Duomo in Florence by Nicole Franzen

I recently came across Caroline Z. Hurley‘s beautiful textiles on Instagram and was immediately enamored. Her new collection was inspired during a trip to Florence, Italy. “I loved the Duomo,” she told me. “One day I sat outside and drew all the shapes for hours. I can’t believe that a thing that old can feel so fresh and modern. It really blows my socks off.”

How lovely is the quilt, below? It would look so pretty hung on a wall. “You can really do whatever you want with them,” Caroline explained. “I remember the first block-printed throw I sold was to a woman who wore it as a massive scarf!” See the full collection here.
