 I have just got back from Spain where naturally I made my way very quickly to Zara Home with all its fabulous goodies.They always get it absolutely right with the perfect mix of modern and luxurious accessories for the home.I particularly loved the aubergine set below as I am having a bit of a purple craze at the moment having just taken delivery of some gorgeous silk ikat fabric from Uzbekistan in shades of purple, navy and red.

suzani textiles by Donghia

This striking fabric is by textile company Donghia and is based on traditional suzani textiles from Central asia.

I just love the mix of colours.


This purple craze may well continue for a while as I am going to start a new cushion/print design for the winter using natural linen and aubergine.Will keep you posted!

I have quite a few posts in mind on my return including pictures of some of my christmas range.
