Kate Spade Featuring Florence Broadhurst

February 15, 2012

Love seeing the teaming up of Kate Spade and Florence Broadhurst for a limited collection of things for the home and to wear that look so fresh for spring. These strong black and white graphic prints caught my eye today, particularly when a bold, punchy orange is thrown in.  This would make for a fabulously retro kitchen scheme for sure! If orange isn’t your thing, you could swap it out for love heart red or a big bad banana yellow or even a fabulous kermit the frog green. And yes, I should totally name paint for a living or nail polish! ha ha!

Kate Spade Featuring Florence Broadhurst

Do you like this pattern or do you wish another Broadhurst pattern had made the cut? And did you see the lining of this coat? It’s gorgeous though severely out of my price range…

    I love this Florence Broadhurst design. I made a roman blind out of this fabric for my home five years ago, it’s still up and I love it every time I look at it. There’s something strangely calming about it and it never looks dated.

    I like the pattern but I especially like the move to MORE bold patterns. Like most, I was/am on the minimalist bandwagon but secretly am attracted to these patterns. No pussy-footing around – these are a STATEMENT!

    I love the white flowers on the black background, not so keen on the reverse for some reason.
    And the coat is rather lovely!

    I love this pattern, and especially how it’s reversed in the dress. Love the wallpaper, too.

    i have LOVED this print for years and years… and have pondered numerous times about how to use it in my home (a cushion, a canvas, a bed skirt perhaps)… and to be honest, i was a little sad when i happened upon this over at kate spade… it’s hard to explain, but i think i’m a little worried i’m going to grow weary of it now that it’s splashed all over pencils and shoes, handbags and bangles… a little like its new found popularity cheapens it… :(

    I love the coat lining!!! .. maybe in PINK color would be even prettier! I am a bit fan of black + white … thoooought this wallpaper design may be a bit too much for me, I do luv the design on the milk + sugar containers.

    Japanese Floral is my favourite Broadhurst pattern. So much so that a few years ago I painted my garden gnome in this pattern!

    You always introduce me to the coolest things I’ve never known I wanted! I love this pattern – I want the dress she is wearing! And I LOVE the coat! Thanks – I’ve got to find more of this fabric, even if I just have a piece to look at now and then…..lovely!

    I heart Kate Spade!

    I find the pattern quite interesting, it looks like a Mackintosh (Arts and Crafts) pattern with a retro 70’s look, I like it it has good strong design, would look terrific in a powder room with a white lacquered ceiling and a black floor.

    Thanks again for you are a great inspiration.
