Deconstructing a Still Life #3

This still evokes memories of Japan. Bringing to mind Japanese firemen wearing heavily quilted and indigo woven jackets and helmet hats. It is easy to become thoroughly distracted walking through the streets by brightly coloured streamers, floating decorations and gardens planted so deliberately seasonally.

Bring the colours of your adventures alive: the inky depths of indigo dyes, patched boro & intricate shibori in your range of blues, the neutrals of rice paper & bamboo. The rich reds that stand out in Japanese temples, fire buckets and ceremonies. It creates a classic palette.

A large handmade vintage linen flag, red and blue porcelain fortune cookies, a velvet or swarm cushion and our blackened shield hook are some of our picks to bring the palette from this still into your home.
