Mini Moderns Whitby bedding

Now that the weather has turned cold and all I want to do is lie under a duvet, this bedding set caught my eye on Twitter. The Whitby bedding set by Mini Moderns is released in December . I love the colour and linocut look. It’s very evocotive. I can imagine going to sleep with the sound of waves and seagulls flying overhead. Not something I hear a lot in the middle of London.

Inspired by 1950s linocuts, ‘Whitby’ captures the majesty and beauty of the open sea.
 
Mini Moderns designers Keith Stephenson and Mark Hampshire explain how the design came about: “Coincidentally, we both spent all our holidays on the North Yorkshire coastline. Keith grew up 20 miles from Whitby, and Mark’s Aunty ran a boarding house in near-by Filey. So when we think of the seaside, it’s not beach huts and yachts, but the vibrancy of a working fishing harbour that comes to mind. The linocut style offered the perfect way of expressing the movement of the waves and the ruggedness of the coastline we know so well.”
 
The print features a pair of brave fishing boats, circled by a flock of hungry seagulls. The bold wave motif creates the effect of the sea morphing into a cloudy sky, forming a dramatic horizontal stripe. The colours of weathered seaside awnings and fisherman’s overalls informed the palette.
