5 CREATIVE WAYS 1 INTERIOR DESIGNER DECORATES WITH FLORENCE BROADHURST AT HOME
Interior designer and blogger Vivian Panagos is no stranger to colour and pattern. She’s been reinventing the cottage home she shares with her husband and two sons for years with shades that don’t shy away. So it’s no surprise we discover the designer with a penchant for pattern, is also a Florence Broadhurst fan! Here a five ways we her using Florence Broadhurst motifs in her home.
1. STATEMENT WALLPAPER
Florence Broadhurst’s Fingers pattern takes centre stage in the light and bright bedroom of Vivian’s youngest son. ‘It was the movement in the pattern that I found interesting, and it had just the right amount of subtly to cover all four walls,’ she says. A foundation of white keeps the space inviting and relaxed.
2. SCATTER CUSHIONS
Cushions are one of the most flexible tools of the trade for an interior designer. And by scattering them in a few of her favourite Florence Broadhurst patterns, such as Japanese Floral and Cockatoos, she has elevated a plain couch with eye-catching colour and pattern.
3. BOLD BEDHEAD
When Vivian’s eldest son requested a bedroom update inspired by the jungle, she saw the opportunity to use Florence Broadhurst’s Cockatoo pattern on a large scale. This time bold in a lush green, the pattern makes for a central statement piece that anchors the room. And it doesn’t stop there. Vivian is considering repeating the cockatoo print on the walls, too, in a white gloss/white matte for contrast.
4. EASY ACCESSORIES
When Vivian spied a set of tired Brentwood chairs on eBay, she knew there was potential for beauty with a little TLC. She coated the chairs in a white, chalky milk paint, and upholstered their cushions with Florence Broadhurst’s Ikeda motif for an understated elegance. The pattern also makes an appearance in her study as a revamped lampshade.
5. MESMERISING ARTWORK
It was the soft palette of blue, silver, and yellow shades that attracted Vivian to this Exotic Birds limited edition print. Flanked by two large mirrors, it commands the dining area without overwhelming.
