Ab Fab May Blog Post! – New Arrivals
Since re-opening the showroom we have had a new batch of fabric books delivered from multiple brands giving us lots of inspiration for new interior schemes. Here at Ab Fab we have wonderful customers with such a variety of homes, from 16th century cottages, to modern newbuilds, our new books cater for all!
Firstly, the new collections from one of our favourite brands, Camengo, has brought much joy to us and our customers. Its array of bright, bold fabrics from the collection Paradis Print has been a popular option for our clients that love flamboyant interiors. The second Camengo book that we have oozed over is San Francisco, with a collection of unique geometric shapes in an array of colours, this book has been a popular choice for our new build customers, its fun shapes and straight lines create a clean but fun feeling to every type of room. The final book of Camengo's new collection is Jade, it's safe to say that the Ab Fab team has completely fallen in love with its intricate embroidery and soft pastel colours, this collection of fabric includes soft colours, Japanese patterns with details of willow trees which represent balance and harmony, key features that we look for in interior schemes! The Jade collection is a fab option for bedroom schemes as it creates a calm atmosphere.
Another brand that has blown us away with their latest collection is ROMO and Villa Nova. With new shades of our most popular fabric Hanna and lots of lovely new designs to woo over, this brand really has pulled out all the stops. We love the combination of soft greens, gentle neutrals and peach tones! This colour scheme works well in client's homes that are nestled within the Cotswolds, as it brings out the beauty of the fields and meadows surrounding. The Fabric ‘The Potting Shed’ incorporates gorgeous colour ways and shows an idyllic setting, this fabric would work beautifully as cushions, curtains or roman blinds in an orangery overlooking a beautiful garden. This brand has also brought out some gorgeous new voiles. Over the past few months voiles have become so popular, whether they are used as a dress curtain, to dim the sunlight coming through or to soften hard lines of a bi fold. There new voiles were loved so much that one of our own designers has had it made in to curtains for her own home!
The final brand we are excited to be sharing with you is Clarke and Clarke, their latest collection Pomarium is a firm favourite for summer, with its funky patterns and sorbet shades it makes any type of room that little more fun. Our 2 favourite fabrics from this collection are the embroidered fruits, from luscious lemons, zesty toned oranges, bright green limes and huge pink grapefruits these fabrics bring an element of fun to any room, but would work particularly well within kitchens, dining rooms, garden rooms, and rooms with lots of light, here at Ab Fab we could pair these flamboyant fabrics with complementing paint colours from Little Greene.
