Dandelion o’clock

February 16, 2010

Are you a fan of Sanderson‘s retro Dandelion Clocks design? Uh huh? WELL, have we got a treat for you today! Check out this fabulous rug from the new collection at John Lewis – it’s shot here with a Content by Conran Matador chair in ‘Caterpillar’ green and it looks so good I could literally LICK it:

Mmmmm. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, ladies and gentlemen, let me spit out the fluff and introduce…(drum roll)…the Dandelion Clocks roller blind, complete with co-ordinating coloured Eames chairs. Hurrah!

(The blind’s also from John Lewis.) This pattern has been incredibly popular since it launched in Spring last year and it’s interesting to see how many different ways it’s been used – it’s one of those designs that works well in so many schemes. Check out this bedroom from Ideal Home:

Dandelion Clocks looks fab on a feature wall behind the headboard, and it sits nicely with the exposed brickwork, too. This next ranch-style bedroom is from interior designer Lori Andrews who went for the tangerine and charcoal version. Lovely!

And here are some pics courtesy of Sanderson and The Home Show:

I’m considering this wallpaper for our dining room (although I’ve done about six moodboards for it already and keep changing my mind!) – and I think it would look fabulous with IKEA’s Makros dandelion light fitting. – Ellie

    I bought the turquoise/yellow wallpaper but now I think I prefer the tangerine which I hadn’t seen in-situ before – looks amazing.

    I love this wallpaper, it will be going in our living room when we get round to decorating, I must have those matching mugs too now I have seen them. All the pictures look so good and will give me lots of inspiration.

    No, no, no! You’ve done it again. I now need to redecorate so I can have the wallpaper and those gorgeous chairs but only just finished decorating. Only one thing for it…buy a bigger house.

    I was thinking exactly the same about the IKEA Makros light before i read your article. Definitely going to purchase both now.
