If you’ve been away the past couple of weeks and just returned, you might be forgiven for thinking the world as you knew it once, has gone topsy-turvy! Well, you might be right, but here at Grand Illusions it’s been business as usual.  

As ever, the show must go on – or to be more accurate, preparations for the autumn shows in Birmingham and London! They’ll be here before we know it for sure. In addition we’ve just started to shoot our new catalogue for Autumn/Winter, which is a bit of a marathon in itself.

One of the stars of the new Autumn collection will be these gorgeous delft-like patterned pots, only this time, they are in a beautiful green colourway and we know that they will be very popular given the huge response the blue and black varieties have received.

Also rather wonderful are the new faux flowers for next season – these stunning red roses are incredibly realistic and truly are a beautiful deep red – just one of the new blooms coming your way soon.

May we be the first to say ‘Happy Holidays!’. Now where’sthat old deckchair I was looking for… I think it needs a lick of paint – Vintage Paint of course!
