In Astrology, Saturn is the planet responsible for teaching us how to grow. “Saturn Flowers” is inspired by the idea that facing challenges is beneficial for our personal growth. Throughout the design are motifs of lilies seen in different stages of their life, beautifully visualising the idea of growth.
We think “Saturn Flowers” would be a fantastic design to use for decadent feeling interiors such as tablecloths, table runners and napkins.
“The Opera House” features Sydney’s most iconic building, The Opera House. The design offers a snippet of what life in the harbour city is like, with palm tree and floral motifs showcasing the beachy summer vibe that Sydney is famous for.
“The Opera House” would be a gorgeous design to use for relaxed mens’ button-up shirts and swimwear.
“Space Nature” is inspired by the signs of the zodiac and puts a playful twist on the astrological symbols by nestling them amongst the beautifully illustrated peonies. We love the warm, earthy colours of the floral motifs set against the rich, navy background.
We would love to see “Space Nature” used to create luxurious feeling bedding.
“Waratah” heroes the iconic Australian flower, beautifully intertwining waratah and rock orchid motifs that keeps your eye wandering throughout. The warm floral motifs are perfectly balanced against the cool, muted background.
We think “Waratah” would be perfectly at home across both fashion and homewares applications.
“Tucans” is bursting with tucan, monstera and palm tree leaf motifs cementing itself as a classic tropical print. The design features a linen-like texture throughout and gestural motifs which gives the design a relaxed, yet elegant feel.
“Tucans” is the perfect print to use for beach shorts, relaxed shirts and swimwear!
