Okay so here is the designer in London that I told you earlier about — I am so completely inspired by British textile designer Victoria “Vicki” Murdoch of Silken Favours right now! Seriously, the lady walks on water. Do you know her? She creates hand-drawn silk scarves inspired by nature and they are available exclusively at Liberty. You have to watch this video, she is positively lovely!
I’d love to buy a ton of them (I wish!), sew them together, and create a gorgeous curtain for my guest bedroom or stitch them on top of a quilt for duvet… Imagine? But I think I may just buy one and frame it for my bedroom…
Her designs could so easily work in the home — throw cushions, shower curtains, I see a big future for this lady! I love the cushion that she made for one of her clients shown above. So sweet!

Today’s spotlight is on Noa Noa and later on, I’ll post a fashion accessories designer in London whom I’m just nuts about at the moment. Why fashion on a design blog? Why not? Fashion and interiors go hand in hand, one inspires the other. I encourage you to check out Noa Noa for Fall 2011 and visit their new website and blog.
This Danish brand is a favorite of mine and with their shop around the corner from my house, you know where I go for inspiration. I appreciate their sense of style, gorgeous color palettes, how well the clothing is made and their attention to detail from trims to sequins and beading. It’s divine.
Isn’t the children’s clothing just darling? The layering of patterns makes me think of doing something similar on a daybed or sofa. Also notice the colors and think of ways you could introduce a few of them into your Fall room scheme.

I can’t resist showing some of the colors that are part of the palette for Danish fashion brand Noa Noa for Spring 2011. Their shop around the corner from me never ceases to provide a spot for instant inspiration — I just walk in and enjoy being immersed in their dreamy world of cool colors and warm textures.
Seems they are right on the mark with their colors, at least according the Pantone Spring color forecast for this year. Yum. I’m looking forward to seeing how this translates into the world of interiors in the months to come.
You can allow Noa Noa fashion to inspire you to dream up a bedroom color scheme, some new pillows for your sofa, the wrapping paper that you’ll use to gift a friend, the outfit that you will wear to a lunch date with your honey…
