Until I started thinking about this blog, I had no idea quite how popular hares had become.  See below a wonderful selection of whimsical designs.  This is a modern rustic look in fresh, leafy greens and warm, earthy tones.

 Red March Hares

 Dashing Red March Hares give playful touch to a country scheme.  Particularly suitable in a kitchen, study, nursery or cloakroom.  Several other colours available.

I have just come across an interesting website called Peony & Sage.  They sell a great selection of fabrics and accessories in pastels and florals, including this fabulous Hare print.

Their Fudge Hare Cushion is beautifully handmade, piped and finished with covered buttons.  Available with or without a feather pad.  £39.95-£49.95


 Also from Peony & Sage, these lovely lavender filled bunnies have matching gingham and button collars and come in a variety of colours.  Would make great alternative Easter gift.  £9.95 each

drum shade 

For a nature loving child’s bedroom these Drum Shades in Mini Hares are just perfect.  They are available in large and small sizes and in a great selection of colours.  They are made by Lolly and Boo and you need to contact Louise at this website if you would like to order one.

I recently came across a great website called Thornback & Peel.  They sell a wonderful selection of intricate screen printed pieces for the home. These include cushions, deck chairs, aprons and lampshades and I just love this cream cotton cushion with chocolate brown rabbits and green cabbages.  Their designs are inspired by artistic traditions from Mrs Beeton’s household management to Mr McGregor’s garden.

Then, flicking through Country Living Magazine I noticed a picture of the chair below, and read that Thornback & Peel have recently collaborated with ‘the design lab’ at Sofa.com.  A small, exclusive range of their fabrics is available to order on all sofa.com products. I think this chair is fabulous and would sit perfectly in a corner of the kitchen.
