The White House blue

The White House blue

These designs started as rather an experiment and were then put away into the depths of my filing system. I had done a mock up photo and added it to Instagram and this was found by quite a few people who started to ask for a sample. The photo I had added was a digital mock up so not the real thing! I decided to go ahead and have some samples printed, they arrived and I hung them up in my studio as I always do with samples just to get used to them and see what they look like from a distance. I wasn’t too sure and thought they might be too colourful so I hide them under my table. A week later I have three lots of people coming to see me for decorating advice and to look at my fabrics. Both of them found the samples and loved them! I showed my twin sister who is always very honest when it comes to my designs and she loved them too! I thought Oh well I might as well carry on with these designs and decided to make a mini summer collection out of them. Some of them were meant to go with the next collection I have coming out but I had too many patterns in this collection so that is one reason why they weren’t included. It always amazes me how I work out what to include and what not!

Stockists
We do have a list of stockists around the UK and Internationally who will be able to sell you fabrics and wallpapers direct.
Quite a few of them are interiors designers and they might not mention they sell interiors fabrics so you do need to email or ring them and they will be able to help you.
Direct from Charlotte Gaisford
If you do not want to deal direct with a stockist it is possible to buy direct from Charlotte Gaisford just send us an email with your requirements. Because we sell mainly through the trade and internationally we do not make prices public on the website

How long before I get my fabric and wallpaper
All the fabric and wallpaper is printed to order, we do not hold any stock.
The fabric takes about 7 days to get back from the printers, we check it and then send it 24 hour 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. The lead times can be longer if the printers are busy, this is usually in the Autumn.
