Sneak Peek: Harlequin's New Folia Collection

Harlequin
I think it was the juxtaposition of naivety and sophistication that first caught my eye about the new Folia collection from Harlequin. Inspired by the distinctive style of 20th Century Scandinavian textiles, the collection marries the clarity of design from the era with a series of bright, bold and all round delicious colours. Dominated by botanical motifs, Folia is the perfect collection from which to create a new look for spring; I love that on close inspection one can see plums, figs, pears and olives amongst the meandering leaf trails. Plus, the diverse colour palette used (including midnight, ink and cerulean blue and forest, olive sap and apple, amongst many others) make the wallpapers and fabrics ideal for using in existing schemes. My personal favourite from the new collection is the Flavia fabric (used to upholder the sofa in the first image) but the yellow and grey Akin fabric (last image) also has a classic, timeless feel to it that I like. What's standing out to you from the new Harlequin range?

  9. I'm very much in love with Akin too, but the website doesn't seem to know about Akin or the new Folio collection... Their "new" collection featured on the home page dates to 2011. WIth exposure on Bright Bazaar they had better get ready for the crowds!!! ;)

  15. I used to swear I would never ever ever ever wallpaper a wall, but so much of that is appealing to me. We have mostly heavily plastered and totally un-wallpaperable walls, but a girl can dream.

  17. I do like that first fabric got to say. The collection kind of reminds me of Sanderson's bloomsbury collection and Frangipani by Zoffany though....

  20. Hi Rebecca. It's lovely, isn't it! Take a look on the Harlequin website and if you can't find info there, I'd drop an enquiry via their website to the Harlequin team. Good luck!
