With the run up to the new collection launch in July 2017 at Harrogate Home and Gift, we look back at some of our favourite designs and see how the idea initially started and how the colours have developed.
Lorna’s Broom and Bee design is a reflection of the changing seasons of the British countryside, from bright summer days to clear dusk nights. Buy your Broom and Bee products here. Spend over £75 for FREE UK DELIVERY – questions? Send a message via my Contact Form.
Today we look at the Broom and Bee design within the Bloom collection. This design started in Cornwall, when Lorna went on a trip to the Eden Project. She loved the broom outside of the greenhouses because it represents the late days of spring, when the broom plant is in full bloom.
The photographs she took inspired the bright yellow flowers sitting beautifully against the crisp blue sky which developed into the ‘Sky’ colourway.
The ‘Dusk’ colourway reflects the summer sun setting and the broom blends into the British nightfall. The hovering bees in the design contrast against the design in both colours and gives an extra depth. Get your Broom and Bee Dusk cushion here

Some of my designs are classic but the majority are contemporary wallpaper designs, but my aspiration was always to be a British wallpaper designer, to be inspired by the British countryside and to print in the UK.

According to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, there has been a huge decrease in the amount of bees due to changes in agricultural demand and technology. This means there are less bees and we can see this in our British countryside, there has been a 97% loss of flower-rich grassland since the 1930s.
