Cushions-Sneak Peek!

My cushion test samples are finally made...there are more on the way! I thought I'd share them on the blog today & give you a sneak peek!:)

Canvas Trials

It's official I've outgrown my little studio... it's full of canvases, boxes, tea towels, aprons & lots of quirky product test samples that I'm developing to expand the 'rachaeltaylordesigns' label. It's been hard work, but I'm really enjoying it.

Here are few canvas snapshots of a few product trials I've done recently. Hope you like them... *All of my new products will be added to my online stores soon & will be coming to a stockist near you, so watch this space:)

Trends & Inspiration

Here are a few images taken from the 'Issue 4- Spring Summer' Mudpie trend magazine (I picked up a free sample at Premier Vision, Paris) I've recently been contacted by the lovely, helpful people at Mudpie & I'll be trialing their online trend site next week. For all you trend lovers out there Mudpie are well worth checking out! They produce great inspirational trend books & have a fab trends website also. You can click here for more information on Mudpie ( is the home of their online trendforecasting)They also have a talented design consultancy team

I'm slightly obsessed with the colour orange! I tend to use it a lot in my own designs & products & I have splashes of orange all around my home too, so when I recently opened up the new Heals magazine I was a happy girl:)

I love some of the products featured in the Heals brochure so I thought I'd share them on the blog today incase you havn't managed to see them yet.

Fab Folksy Buys

I'm a new seller to Folksy & I've been really impressed so far as I've found the site really easy & quick to use. I've been checking out a lot of the other sellers on there & there really is some gorgeous stuff! My first Folksy purchase is a lovely handmade jam jar/can wrap by TheCottonPotter who likes to "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.... Handmade from calico cotton - washable wraps / covers for jars, tin cans, bottles and flowerpots; with a multitude of uses: fresh flowers, tea lights, plants, breadsticks, pens, pencils, paintbrushes, rulers, knitting needles, scissors, nail files, make up brushes..........". The beautiful birdy print used on the wrap is by the talented designer Lindsay Atkinson at littlebirdydesigns her online shop is well worth checking out as it's crammed with lots of beautiful goodies.
