Last summer, I paired the interior design of Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture with the floral design of The Blue Carrot in a post. I had long admired both and it just felt right to see their work side-by-side as their styles seemed to compliment one another perfectly. I enjoyed writing the post so much that I’m back with a second Pretty Pairing!
The moment I was introduced to Cabbages and Roses, a “quintessentially British brand” of clothing, fabric and house ware, I knew it would pair perfectly with the romantic English garden designs of Jo Flowers. As you’ll see in the mood boards, both brands are keen on a mixture of ultra-feminine florals, beautiful linens and texture-rich furnishing. Jo’s images are magical. An abundance of ruffled blooms gathered into a hand-tied bouquet with gorgeous silk ribbons blowing gently in the morning breeze seem to dance around her linen skirt. Flowering branches, trailing vines and full blown roses stretch from an urn rich with patina. Catch a glimpse of the Cabbage and Roses Lookbooks and you’ll see a similar aesthetic. Raspberry pink rose-covered natural linen frames a window and pools gracefully on the wood floor. A hand-poured candle called Twenty Seven Roses burns on a wooden desk in a study flooded with natural light. Enjoy….
