A Refreshing Palette: Robert Allen @HOME Spring 2019

Spring is officially here and with it comes a new, refreshing palette from Robert Allen @HOME.  The names of the fabrics evoke a northern European aesthetic blended with inspiration from Japanese modernity.  Large scale prints capture our attention while smaller scale prints, jacquards and embroidery add a layer of texture and visual interest.  The collection seems tailor-made for a relaxing master suite or casually elegant dining or living space.
Asawa Block (above left) in a serene blush hue called Dawn and Eldbjorg (above right) in colour Lakeside are perfect on a chair or as accent cushions.
Baltic Pagoda in Lakeside (above) steals the show with its beautiful watercolour effect and timeless Chinoiserie motif.  This slubbed-cotton print would be perfect as drapes framing a grand window.  Touches of lilac and golden yellow expand the palette providing more options for coordination.
Asawa Block (above left) in Dusk is a cool grey hue with the relaxed feel of a worn-in pair of jeans.  Klimt Gilding (above right) in Dawn is a linen-look fabric with a sophisticated geometric embroidered motif.  Rose-gold metallic embroidery in the centre of the motifs provides a touch of glamour and play in the centre of the motifs.
Rosemaling (above) is named for a traditional form of Norwegian folk art.  The soft green background of the Grassland colourway blends beautifully with the varied green, blue and yellow highlights of the leaves.  The vine pattern evokes traditional Jacobean styles, but the simple leaf motif and the soft, analogous colour scheme make it truly modern.
If you’re looking for a little more drama, Rosemaling in colour Lakeside (above left) is a beautiful option.  The colours in the leaves are similar to the Grassland colourway, with the addition of a sophisticated touch of mauve, but the deeper cool grey background provides a dramatic contrast.  Hicks Weave BK (above right) in colour Dawn highlights the continuing use of blush tones as an alternative neutral in modern home décor.
The fabrics shown above are some of the highlights of the collection.  A visit to Fabricana Home will provide even more options to bring this refreshing palette into your home.
