Tropical Breeze

19th July 2016

It is hot hot hot here in the studio today. Fan on, windows open and doors wide. So we thought we’d bring you something a little tropical. There is a definite trend for exotic prints at the moment, that 1950s favourite can be found on anything from wallpaper to cake. Sun is so fleeting in England – you have to celebrate the summer while you can! Enjoy.
