Megan Ellaby Shows Us How It’s Done

Brace yourself, Archive fans, for Instagram legend Megan Ellaby. The creator of iconic Mancunian fashion brand, Saturday, she’s also a self-proclaimed lover of colour and print - exactly our kind of gal.

At Archive, we were gassed to be working with Megan, a true design troubadour with a penchant for pattern. Never a shy wallflower, her uncompromising fashion sense has translated into a similarly unrelenting approach to her home interiors, too.

With all that in mind, what did Megan make of Archive’s store of rebel-rousing design?


We can’t stop admiring how good our Daisy wallpaper in Strawberry Fields looks in her spare room! Floral fun packing a serious punch, this design hails from the hand of William Morris way back in 1864 – but it’s looking pretty fresh in 2022, too. A colour trap and a pattern magnet, Daisy fills a space with a cocooning feel. Love!


How’s your lampshade game? Megan has just upgraded hers, courtesy of a gorgeous example from our collab with lighting masters, Pooky. The flamenco signature stripe in a pinkish tone means this oft-forgotten accessory takes centre stage.


Accessories until you maximise. Based on the 1899 design from William Morris’s protégé, J.H. Dearle, it’s dripping with colour for another dose of wow-factor pattern. Sometimes, it really is the little things that count. Grow your arsenal of pattern clashes by giving our cushions range a mosey.
