Interior Inspiration: Elizabeth Scarlett's Tropical-Inspired Textiles
If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that my love for decorative pineapples knows no bounds. When I spotted Elizabeth Scarlett's gorgeous, tropical-inspired collection of washbags, cushions and bucket bags in an online magazine, I was smitten - especially since I've been searching for the perfect makeup bag to stash in my carry-on.
Each piece in Elizabeth's collections is embroidered with one of her hand-painted designs. With a background in fine art and textiles, it's easy to see why her products are all so pretty and fun to use! Initially, I fell in love with the soft, pale blue Palmier chambray washbag, but then I saw the indigo-hued Ananas washbag and, well, it was game over for me. Who wouldn't want to be seen pulling that out of their tote?!
Sadly for my bank account, the Ananas washbag comes in two colorways (indigo, which I own, and grey, which I also love), plus the pattern is also embroidered on a duvet cover - yes, that's right, a duvet cover. Not sure if John would entertain the idea of sleeping on bed linen embroidered with pineapples, but there's always the guest room to play with (cue evil laugh).
I'm a fan of the easy luxury of Elizabeth Scarlett's designs and the affordable price point (which also makes them perfect to give as gifts). My washbag (pictured here) is soft and roomy - just the right size for storing my favorite in-flight essentials like the Avene thermal water spray (which is a godsend for long-haul flights! Even John asks for it when I pull it out to spritz my face) and my makeup brushes. Although I tend to pack light, I still find myself cramming things into my makeup bag right before I board the plane and struggling to zip it up after I've taken something out of it mid-flight.
Aside from the Ananas washbag, I'm also a huge fan of this Coral Palmier Bucket Bag (perfect for beach escapes and city breaks alike) and the Palmier Taupe Cushion, which I think would look fantastic on our new West Elm garden sectional.
