Good Morning! I hope you checked out the video from the Flow ladies on my last post, because I've got more inspiration today. On Saturday I met the lovely Miss Xanthe B for a mooch round London Bridge and this amazing exhibition: Designing Women ~ Post-War British Textiles. Scroll down to see the gorgeous old-meets-new feeling of the area and then some snippets from the exhibition.
Seeing a panel of Lucienne Day's Calyx pattern close up was pretty amazing, almost like meeting your idol in person. I just wanted to dive in! What was great too, was seeing some of the colour palettes. When I was working on my new Paperchain project, I was really trying to stick to a restricted colour palette, but I found it really difficult. Some of this work made me want to try again. 2, 3 or 4 colours can work so perfectly together, it's really all you need.
Here are some instagrams of some of the beauties on show.
After that we had lunch with another best buddie Naomi, who created the fabulous Little Bird. We talked business and blogging and really inspired each other. I'm lucky to have such great, creative women around me, so it was the perfect exhibition to see first.
Designing Women is only on for another week (ends 16th June) so if you're in the London area and are a fan of Lucienne Day, Marian Mahler et al, try and get there!
