This is the first Dresser pattern we worked with, clearly seeing how it could be adapted to stencils and how great it would be for a floorcloth design. We loved the original Dresser palette and the first piece we made with the pattern, a rather complicated U-Shaped design, employed this colorway. Several additional colorways have been explored as have different shapes, all working beautifully in this versatile design.

This is a very customized version of the StarFlower design - the clients had a vision! They wanted to introduce a bird theme and chose stencils from the Stencil Library's vast collection that were modified to work in this configuration. William Morris's 1883 fabric design "Strawberry Thief" graces the corners and the central border was replaced with bird motifs. Their kitchen is papered with William Morris's 1866 design, "Fruit" and the floorcloth palette picks up on this extensive palette. An interesting combination of Dresser and Morris motifs!
