Research: Florence Broadhurst prints

Florence Broadhurst was an Australian designer who owned a successful wallpaper and textile company based upon her own designs. Florence had a signature style of black and white or brightly coloured geometric and nature-inspired prints. I love her black and white prints because they are very striking and versatile. The following images have been taken from Signature Prints.

After seeing these I am inspired to produce the print repeat for my assignment in a black and white colour scheme. The reason for this is because Florence's designs demonstrate the way in which a black and white palette can make for highly effective prints. Black and white reflect neutrality and can create a very minimalist and contemporary feel.
