DESIGN THERAPY: Clare Nicolson

Clare Nicolson is a Scottish textile designer using vintage images for inspiration to create the most beautiful cushions, tea towels, little birds and more. Her work is nostalgic, cute and colourful. By digitally printing her designs onto silk and cottons she creates delicate florals, patterns and images of birds. Her website is the CUTEST, with twittering birdsong and cockerel crows to accompany your browsing.

"Designs for clare nicolson textiles are taken from paper collages which she creates using decorative papers and packaging. Inspiration for collages can come from almost anything; an old teapot, a walk in the country, even the birds in her garden. Pattern is an integral part of the textiles. Layering pattern on pattern, designs develop as each new paper is uncovered. "- via Clare Nicolson
