Newlyn home goods and fabrics enterprise releases new range inspired by Cornwall
A NEWLYN home goods and fabrics business has released a new range mirroring the colours of Cornwall.
Betty Boyns' Country Girl line draws on the county's natural hues, such as earth, flowers and the sea.
Owner and designer Paula Nicholls said her collection reflected the landscape around her and had proved popular.
"This range is inspired by my interest in colour; there are natural shades but also some bolder ones," she said.

"It highlights Cornwall – the soil in St Just, the autumn skies and sea and a particular type of geranium you get down here. It's very much based on the Cornish world around me."
After releasing a number of items this year, Mrs Nicholls has now made most of the collection available to the public, with an official launch at a London design show in January next year, where the full catalogue will be on show.
"We're testing the market," she said. "A lot of things are out there and they've been really successful."
Items including curtains, cushions and lampshades are sold across the country as well as in local shops such as Hobbs on Causewayhead, Penzance, and at the business's shop in St Ives. Most are made in Newlyn, where Mrs Nicholls lives with her husband, author Colin Bacon, who also helps out with the company.
