Happy Star smoking blue

Happy Star smoking blue

Happy Star started out as an American quilting design. I found this amazing circle design and painted my version. I liked it but I thought it looked a bit hard and complicated. I took one very small section of the design and started to play around with the placement. The hand painted rendering is what adds the charm, it isn’t computer generated and too accurate so it still has the character. My theory for creating fabric collections is you start with a show stopper fabric then add in a stripe, a spot and a medium scale fabric, this combination always works well together. I try to design collections so you could use all the corresponding fabrics in the room scheme. Most people just buy one fabric for the room which might just be for the curtains or blinds. Really you need to be buying and thinking about fabric for the cushions, headboard, valance and upholstery. I haven’t really followed my theory with Happy Star because it is a mix of a spot and a stripe. The scale is medium to small so it is easy to use almost anywhere in a room scheme.

How to buy
I am officially trade only (that is why I do not show any pricing) and deal with Stockists in the UK and internationally. I do understand that you might not be near a stockist or want to deal with me personally and in this case you can deal with me direct. When you contact a stockist they should be able to sell you just the fabric or wallpaper,  some stockists offer a making up service and it is up to you if you use their services or not.
How long before I get my fabric and wallpaper
All my fabric and wallpaper is printed to order, I do not hold any stock.
The fabric takes about 7 days to get back to me, I check it and then send it 24 hour insured courier to you or your curtain maker.
The wallpaper can take a little longer from 7 to 10 days, it depends how busy the printers are.
It is possible to fast track an order but you would need to email me
