We’ve found and fallen in love with fabric. I will write a few posts like this, looking at different manufacturers of fabric – picking our favourite styles and colours from the collections.
The first manufacturer we’ve selected is Villa Nova. Today I got to see and feel the new fabrics books for their Norrland collection and they inspired me to write this and explore the collection a little and their older collections further.
The first collection I’m looking at is Norrland. This is Villa Nova’s description of the collection:
“The Norrland collection captures the rawness of nature embracing the misty stillness of forest landscapes and a desire to connect with the outdoors. The essence of ‘hygge’, the need for a sense of wellbeing, is instilled in the collection. Norrland encapsulates a relaxed approach to combining a myriad of textures punctuated with handcrafted inspired elements and timeless folk patterns that translate into a casual warmth.” – Villa Nova
Norrland Indigo, Printed Cotton.
This design is available in a perfect selection of colour ways. The abstract woodland pattern would make beautiful window treatments and the colours within this allow you to bring the very popular copper accessories into the room.
Marit Shaker, Printed Cotton Linen.
Again available in many colours, we chose this because of its ability to subtly bring in greys, blues and even some purple tones. We’ve written about the inevitable blue trend that will be seen this year before and all of the patterns within the Norrland collection would fit perfectly into this upcoming trend.
Alder Bramble, Jacquard Weave.
Earlier today I saw this weave being paired with the design style Croft, Croft involves a lot of light woods, whites, blues and different textures, adding this weave and colour way to it added an extra layer and went very well with the blue accessories.
Sudare Eden, Printed Linen Union.
This is from the older Hana collection. We love the light mixes of limes, greys and corals. This fabric really allows you to bring in a wide range of colours and would be the perfect amount of pattern for a room.
Senza Eucalyptus, Decorative Weave. Sanza Sheer Eucalyptus.
This print is from the Senza II range. This is actually the fabric that I have in my bedroom, the Eucalyptus being a roman blind and Onyx a curtain, I didn’t realise it was Villa Nova fabric until this post. So clearly, I liked this manufacturer before I knew what it was (a good sign I think). This pattern is also available in a sheer with two different colours- I liked it so much I had to include it!
Of course, Villa Nova also do a lot of plain fabric, as well as, a great selection and range of voiles. The best thing about Villa Nova is their price -they are very affordable. If you’re wondering where to get them you can look on the Villa Nova website or head into your nearest John Lewis, they are bound to have a large range of look books and hangers for the collection!
