I recently discovered the work of Vanessa Arbuthnott, a very talented designer. I only wish I had the home to compliment her beautiful creations. Thinking that some of you might, I thought I would introduce you. Vanessa started her business ten years ago with an idea, a few samples and her trusty pinking sheers. She had four active children and a loyal team to support her business goals.
The Cotswold countryside is where she lives and serves as inspiration for her designs. She has nine collections, each sounding better than the last, Hand Printed, Meadow, Earth, Cockerel, Wildflower, Seaside, Garden, Woodland and Sky. With this she adds her signature colours...teal, pidgeon, spinach, buttercup, limestone, clay, damson, duck egg, stone, raspberry, mushroom, cornflower, straw and lettuce. It all sounds as good as it looks.
I think the rest speaks for itself.
It warms my heart to see women move forward with an idea and make it happen. I think Vanessa has done that in spades. My hat goes off to her. :)
