I know it’s not even winter yet, but this spring 2016 collection from Sian Elin was just too good not to share straight away. Sian may have one foot firmly rooted in the West (Wales to be precise), but she definitely looks to the East for inspiration. This collection is no exception, but it also has more than a touch of Scandinavian style too. The bold geometrics are featured in uplifting shades of fresh mint, warm blush, and rich teal and will be just what we will need after the coming season.
All of the patterns are hand-drawn in the signature Sian Elin markings which are instantly recognizable and everything is made in the UK. The wallpaper is printed in the North of England using eco-friendly water-based inks, the fabrics are expertly digitally printed at an 80 year old industry leading factory in the North of England and the cushions and fabric lampshades are hand-made in Wales.
I particularly like the way the patterns are adaptable to different styles of interiors. Pick out the pastels for walls and soft furnishings and you have a light filled scheme, but choose to pair them with the darker teal shades and you have something much more moody and atmospheric.
You could even use them as a burst of unexpected colour in a predominately monochrome or grey interior.
Available at Heal’s and Oliver Bonas – as well as independent stores across the UK and the Sian Elin website.
