I’m a bit sad. One of my most gorgeous fabrics has gone out of print and I can’t get any more. I have just enough to make one last 45cm standard lampshade, like the one below. I love this Alexander Henry fabric – it whispers ‘Quincy’ to me. It seems to encapsulate what I’m about – bold, fresh and beautiful. The ornate Japanese Odoriko dancers hold court, floating on a sky blue background, whilst cherry blossom swirls at their feet and golden flowers frame their elegance. If you want it, shout now. Or forever hold your peace.
How can a black lampshade be so brilliant? When it’s adorned with lacquer red and bright white Odoriko dancers, swimming with cherry blossom and glittering gold petals. It works very well indeed here, in a customer’s very lovely dining room.
Surely not? But this is super nice. Black background, littered with gold petals. Serene salmon pink and dark red Japanese Odoriko dancers float among petite cherry blossom. Divine.
