Morning guys. It’s Lelanie from of Beauty and Love here. Today I’d like to share some beautiful fabric and colours for summer with you. I found these gorgeous fabrics while on the hunt for Bohemian inspired prints for a friends new shop. These fabrics has such rich prints and textures that I simply couldn’t resist. I thought It would be nice to do a quick shoot so I could share these with you.

The top fabric is actually meant for Shade umbrellas. This geometric print would look super on a patio umbrella, but could look equally good on scatters or as a cover for a patio chair. This hardy fabric will withstand many rubs and is easy to clean.

The dip-dyed muslin on top is so soft to touch. This fabric, with it’s watery hues in Watermelon, Aqua and Browns, would look super as flowy drapes on a wide porch. The fabric is sheer and would allow plenty of natural light to stream in, while providing some shade and respite from the heat.

The fine tribal print at the bottom is called Chobi, and it’s from Stuart Graham. The neutral, sandy background provides a good base for the colour scheme and repeats the natural browns from the sheer Muslin. The delicate pattern adds interest. But I love the Aqua dots. They lift the whole thing and gives it that something special.


This soft, fresh palette is great for Summer. It could look stunning on a Patio, in an informal lounge or even a home office. We will be moving into our new place soon, and I am saving these fabrics for there. I am not quite sure how or where I will be suing them. All I know id that I love this scheme and the combination of prints and patterns.

Pair these fabrics with hand crafted Moroccan inspired objet, like these delicate birds, or other simple accessories. White candles and clear glass jars will add detail without distracting from the fabrics.

What do you think of these? Do you like the colours and the patterns? What accessories would you pair with this collection? 

Have a lovely Monday,

ciao, Lelanie.
