I'm not really a domestic goddess; my house is actually a mess right now as I am busy preparing for my new fabrics launch next Tuesday evening. I have been shooting the fabrics in my studio and this photo came about purely by accident when Emily commented how cool it looked. I was ironing out the centre fold line and it reminded us of a 50's housewife. Can't you just imagine her pressing her curtains to perfection?
Hubby installed a curtain rod on my back wall and with the help of crocodile clips, I was able to quickly hang up the different fabrics to photograph in their entirety. My studio is located in an industrial unit so there was plenty of natural light once we opened the high roller-door all the way.
This is my pineapples design now printed on organic cotton twill. I would love this in my kitchen! I have custom-mixed this colour myself and have named it "Sunripe Yellow". Do you like that name? The yellow we used for the striped fabric is being called "Lemon Sorbet" courtesy of Melissa Healy of Futari Design who suggested it. I love coming up with names for colours - it's one of the fun parts of my job.
