INSPIRATION: Behind the Temple Water Design
Launched in August 2018, the joyful Temple Water print joins the Lough Cuan Collection and brings a smaller scale floral and nature inspired print to the collection. It is currently available in one colourway and is inspired by the colour of the Springtime damsel flies which surrounded the man-made lake known as 'Temple Water'. The pattern brings together elements of April's illustrations, combined with watery watercolour washes from her sketchbook.
This print is available as cushions, fabric by the metre, linen plant pot covers and cosmetic bags.
Temple Water is a man-made lake situated in the Castle Ward Estate on the southern shores of Strangford Lough, County Down, Northern Ireland. Work on the lake was completed in the late 17th Century and includes a hidden temple perched high above the lake that gives wonderful views across the estate and Strangford Lough itself.
This pattern was inspired by the abundance of wildlife which surround the lake, including vibrant azure and turquoise damselflies. These little flashes of colour inspired the colour palette for the pattern.
The Temple Water pattern is designed to sit within a contemporary joyful room with lots of life and colour. We wanted to reflect the personality of a homeowner; someone who loves contemporary design, nature themes and isn't afraid of colour. We say 'Banish the Beige'!
