DESIGNER HELEN ROUND INTRODUCES HER FIRST CHRISTMAS COLLECTION
Inspired by classic winter foliage and a touch of seasonal magic. Cornish Designer Maker Helen Round is delighted to introduce her Christmas Collection. This is the first time Helen has designed a festive range and she hopes it will become a firm favourite, adding to her popular collection of hand- printed, linen homeware products.
Never one for reindeer, snowmen or other stylised Christmas icons, Helen took inspiration from Mount Edgcumbe Country Park near to her shop and studio. “I love to go on a wintery walk, in search of holly and ivy, returning home to entwine them with little sparkly lights, placing above doorways and on table tops. This for me is Christmas.” says Helen.
The stunning collection features this same classic winter foliage, hand-printed onto Helen’s signature homeware products, including her ever popular kitchen linens and beautifully hand crafted accessories; all made in her Cornish studio using ethically sourced materials.
Helen added; “Christmas for me signifies a time for family, for getting together with friends who I often haven’t had much time to catch up with in the year, a time for cooking and of course feast- ing!
“When I sat down to design the collection, I started to really think about how I could evoke the magic of this holiday time with a screen printed design for our linen products.
“Christmas is a time for decoration. I love filling the house with twists of holly, ivy, twinkly lights and a sprig of mistletoe. The fresh smell of cut greenery is one that seems uniquely reserved for this special time of year. Traditionally used at Christmas time they signify the changing of season and coming of Spring.”
