many firsts for Love Milo

Just in time for the colours and sweet smell of spring, Love Milo founder and designer Nicki Ellis launches the inimitably beautiful 'Magnolia' collection. The simple yet beautiful floral design is Nicki's first range using colour, and despite this recent inclusion, she maintains that her designs are predominantly black and white; in Magnolia, muted lavenders and shades of pink pair with soft whites and greys. Loved for its ant, branch, dragonfly and fern design, this is also the first time Love Milo has added a flower to its nature-inspired repertoire. 'I have such a passionate love affair with flowers, I honestly couldn’t wait to finally use them,' says Nicki. The Magnolia collection is available in ceramics, fabric and – another first – wallpaper. The wallpaper has a slightly more purple tone and is also available in four different colourways: white, duck-egg blue, black, and black and white. The ceramic range includes different-sized cups and mugs ranging from R157 to R278, with stylish wooden saucers. 100% cotton Magnolia fabric – printed using eco-friendly ink – is available at R404 per metre, while Magnolia wallpaper retails at R650 per metre. The entire Magnolia range and many more products are available on the Love Milo website, visit
