Check out how gorgeous Molly Mahon’s printed designs for Schumacher are above.
This is from a lunch event I attended at her Sussex home, at the invitation of Schumacher a few days ago.
I still remember saving a bedroom instagram photo styled in Schumacher textiles featuring Molly Mahon’s block printing.
It’s not often that I save images on Instagram, unless it’s something that I’m really inspired by or want to buy.If you are new to Schumacher, then let me introduce you to them.
They are an iconic American design house, since 1889, behind the most beautiful luxury interior textiles, wall coverings and trimmings.
With clients from President Roosevelt, to Jackie Kennedy, Mick Jagger and more. Their history reads like a Who’s who book.
I was excited when I found out that Schumacher has now come to the U.K, under the watch of their new U.K and European CEO Benni Frowein, who I had the pleasure of meeting.
What I love about this brand is how they innovate, always with a finger on the trends pulse, as evident from their beautiful monthly collections.
They are experts at mixing and matching colours and patterns, no matter how bold, they always work harmoniously.
Here’s Molly’s cosy kitchen, complete with Aga, featuring the strawberry printed fabric she recently did for Schumacher.
As you can see, we had the most amazing lunch too.
Aren’t those block printed scallop borders lining her shelves just so cute?This table cloth is one of my favourite prints from Molly’s collection for Schumacher. It’s called Trellis in sky, indigo and grass.Molly kindly let me roam her cute cottage to snap photos.
I love how there’s such a relaxed vibe in her home, filled with happy colours. There’s a mix of old with new, and really embraces that Cottagecore trend that is so popular at the moment.
I spot the trellis print in pink on her ottoman.
The fabric on the sofa to the right is Schumacher’s Luna, and the little armchair is in Pattee.
The block prints on her fireplace really gives it a unique twist don’t you think? Her oil paintings are stunning too. I’ll need to message her to find out who the artists are.Ahh, a pink sofa, a girl after my own heart. I can see Molly loves pink as much as I do. What a comfortable looking sofa she has.
The floral cushions on either end are the ones she did for Schumacher in the Dianthus hand block print.This is one of my favourite corners of Molly’s house because it has a quirky cool vibe, feels personal and just exuberates warmth and a relaxed happiness.
I need that blue Alfred Newell Bobbin console, so beautiful.
Again, you can see her strawberries block print in the fabric of her lamp shade.How adorable is the little skirt design over the shade. Schumacher do wall coverings too. The wallpaper is Lani in gold.Here’s the main bathroom of the house. That combination of that deep lilac pink and blue is so beautiful isn’t it?The wallpaper is Coral in blue. The chair in Berry hand block prints. Here’s another great pink blue combination. The wallpaper is Marigold.The headboard in Molly’s daughter’s bedroom has been upholstered in Schumacher’s Luna block print fabric, and the wallpaper is called Leaf.
Here’s little view of one end of Molly’s workspace.and another creative corner.Here’s an aerial view of some of the blocks Molly uses to design her prints, and also for her block printing workshops.Talking about workshops, I got the chance to try out my own block printing on a fabric tote.Here are some of our creations from the press day. Can you spot mine? It’s behind the sofa and has pink shells on it.
Alas, it’s not as beautiful as the print designs that Molly create, but nonetheless it was so fun to do. I call it my imperfect perfect tote bag.
Hope you have enjoyed the post. Do take a look at the beautiful world of Schumacher online.
If you want to see the samples in real life, then they also have a studio space at the Chelsea Design Centre in south London.
I’m feeling inspired now to Schumacher my home, so watch this space.
Have a beautiful day all. x
