When we saw the artwork, it was love at first sight. As a designer (or a shopper), you know that initial moment when you see something and it takes your breath away? Well, the hand-painted oversized blooms that inspired our Rustic Rose Sateen Bedding did just that. We were perusing a local art show, looking for inspiration, when we saw these large-scale roses painted in vibrant colors. This original art was painted in the Lake Como region of Italy — it just doesn’t get any more romantic than that!
Usually we play with the scale and recolor artwork when we acquire it, but this print was so beautiful, we just needed to tweak the colors so you could coordinate with the other bedding in our collection. It was just meant to be! The neutral hue of the ground gives the vibrant shades in the petals their added punch. Roses are iconic, but this large-scale rendition in vivid shades makes it new again. It’s our take on relaxed America, the floral trend. And it’s a fresh pick for Fall 2014.
