Madam Birdie (full green)

Madam Birdie (full green)

I love fabrics with little birds and I always think they look so pretty in a room. I am sure birds on fabric have to be the most popular subject for fabric design, I find it very hard to steer away from them probably because they give you that lovely natural flowing feeling which you need for a pattern repeat. They are all around us so why not have them printed on our curtains and cushions. The idea for the little bird on the Madam Birdie design was from ceramics I found at the Bowes museum in County Durham. Quite often I will visit a museum and I take lots of photos and use them as a reference at a later date. I remember first sketching this design while I was sitting in a hospital room waiting for my son to recover from an operation after breaking his leg. I always take a little sketch book with me if I think I am going to have lots of time to kill, I look at the photos on my phone and then start drawing.

How to Buy & Samples

Samples
Please email me if you would like samples, I can send a maximum of 6 printed fabric, 3 wallpaper and 3 plain fabrics.
I can’t send samples to students at the moment.  If you are an interior design professional and need more samples please email me to discuss your requirements. I can only send samples if I am given a specific list of fabric names and colours I cannot send out general selections.
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 

Design Help

I understand it is confusing trying to find fabrics and wallpapers to suite your projects. There is a great deal of choice out there and it can all get very overwhelming. I am NOT an interior designer but if you can send me photos of the project you are trying to decorate or indicated which fabrics you might like, I might be able to help you. When you email me I won’t know you or your taste, I can’t do Mystic Meg virtual interior design via email so as much information about what you are trying to achieve would be helpful.
