Florence Broadhurst was born in Queensland in the late 1800’s . Today upon reflection of her life she has woven an amazing technicolour tapestry around her, from her theatrical performances in the east, and later back in Australia with her innovative wallpaper business. She lived until the late 1970’s, leaving behind a staggering array of beautifully hand drawn and hand printed wallpapers.
Florence said...’My world travel from an early age helped me to become acquainted in all spheres of design.’
In the late 60’s when Australians were quite conservative in their taste, Florence began to change the 'look' of all types of interiors.
This timeless collection of beautiful jacquard towel designs (now available from the Cottonbox website) take their inspiration from Florence's wallpaper design archives
