A few years ago I made a first visit to Northumberland staying in the village of Embleton with its wide sweeping bay overlooked by the remains of Dunster Castle. I loved the location so much that I am due to pay a return visit next. I was therefore delighted to come across the Embleton Bay range of fabrics and wallpapers from heritage brand Sanderson and fell in love with it! The collection comprises three elements – patterned fabrics, woven and wallpapers and includes a mixture of coastal and countryside themes which could be used independently or in combination. The wallpaper collection contains a mixture of birdlife and wildlife, flora and fauna together with depictions of shorelines, boats, coastal cottages and large, expansive skies. The fabrics comprise a range of nine printed fabrics and two embroideries giving a variety of textures and with designs mirroring those of the wallpapers. The weaves are a collection of beautiful textures suitable for curtains and upholstery.
The appeal of the collection to me, apart from the memories, is its variety and versatility. There are a mixture of traditional and modern designs which work well together. The different fabrics give a mix of texture and the colour palette is subtle but not dull. It would be easy to incorporate some of the on trend jewel colours such as teal or purple to add drama. Here are just a few of my favourites from each section.
Alnwick logs makes a stunning feature wall and adds a modern touch
Sea Houses is a fun design illustrating cottages along a lane meandering down to the sea
From the weaves section I like the textures of the Dune and Misty Haze design
