Signature Prints

After missing it when it was first released in cinemas I was lucky enough this weekend to watch the Gillian Armstrong docu-drama "Unfolding Florence: The Many Lives of Florence Broadhurst" - what an amazing, inspiring and creative lady she was! Florence Broadhurst was among other things an Australian designer and businesswoman, but she is probably most well known for establishing Florence Broadhurst Wallpapers. Her hand printed brightly coloured wallpaper designs were sold in Australia and overseas. Her prints have had a major revival in recent years thanks to Signature Prints who own the exclusive world-wide commercial licence to the Florence Broadhurst iconic design library of prints - they have begun re-introducing her original designs to a whole new generation. So today I thought I would take a look at some of my favourite Florence Broadhurst prints and if you are interested you can read more about this amazing designer here.

All images are from the book: Florence Broadhurst - Her Secret & Extraordinary Lives by author Helen O'Neill.
