It's time to reveal our stripes - a new placemat and coaster design collection

Updated: May 23

I've had some fun creating colour combinations for our latest stripy design collection to help you style beautiful, colourful tablescapes for all kinds of occasions.

Choosing colours that work harmoniously with each other is always trickier than it seems. And of course, there are endless possibilities, which means I have to stop myself from creating hundreds of colour choices.

I‘m always on the lookout for colour inspiration. I’ll create my own palettes with paint, pastels and markers, then cut them out to try them together. As anyone who knows me will tell you, I’m also a huge fan of Pinterest, which is brilliant for finding ideas for new colour combinations to use in my designs.

Let me introduce you to each colour choice individually:-

Aegean is made up of bright aqua and cyan colours with blue/grey and darker teal tones. This would be perfect for a coastal interior or just because you love a splash of ocean inspired colour around your home.

Piazza is reminiscent of a sunbaked Italian Piazza and features warm terracottas, chocolate, cream and a pale mint green. This option makes a lovely, more subtle table setting, and looks great styled with little plants and succulents in terracotta pots.

Allsorts is a bright colour combination that, unsurprisingly, is inspired by liquorice allsort colours, namely black, blue, yellow, pink, brown and white. If you let your family choose their favourites then the kids might choose this one. It does, however make a sophisticated arty tablescape with carefully chosen accessories.

Floribunda has a botanical vibe with it’s pretty floral tones. The pinks and greens work perfectly for a romantic summer table setting with plentiful vases of pink roses and scattered petals.

In the Navy is a bold celebration of navy and blue tones. This more monochromatic colour combination makes for a very smart, grown up table decor choice.

Spice is a warming collection of oranges, deep reds and a sage green. I'm looking forward to styling this for an autumn table with little pumpkins and scattered leaves.

As with all our placemats and coasters, please allow 10 - 14 days for delivery as each placemat and coaster is handcrafted especially for you when you place your order.

Which one is your favourite? Please leave a comment to let me know.
