Florence Broadhurst

This remarkable Australian woman, most famous now for her wallpaper designs, is the subject of the Gillian Armstrong film, Unfolding Florence, which is on SBS TV (in Australia) this weekend (if you're not in Oz, it's probably available on DVD).

For a squizz at her stylish work, there's a slideshow here. Signature Prints, who own the design library of her work, have a bio of her here, and there's a book, available in Australia, UK and the US. The Signature Prints website also has images of the wallpaper and fabric designs available.

(Prices are Not Cheap: but there's inspiration in just looking at these designs. Some float my boat utterly, while others are too sixties for me. But you should take a look and see what catches your imagination).
