - pippa shaw

Pippa Shaw’s third collection - oasis - with FIGO Fabrics has just been released and is available for pre-order now. It was inspired by memories of a trip Pippa took to Morocco years ago. All of the patterns started out as hand drawn sketches that she developed into ink drawings and paintings, and then into patterns for this collection. Pippa envisaged ‘oasis’ as an escape from the hustle and bustle of the medina to a tranquil courtyard garden filled with tiles, fountains and palm trees. You can find the whole collection on FIGO’s website here. Pippa’s second fabric collection - midsommar - has just started arriving in fabric stores around the world. Midsommar’s vintage Scandi vibe and summery florals are the perfect antidote to grey cold days! If you would like to license any of these designs for your products please contact Pippa via her website.

I have more beautiful designs to bring you today from Pebbles Inc., which has been a part of American Crafts since 2009. The collection I wanted to post was 'This is Family' by Jen Hadfield (Tatertots and Jello). Jen is a designer based in Salt Lake City who says her fabulous collection is "all about family time, traditions and memories!". I've highlighted some of the best motifs and prints in the range and some of the wonderful creations made using the papers and embellishments from the design team at the Pebbles Inc. Blog.
