Florence Broadhurst - simply devine

Today I have come face to face, for what I believe the be the first time, of the works of Australian designer & decorator, the late Florence Broadhurst.

Her patterns are self described as “vigorous designs for modern living” signified by large, bold, contrasting-coloured prints, inspired by elements of nature such as birds, horses, art deco geometrics, flowing foliage and floral motifs.

Her designs are simply devine and I am now searching all over the internet for them and at the moment her designs are being featured by Kate Spade's entire 2012 collection.

Her death (murder)  in 1977 is still shrouded in mystery and makes for interesting reading.
