Inspired by: Florence Broadhurst

This quintessential Queen of fabric & wallpaper is one Australian worth knowing (relax, my fellow Antipodeans, of course I am joking.)  Florence was truly an innovative artist & an amazing inspiration.  Her signature look is so that you can spot a ‘Broadhurst’ in an instance.  Her life & death is as intriguing as her beautiful body of work.  Her colourful life culminated in her own demise in a (still) unsolved brutal murder mystery.  Whether it’s a feature wall in one of her incredible paper coverings or a cushion decorated in a flourish of her fabric – the below clearly demonstrates that the style, flair & legacy of this doyenne of design lives on.

In memory of Florence Broadhurst
July 1899 – October 1977
