Kids bedroom, sewing and upholstery fabrics

When we approached seven Australian women in design and asked them what they would make with patterned fabric from our new collection, we were overwhelmed by their unanimous and absolute love of Florence Broadhurst.

We were also very intrigued to find out what they would select from the 20 designs / 187 colourways!

And then the question, how would selections by seven different people work together in harmony in a day’s photoshoot?!

So we turned to Jessi of Jessi Eve Interiors with every faith that she could pull it all together. And that, she did!

Below you’ll see the textile selections of Jen Bishop (The Interiors Addict); Claudia Chan Shaw; Natasha Dickins (Little Red Industries); Jessi Eve (Jessi Eve Interiors); Richelle Langdon (Oliver Myles Interiors); Georgie Leckey (Heatherly Design) and Kate Malfroy (Rapt Upholstery) transformed into beautiful upholstery and home decor products.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT – most of the items made with Florence Broadhurst fabrics below, will be auctioned on eBay on Sewing Machine Day, to raise funds for The Beauty Bank. The one-of-a-kind homewares will go live at 7am EST, Thursday 13 June, and be listed for 7 days with bidding starting at 99 cents!

The Lounge Room

This space was very much brought together by Richelle Langdon of Oliver Myles Interiors who not only selected Japanese Bamboo in Mustard, printed onto Palermo velvet for the curtains and cushion, but also provided the stunning sofa, coffee drum table and throw cushions from her beautiful interior design studio in Sylvania.

We wanted to include an IKEA hack to show just how versatile our fabrics are for so many sewing projects, and chose the IKEA DIHULT pouffe to be reupholstered in one of the textile designs chosen by Claudia Chan Shaw – Japanese Bamboo in Magpie. This fab floor cushion requires 2 metres of our fabric. Claudia chose the base cloth Palermo which is just the most luxurious velvet, you will fall in love!

Jessi then added all her beautiful touches and props and here you have it… An absolutely stunning lounge room which we all want to drop into our own homes.

This is such an absolutely amazing space, with an abundance of Florence Broadhurst fabrics which Jessi somehow put together and it all just worked magically. What child wouldn’t want to live in this kids bedroom?!

The bench seat by Rapt Upholstery, room divider by Little Red Industries and bedhead by Heatherly Design are insanely beautiful.

Kate, also known as the Chairy Godmother (brilliant!) actually runs amazing upholstery workshops from her working studio in Jamberoo, NSW. Check out her schedule here and chat with Kate about how much Florence Broadhurst fabric you’ll need to order for your project.

The Reading Nook

What a spot to sit and relax. A book? A glass of red? Whatever you fancy, you’re in for a calming retreat. Jessi was drawn to 4 Colour Palm in Greenery printed onto Peau De Peche for the drapery and cushion. To this look was added a Euro and rectangle cushion made by Heatherly Design and a cute-as-a-button round cushion in Spanish Plate ‘Forest’ selected by Claudia Chan Shaw. Jessi asked our clever seamstress, Leonora, to add a jute fringe which gave it the most beautiful finishing touch.

A special mention to this incredible rug by Rug Culture, who provided all the rugs in the shoot.

Pattern and colour rule in this dining space with some very special pieces… The room divider especially handcrafted by Little Red Industries. Natasha can custom make one for you, and it’s even easy to change up the fabric!

And then there is the original Florence Broadhurst silkscreen, used by Florence herself as a working screen for the Stained Glass design. The actual one. Isn’t that amazing?!

The Entryway

Make an entrance with cool storage solutions and bold home accessories. Jen from Interiors Addict chose this vibrant pink fabric printed onto textural Arizona. This design, Lattice Leaf, was unearthed from the Florence Broadhurst archives and we made it into a handy beach bag. Too gorgeous to shove in a wardrobe!

And the wall art? If wallpaper isn’t an option, cover a frame in our fabric. Or, we can make it for you. This one is in fact acoustic art, with a layer of acoustic polyester infill which is a sound absorber. Functional and visually beautiful.

More incredible acoustic art in a design selected by Jen, Interiors Addict. Perfect for any area where noise negatively effects the soundscape, while adding a visual dimension to the space. The Halftone Clouds design is simple mesmerising.
