THE HIMALAYA'S COLLECTION - NEW!

After another month spent in the Himalayas, in Rudraprayag,Uttarakhand, doing an intense yoga program, I have been inspired to create the Himalaya's Collection, to celebrate the colours, the smells, the spirituality and purity of this amazing, mystical, and deep part of the world where I seem to return to at least once a year.

The John W. Waterhouse Collection

The John Waterhouse collection came about because of my fondness towards the Lady of Shalott, one of my favourite paintings of all time, displayed at Tate Britain in London.

The intricate design of her skirt, the surroundings, and the depth of colours inspired me to create this pallet.

From the silvery off white to the deep browny blue, I think these hues are historical but fresh and contemporary at the same time, they can be used in various situations and in different mediums, from chalky to gloss.

Somerset

This collection is inspired by Exmoor and the west country, by the beautiful and unspoiled landscape, by the ever changing and moody colours.
I wanted to capture the amalgamation of the browns from the sedges, the mauve from the heathers and the greys from the pebbles along the coast.

Sadhana

Sadhana means self discipline. I have been inspired by Yoga for this collection. Yoga has become part of my daily life.

Urban Chic

Why a grey collection? Because greys are modern, contemporary and stylish, they reflect what is going on now and they can be combined with almost any other hue.

Monsoon Rains

Each year, the monsoon rains flood India during the months of June to September. Aleta Bartel-Orton and Francesca Wezel have created the 'Monsoon Rains' collection with reference to these waters that cleanse, bring life, and shape cultures.
'Monsoon Rains' is the third collection designed to co-ordinate with Aleta's fabrics and wall papers inspired by the Mughal decorative arts of 17th entury northern India.

Indian Summer

Following the success of their "Mughal Spring' collection, Aleta Bartel-Orton and Francesca Wezel created 'Indian Summer' to capture shades of the warm autumn months of a prolonged summer.
Once again, the collection has been designed to co-ordinate with Aleta's range of fabrics and wallpapers, which are inspired by nature and pay tribute to the decorative arts of 17th Century Mughal India.

Mughal Spring

Aleta Bartel-Orton and Francesca Wezel have combined their passion for colour to create ‘Mughal Spring’. Each shade has been carefully created to complement a variety of designs within Aleta’s textile collections for interiors.
Aleta’s prints are born from the meticulously drawn leaves, buds and flowers of the Mughal nature studies from 17th Century India. With these 8 shades, we have tried to capture the fresh, spiritual essence of an exotic spring.
With ‘Mughal Spring’ we pay tribute to the past, but take fresh inspiration from the contemporary blues and greens that are the colours of the moment.

Off White

Why an off white collection? Because these tones are elegant, sophisticated, classical and never out of date.

Miv Watts: The Tin Shack Collection

'To be afraid of colour is to be afraid of life'
Paint it any colour you like, but make it reflect the environment. Let it never be beige or magnolia, because life just isn't beige.
These colours have been inspired by the beautiful Byron Bay hinterland of N.S.W., Australia. They come as a welcome relief to the recent depersonalisation of our homes. Whether a shack, a homestead or a modern townhouse, Australians live closely with their environment, care constantly for its welfare and are acutely aware that what they put in, they get out. This all makes for a confident community.
With this in mind they are not afraid to use colour wherever they can. Both inside and out, the Australian home is a vivid reflection of its natural surroundings.
This palette is a mixture of influences from the brightness of the sparkling bay to the tropical earthiness of the rain forest.
We hope you are inspired to pick up your brush and BE BRAVE!

Namibian Sands

The colours of Namibia are strong, alive, ever changing. Sand, rocks, stony mountains, canyons, and sand dunes. I have been highly inspired by this scenery, and this is the result of that inspiration.

Earth

I was inspired by earthy tones, as I was creating it I was imagining to be in the bush, feeling the land, thinking of the colours there.

Sacla

Combining the Italian heritage and style of Francesca and the Sacla sauces, it seemed a natural step to dream up a food inspired paint collection which would echo the warmth and depth of the Italian experience.

Based on the colours of Norfolk. I sent the colours to Miv Watts, a designer, who came out with the lovely poem, read left to right. www.wattswishedfor.com

Houghton Hall Collection

I was given some 18th Century fabric to match. Through Miv Watts, a Designer, I got to know the people at Houghton Hall and they allowed me to use historical names for the colours. www.wattswishedfor.com

Pale

After the Original Collection I thought that I needed some pale softer hues.

Original

I wanted to be original and so I asked some of my friends what their favourite colours were and so the Collection was born.
