If you’ve read any of my previous posts on Scion’s first Melinki collection of fabrics and wallpapers, and their subsequent rug designs, then you’ll know I’m a fan of this new British brand, with its great colour combinations and fresh patterns.
Now Scion‘s second collection has been launched; named Wabi Sabi, the fabrics and wallpapers are inspired by traditional dyeing / production methods including block printing, batik, ikat, and tie-dye. The result: a collection that features a mix of patterns from abstract and geometric to floral, all with a relaxed, informal feel.
Whilst, of course, each design comes in many different colourways, it’s these blue and white ones, with their inky, indigo tones (and, for those who prefer a lighter blue, tones of turquoise and aqua) that caught my eye:
I Iove the simple spot motif of the Isamu fabric, layered underneath the more angular geometric Loop design (don’t miss the subtle Loop wallpaper on the walls)…

Working with bold patterns doesn’t have to be overwhelming: here the Shibori wallpaper flatters and emphasises the architectural lines of the stairwell:
Wabi Sabi printed fabrics are from £26 a metre; wallpapers are £32 a roll, all available in the UK and internationally from March 2013 from Scion.
