Loyal TDF readers will be familiar with Bonnie and Neil, the Melbourne soft furnishings brand whose locally made textiles and homewares have taken the world by storm! Since launching in 2010, the label has become renowned for its vibrant screen-printed designs, incorporating botanical motifs and bright patterns influenced by nature, and a love of colour.
Dropping today is Bonnie and Neil’s latest collection, Coast. While you can still expect to see the studio’s signature styles, this collection features a stronger focus on hand-painted designs and repeat patterns, including for the first time, wallpaper!
‘We’ve also had a change in colour palette, which embraces 70s colourways and patterns. As a textile designer, I’m excited to be returning to making repeat patterns in wallpaper and yardage designs,’ says co-founder Bonnie Ashley.
Inspired by coastal areas both locally and abroad, products in Coast depict beachside textures and seagrass tone, across detailed graphics.
‘Australia remains one of our sources of influence, with Victoria, Tasmania and Queensland’s coastlines all reflected in this collection,’ Bonnie says. ‘That said, the collection is really influenced by the feelings that coastal living and holidays evoke. There is a noticeable difference in how the seasons impact coastal areas… what textures you experience and how all of this impacts one’s senses.’
The Coast collection includes tableware, cushions, wallpaper, ceramic vases, cards, tea towels, linen throws and artwork and is available now!
