A Little bit of the English countryside and a little bit of the French countryside.. both were my inspirations for this collection. England with a French influence brings Guernsey to mind, an island in the English channel between England and France.
Known for beautiful landscapes, flower-filled window boxes and charming villages, I was smitten with the Island and it's history after seeing a travel documentary. Then after reading - and re-reading several times - the wonderful book, "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society". I have to admit that I fell a bit in love with all of it.
My Guernsey collection is filled with classic florals, paisleys, and a charming little vintage- inspired graphic plaid. The colour pallete has a bit of a French influence with the charcoal black, soft pinks and yellows. The leafy green and clear blue remind me of england. I hope my Guernsey collection inspires you to create an island of wonderful projects to surround you and those you love.
