Brit Decor: Simple Folk

Folk-style isn't just about a particular look, it's also how traditional methods are applied during the design and make process, such as screen printing and tapestry, to arrive at a vibrant and well-crafted solution. So it's actually very refreshing so see a huge revival of Folk arts emerging in some of the latest AW2014 fashion and interiors collections. It's also a perfect Winter-look with playful scenes filled with woodland animals and playful patterns.

Today I've incorporated my signature simple-style into a folk-inspired narrative to create 'Simple Folk'. Here we immerse all the eclectic pattern into a calming pool of nordic calm, and a sea of pale neutrals. In a nutshell; it's the new modern cool.

To help kickstart the 'Simple Folk' look, 'below' I've made a section of my favourite picks from the cyber high-street to adorn our homes with. Happy shopping friends!
