Yesterday I had a trip up to London and popped to my favourite shop, Shaukat, in Old Brompton Road. They have the most amazing range of Liberty prints stacked up in their basement. A proper Aladdin’s Cave!

I bought a length of a favourite of mine, ‘Wendy Woo’ – a beautiful fan design in this subtle colourway. I haven’t counted the number of shades of grey that Liberty have included, but it must be at least 49!

And from the new Spring 2013 range, I picked out a quirky stunner called ‘Gustav and Otto’. It has a blue-black background with tiny brightly coloured creatures nestled into a curly pattern. Liberty say that its ‘curly, spirally patterns [were] inspired by Gustav Klimt’s paintings and blended with sculpted creatures from Otto Wagner’s buildings’ in Vienna.
