English meadows and gardens have all inspired Emily Burningham’s beautifully designed and coloured collection of greeting cards and stationery, which have been printed and manufactured in the UK.
Emily attributes her style to a variety of influences:
Japan, with its fascinating culture and history has a strong influence on her designs. The boldness, simplicity and use of colour in Japanese textiles have inspired a great deal of her work. Design of the 1920’s and 1930’s is perhaps the other greatest resource for her patterns.
English and French textiles from the turn of the century, ceramics, furniture and design of the Arts and Crafts movement have inspired designs.
Also, the traditional flowers of an English Garden in summer with an abundance of Hollyhocks, Roses, Delphiniums, Lupins and Foxgloves and an array of visiting insects is a happy, comforting place for Emily to be.
Emily finds many rich and wonderful sources of visual information; the difficulty is finding the time to explore them all!’’
