But some aspects of life are best when swathed in a kaleidoscope of geometric hues.
So bid adieu to block colour, roll up your sleeves and enter Signature Prints’ exquisite world of swoon-worthy print.
If you’re a fiend for fabulous interior design, their 90-minute studio tours are like a jaunt though Wonka’s chocolate factory – except you won’t be sucked up an extraction pipe for daring to get interactive. What you will get is an insider’s peek into the printing process, a run-down of their humble beginnings and a hands-on dip into their hue mixing and custom colors.
And who better to traipse around with than the late flamboyant Australian Florence Broadhurst?
The lady behind some of the boldest artistic expressions, Florence was a young performer in Shanghai, a European fashion designer and a household Australian name with her iconic luxe wallpapers and artworks.
You can hear more about this creative powerhouse in the ‘Back to Basics’ workshop (19th October) including three guest speakers – Paulene Graham (original Florence Broadhurst printer), Helen O’Neill (author of ‘Florence Broadhurst: her secret and extraordinary lives’ biography) and Helen Lennie (Co-Owner of Signature Prints) who will share their experiences and integral parts into the Florence Broadhurst journey.
For an instant infusion of her artwork into your home, Signature prints has teamed up with Circa Home to launch new range of natural, Australian-made fragrances to give your abode a brush with Broadhurst’s ‘20s Shanghai splendour, her exuberantly Parisian Madame Pellier, the heady tropicana of her ’49 art tour and the opulence of her 1967 studio – each of the icon’s incarnations bottled up as candles and home-captivating scents.
Life’s prettier in print.
