While most Melburnians are known to revert back to their all-black uniforms come the colder months, design duo Bonnie Ashley and Neil Downie aren’t afraid of colour – no matter the season. 

Their latest collection, Dandelion, showcases a pared back version of Bonnie and Neil’s signature prints and patterns. Petite, dainty prints include intricate florals, while miniature checks and hand-painted heirloom fruit feature across the line-up of new, cosy homewares.  

‘Think of rest and relaxation, spending time in nature, and sharing special moments at home with loved ones. Dandelion is inspired by life’s simple joys,’ creative director Bonnie Ashley says.

 The new range is made up of super soft linen, handmade scalloped edge cushion trims, woven cotton cushions and napery and woven linen blankets.

The covetable brand is also expanding its selection of vases to include a mix of coloured glazes and different finishes, and introducing new bedding offerings too!

‘Our cushion selection this season includes two new fabrics, a woven check and woven stripe, and a new bolster shape which is the perfect companion,’ Bonnie adds.

 ‘Styling these pieces together makes the ultimate nest for winter warmth!’
