MY WORK New Collections 2016 – Real Homes magazine January 2016 issue
The trend for eccentric wallpapers is huge this year in interiors – but not just for feature walls (so early Noughties). Instead I love the look on two, three or all walls (even put wallpaper on the ceiling if you keep the walls in a matching paint colour). Two of my favourites are from The Graduate Collection which showcases products from exciting new designers coming out of UK universities. The Dachshund wallpaper would be perfect in a hallway, boot room or similar small space; while the Marie Antoinette design would look great in a bedroom, large bathroom or dining room (look closely, and you’ll see how quirky/eccentric it is!). I think they’re genius.
I Adore… The Fab Five Buys from The French Bedroom Company
Grand, glam, baroque, quirky or kitsch – that’s what I love about the products from The French Bedroom Company. Although it mainly focuses on stuff for the bedroom, I could fill every room in my house with their items. As an interiors obsessive, I think there should always be statement pieces and conversation-starters to add some fun to one’s decor scheme. These favourite five do the job perfectly.
I’ve always gone the paint and tile route in the kitchen, but viewing the latest offerings at the Autumn/Winter 2014 press shows a few weeks ago, I was surprised to see so many wallpapers being showcased dans le cuisine. One of my faves, being a major fan of the unsurpassable Dachshund, was this rather country-cool Hunterhill number from Laura Ashley – certainly makes waiting for the kettle to boil a bit more fun! £39.90 per roll.
I’ve fallen in love with these Valletta tiles in Carmelo, from Fired Earth. They’ve got that wonderful vintage feel about them with the added bonus of Mediterranean colours. Great in a dining room, large hallway or open plan space – and fabulous with the decor in this beautiful photo (adore the picture gallery) or with a more contemporary-designed home. Handmade encaustic tiles, 20 x 20cm, £8.99 each or £224.70 per sq/m.
