How to re-energise the home in January using William Morris florals

19th January 2023

If you’re anything like us, when all the Christmas glitter and sparkles come down, the home can sometimes feel a little lackluster. Personally we find that what looked minimal in November feels like it needs cheering up amongst the January days. So what can we do to solve it? By injecting some colour and using William Morris florals of course! Whether it’s a quick fix with one of our William Morris tea towels to throw over the sink to cheer it up, a new tablecloth to host dinner parties on, a new cushion for the couch or a larger project such as some new Morris curtains, we’ve got a whole lot of options!

Let’s start with some quick pops of William Morris florals with some kitchenware. His designs are artwork, so we should display them! A tea towel over the sink and an oven glove hung from the oven; stylish and practical!

Moving onto our William Morris tablewear! The table is where everyone sits round daily and chats about their day, so why not make it just a little bit more elevated with our range of William Morris tablecloths and matching napkins and placemats! Our pvc fabric by the half metre is perfect for using as a tablecloth as it won’t fray so you don’t need to hem it! 140cm wide, it’s sold in length by the half metre and is wipe clean.

Craft some accessories! We’ve got lots of crafting ideas using our William Morris fabrics on our blog, go check out our inspiration section to see more ideas. There’s so much you can make from our fabric, including things like a cushion for window seat or sofa to add in some colour and refresh a space with minimal cost, it’s amazing what you can make using half a metre of fabric and what a difference it can make in an area. We always think that little pops of florals around the home bring nature and sunshine indoors and it doesn’t take a lot to do this. Reupholstering using our William Morris fabric is a great way to upcycle what you already have. We’re big fans of reimagining items by giving them a lick of paint and some new upholster, all you’ll need is a spare few hours and a staple gun!

This also works brilliantly on finds from Facebook marketplace and charity shops to upcycle them and make them your own. It’s amazing what you can take that you like the shape of or the design of and reupholster to give it a whole new lease of life and make it fit your space and style.

There’s also some larger projects you can do, including making blinds and curtains from our licensed Morris fabrics. We’ve got a lot of designs that we print in the UK, all licensed William Morris fabrics. We’d reccomend our heavyweight fabric for curtains, if you’d like a sample we send free samples within the UK, please just send us a message with your name and design and we’ll sort that out for you.

Breathing new life into the home isn’t just for January either, we love florals and colour in the home year-round. The great thing about them is that they’re all tips and tricks that can be rotated throughout the year. And there you have it, easy ways to incorporate some William Morris florals into your home! Be sure to tag us in your photos if you use any of our tips!

All our fabrics are printed and products manufactured in the United Kingdom and are all licensed William Morris designs that are printed both size and colour wise to our own specifications.

🌷 William Morris month day 30 🌷 As we come near the end of Morris month, we’re celebrating with a fabric stack, full of beautiful licensed designs, which is your fave? 🌿 “Remember that a pattern is either right or wrong. It cannot be forgiven for blundering, as a picture may be which has otherwise great qualities in it. It is with a pattern as with a fortress, it is no stronger than its weakest point.”- William Morris 🤍

🌿 William Morris Day 20 🌿 William Morris fact of the day; did you know he founded the Kelmscott Press? 🖋️ He wrote of the venture – “Here is a new craft to conquer and to perfect.” Printing began at the press in Spring 1891 🪴 He designed multiple fonts including “Golden” Roman typeface and “Troy” Gothic type along with “Chaucer” and he worked to create beautiful books in regards to their designs which took into account their type, image and decorative elements – you can see beautiful examples of what he achieved today if you do a quick search on the Kelmscott Press- it’s well worth a Google! 🌷
