Shake off those Winter blues
No…it’s not just you, it’s freezing! Well, by Sydney standards it is! But whilst the temperature might be close to freezing this time of year, the hot news in the local design world is a brand-new season of fabrics with the highly anticipated release of Warwick Fabrics new collections. So, thanks to my friends from Warwick, here’s a summary of the collections, and some of the inspiration behind them.
In Warwick’s own words, “be inspired by the playful prints, Batik weaves, tactile textures, painterly designs and captivating colours of our new collections! With such a wide range of contemporary and traditional aesthetics on offer, there is something to suit everyone’s sense of style”
TEMPTING TACTILE TEXTURE with TOSCANO
A bold collection that offers a captivating fusion of traditional and contemporary. Mix and match with a selection of carefully curated designs, from a classic Rococo Era inspired damask and ethnic Batik to zig zag geometrics and chunky textured plains. Boasting a beautiful vintage aesthetic that will add charm and personality to modern interiors, TOSCANO’s contemporary colour palette and transitional designs exhibit effortless style with a unique urban twist, while a thick tactile finish will bring a relaxed mood that is perfect for rustic and textured upholstery.
RETRO REVIVAL with NOLAN
NOLAN is a colourful and retro collection, inspired by retro fashion and textiles. It offers a refreshing aesthetic with a distinctive fusion of texture and pattern.

TRADITION WITH A MODERN TWIST with BIANCA
Inspired by, “the shape and movement of traditional Batik textiles”, BIANCA’s modern watercolour effect offers a contemporary twist on classic design style. With a charming aesthetic that is eclectic and unique, BIANCA is an Australian made sophisticated collection. Featuring dry woven textures and a selection of painterly designs, this multi-tonal collection is fresh and modern with a heritage feel, making it the perfect fabric for transitional interiors.
