Talented designer Amanda Perkins has just released a dose of sunshine to warm our hearts through winter. Her beautiful Cote de Lynmouth kaleidoscope blanket sparkles in turquoise, vibrant yellows and seaglass green, and was inspired by holidays she spent in the south of France on the Cote d’Azur as a teenager. “I live on Exmoor, high on a sea cliff overlooking the small seaside village of Lynmouth.
On a sunny summer’s day when the temperature is hot, the sea is turquoise and the palm trees are gently swaying in the wind, Lynmouth feels like I am back in the South of France again.” The pattern has two colour variations, so you can make a moonlight or sunset version.
