Celadon by Umbrella prints

This colour could not be anymore gentle and peaceful... whenever I'm amping up and stressing out Carly pulls out a piece of this fabric and I feel all better. I could meditate on our new colour Celadon forever and I've been waiting to see this colour in print for so long (in another life I sold Japanese ceramics in celadon and beautiful dark brown tenmokku glazes) and now it is here brought to you in the curvy shape of our Hearts fabric.

The ancient Chinese translucent pottery glaze is elegant, mysterious, watery and quiet. A colour once described by Chinese artisans as 'beyond description'.


  1. Ooh I really like the chair you've used in the photos. I hope we see some sweet little nests built in our trees this year - I just have to work out how to keep the neighbourhood cats out of our yard.

  2. that is beautiful and I love the chair (and the toes) as well.
    Isn't if funny how some colours make you breath out more deeply...

  3. I completely relate to the celadan and tenmoku love.

    They are two of my favourites too.

  4. Beautiful colour and yes very calming for the eyes and mind. Beautiful photos too x
