NEW! Curio & Curio S/S 2015 Collection

curio-and-curio-1I’m dropping in from Mauritius to share the suitably bright and exotic new Spring/Summer 2015 collection from interiors brand, Curio & Curio. Obviously I love colour and pattern so it’s no surprise that these geometric shapes and vibrant shades instantly caught my eye. However, as I write looking out over the Indian Ocean I can’t help but think that this new range would be ideal for bringing a slice of my exotic escape back home. To me the designs reflect the senses of being by the ocean: the colours of the sun, sand and sea are all front and centre, and I love it!curio-and-curio-2curio-and-curio-3Curio & Curio was established in Australia by UK-born husband and wife team Clair Wayman and Nick Young, who moved back to England last year to continue the brand in their home country. They make an ideal team as Clair studied textile design, painting and print-making at university before she turned to interior styling. Clair worked for UK magazines such as Living Etc and BBC Good Homes before relocating to Australia and joining the Real Living magazine team (which is my favourite interiors magazine in the world – it’s incredible!) as their Melbourne style editor and then moving into interior decoration. While her partner, Nick, is an illustrator helps to design the vibrant cocktail of homewares.curio-and-curio-4curio-and-curio-5 As winter in full swing back in the UK it’s been wonderful to have the opportunity to remember what it feels like to have the sun beating down on you here in Mauritius, and this collection perfectly encompasses that feeling. With fun, fresh colours, playful characters and contemporary hand-drawn geometrics, the range feels confident, exciting and invigorating. Bring on summer, I say!curio-and-curio-6curio-and-curio-7 The Wigwam cushions in mint and yellow are two of my favourite pillows from the range, and the ice cream, parrot and pineapple art prints really do make me smile! Which pieces are catching your eye, folks?curio-and-curio-8

    Totally agree. Curio&Curio is great for colour. I spotted them last year at Tent London. Loving their use of yellow and green.

    These are fantastic, but I have to ask, where is that gorgeous rug from?!

    I need it in my house now.

    It’s so wonderful to read these enthusiastic comments! @Sian – the rug is from Armadillo – an Australian rug company, but Northwood Home is now selling them in the Islington London area Xx
