Bold, daring and colourful; the new House of Holland range of home products for Habitat is the perfect collaboration. Everything we would expect from the top fashion house, House of Holland is present in the range with a ‘riot of colour’ and clashes of ginghams and botanical prints.

This year marks the tenth year in business for the fashion house which is a great time for Henry Holland to launch their second interior collection for Habitat. Taking inspiration from his SS17 catwalk collection, ‘Free To Roam’, the collection is full of fun and confidence. Inspired by Josef Koudelka’s photography of gypsy communities, each look is rustic and celebrates a thrown together aesthetic, embracing clashes of prints and textures.

The collection has now been translated into home products which all run with the same ideas as the bold fashion collection. Henry Holland believes that “wearing colour makes you feel different; it can make you feel mischievous and happy and you have to be carrying a certain attitude underneath if you’re wearing a lot of colour. Colour plays a massive part in injecting a sense of fun” which can now be injected throughout our home surroundings which will evoke this same confidence and attitude.

To mark the launch of the new collection, Henry decked out a beautiful room at The Hoxton, Holborn, head to toe in the SS17 Habitat collection. An absolute explosion of colour and print, “the Boho bedding combining folkloric florals and patchwork on a super high thread count cotton; graphic ginghams juxtaposed against classic floral embroideries…we’ve combined all of these for the bedroom collection” says Holland, excited to exhibit his collection in such a bold way.

As well as all of the elements of the collection, they decided to decorate one of the walls in a bespoke, floral wallpaper to fully embrace the over the top, gypsy style that Holland was inspired by at the beginning.
