And here is the piece of fabric I mentioned earlier in this thread.  I think he said it was called Sand, though I could be wrong.  How strange that my mum bought this in San Francisco, brought it back to Cullen then met the person who designed it and now we live in his former home! Small world.  ;D

Steve
Just spoke to Dad. He would consider selling his original designs in order to see them printed as he always see them as fabrics not a flat drawing.  He is curious as to how you print. Is it screen or another medium.
Please contact if interested.

Thanks, for posting the picture it is great to see. Are you related to the Whitelaw from Glasgow, they had a daughter Janet that died in her 20's.

No idea re the person from Glasgow. That side of my family were from Larkhall and my great grandfather had 23 kids(!) so I probably have a lot of distant relations.

I stumbled across this post & wonder if it is still active?

I adore my Blitz fabric curtains & headboard & wanted to find out more about Peter Perritt. It has been great to find out more in this thread.

I am particularly interested to know if there is any way I can view any of his portfolio works? Also, was anyone able to discuss reprints or fresh prints of his beautiful works?

Keeping my fingers crossed 🤞🏼 I do so LOVE his fabric prints.

We are currently trying to find some (orange) duvets to go with the headboard pictured :)

Welcome to rootschat. The place to come for interior design advice.  ;D

Can't help with your quest for more Peter Perritt designs, but have you considered one of the other colours (other than orange) from the headboard for your duvet? It's difficult to see the exact colours, but the brown in particular might make the headboard the feature and provide some contrast? Just a suggestion.

My daughter would kill for some of these prints. Does anyone know of any fabric suppliers? (preferably in Australia but would consider buying from elsewhere)?  :-\

Scruffydave, did your company end up printing any of these designs?

Thanks Ruskie - I've been looking at any of the colours that are in the design...preferably orange & pink, but I'm open to brown, too. Finding the right tone & saturation of hue is tough 🙈

Search continues!

The fabric is amazing - I would love to find more :) It would be wonderful if someone can reprint some of his designs - I know lots of people who would be interested.

Good luck in your hunt!
