 Goldcrest Wallpaper Designer UK Birds – Great British Indigenous Collection

When it comes to choosing what birds need to be in the collection, I always try and look close to home. Gold crests are one of my favourite birds, and I love going for long country walks and seeing them with the other small birds. Especially has I now have so many fields behind the house.  The Gold crest design includes Goldcrest fabric, Goldcrest wallpaper, Goldcrest lampshades, Goldcrest cushions and plant pots.

Upcycling Designer Fabric UK Handmade Bespoke Prints Interior Design

We have noticed an upsurge in the past 2-3- years for sales to individuals working from their home studio, or taking reupholstery lessons and working hard to upcycle vintage, old and shabby furniture. Upcycling is also considered kind to the environment as a form of ‘pass it on’ recycling – often a beloved Granny’s chair will be stripped down to the bare wood frame, strenghtened, varnished, nurtered and replacement springs fitted. Then there’s the chance to add new padding for a cusioned seat and to use new 21st century superior quality fabric to whizz the furniture bang up to date.

Often these busy crafters will combine two or more home furnishings to be recovered, reupholstered and upcycled all in the same design print – remember all orders of over £75 are shipped FREE in the UK.

Goldcrest Flock of Birds – UK Handmade Fabric Bespoke Handmade 6 Designs

Gold crests group together in flocks of other small birds during winter and autumn, so I have drawn 6 different birds in the design. They can often be found in coniferous woodland or parks with large mature trees. They arrive in the British east coast from Scandanavia in the autumn, and make their way across dunes to a suitable habitat. Gold crests are common all around the UK, and you can see them all year round!


Goldcrest – The Smallest Bird in the UK

My dad is lucky enough to have Gold crests visit him in the garden. Although they are tiny and sometimes hard to see, they bring real joy! The Gold crest is the smallest bird in the UK.

They have tiny thin beaks, ideal for picking insects out from between pine needles.
