Jump into bed this winter with one of my favourite Australian designers – the iconic Florence Broadhurst. The new Florence Broadhurst Autumn/Winter 2016 bedlinen collection has just been released and it features some of her most inspirational and iconic designs that will surely bring a warm glow to the coldest of bedrooms.
If you have a love affair with denim and indigo blue, then you’ll love the new collection of bold patterns, moody blues and soft mink. This gorgeous new collection includes Birds of Paradise Denim and Florence Indigo –featuring moodier blues that create a hint of dark drama mixed with warmth and luxury.
Birds of Paradise Denim draws on Broadhurst’s experiences living and working in Asia, featuring a whimsical design of exotic birds and oriental flowers. Recoloured in denim blue with white, the quilt cover has a contrasting reverse in a delicate geometric, Octagonal Blue. Matching European pillowcases and square cushions have been beautifully textured in soft quilting for a luxurious contrast.
Florence Indigo showcases two of Broadhurst’s most stunning designs – Arabian Birds and Florence Tapestry. This is a sophisticated and elegant pairing with two harmonious patterns creating a delightful balance. The quilt cover features the Florence tapestry whilst the Arabian Birds are on the reverse perfectly capturing the fine detail beloved by design aficionados.
For a bold statement – and covetable sophistication – Circles and Squares, the classic combination of Broadhurst’s iconic oriental geometric forms, delivers in spades! The bold monochromatic design in a charcoal and white chenille jacquard is contrasted with the clean, beautifully delicate Chinese Silver Key pattern on its reverse. A clever addition to the Circles and Squares design is a matching bed runner – which adds a dramatic visual element to a plain white or charcoal quilt cover.
For a quieter, more reflective mood the new Floral Mink in wintery shades of warm greys on a white ground create a soothing vibe for a restful bedroom. This new floral print shows a subtle ombre transition from light to dark shades of mink with a quilting overlay that enhances the detail of the pattern while adding indulgent texture. The quilt cover reverse is Broadhurst’s Antique Lattice in solid mink for a beautiful visual contrast.
Florence Broadhurst bedlinen and accessories are available nationally from David Jones stores starting at $39.95 for pillowcase sets and cushions through to King Size sets from $299.95 to $339.95. Super King sets are also available in most designs.
