Bonnie and Neil
Bonnie and Neil is the creation of real life partners Bonnie Ashley and Neil Downie bringing together their collective backgrounds in floristry, art, textiles, furniture and set design.
One of Australia’s most popular independent textile design studios, they are known for their vibrant ranges of unique screen printed products for the home. Largely incorporating botanical motifs, bright patterns and occasional nod to Australiana culture, their designs are influenced by their surroundings and a shared love of colour.
Their approach to design is rather intuitive, involving a combination of traditional printing methods paired with unique applications they’ve developed over the years. Every product is produced by hand in their studio in Melbourne on high quality materials. Its this handmade process which makes each piece unique.
The brand was originally launched in 2010 from a modest pocket-sized studio with a few local stockists. These days their beautiful handmade, screen printed homewares can be found in the US, Asia and most recently the UK, stocked by Anthropologie, Selfridges and Bloomingdales.
