Rustic simplicity with homespun linen, checks, roses & romantic toiles

Cheerful checks, romantic roses and toiles mixed with rustic linens are the perfect way to brighten things up as the days steadily grow longer and sunnier. I was just about to post this when the doorbell rang, it was the postman delivery a lovely new French quilt, the prettiest tiny toile print in gently faded raspberry on pale cream. It is the top quilt in the photo above. I am thrilled, many thanks to Jo from Hesta and the Pugs.


  1. The check, toile and rose fabrics would look wonderful made into cushion covers and scattered onto a sofa covered with thick linen loose covers.
    The toile screen is stunning! Abby x

  2. You are right Abby, they would make wonderful cushions. I think I may have to try out a prototype!

  3. I have always been a huge fan of red and white. As you said, it is so romantic and easy to live with.
