Love at first sight cc – tapis handmade rugs at Maison & Objet

Nothing enlivens a room quite like an exciting rug, I often dream about designing the most outlandish rugs in terrific colour ways.

It was love at first sight last Friday when I came across the cc-tapis stand at Maison & Objet in Paris. It looks like they’ve been working with that brief all along. What a thrill to find cc-tapis. Now I can dream about designing rugs for them.

Smythson Styling

 

It’s wonderful to see my End of Day Confetti lamp and Classical Urn decoupage tray used in Smythson’s Christmas campaign. What a thrill to see them in such good company.

Can you say the alphabet backwards?

It has been astonishing but not wholly surprising to see the Alphabet brush pots being such a success, what a wonderfully fun thing to have produced. Making these has taught me a few good lessons in production logistics and bought me into contact with some brilliant people, long may it last. And I am bursting with pride to say that they are handmade in London (aside from the glass which is of course the finest blown crystal from Slovakia).

It gives me great pleasure to launch the new range of colours based on flowers. Carnation, Lilac, Cowslip, Bean Shoot, Peony and Periwinkle. 

Available now at Pentreath & Hall

It has been so much fun developing this range of brush pots. Of course it hasn’t been without it’s challenges, but I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. I even had a good time writing the copy for them, they’ve been popular from the very get go and I’m really looking forward to seeing some pictures of them in their newfound homes.

Workroom Profile V: Melodi Horne Soft Furnishings

I am sitting down with Melina Blaxland-Horne, newly installed in unit 17a Rugby Street here in Bloomsbury, surrounded by her beautiful silk ikat lampshades and cushions. The first question I have to ask her is “Where did the name Melodi Horne come from?”

A smile spreads across her face “Ok but don’t laugh.  No one has ever known this until now.  Me. Lo. Di.  Melina. Loves. Dimitri.” Dimitri, her husband, is sitting to my left “That’s right” he says “This is all about love.”

As seen in Urbis Magazine!

 

Checking my Instagram feed this morning I was as surprised as anyone to see a picture of myself staring back. My lovely cousin Kimberly had posted an excerpt from an interview with me in the March issue of Urbis magazine. She then took a picture of every page  and emailed them to me so I could zoom in on the text and read it, which she kindly did (nice duvet Kimberly :).

I’m so delighted to be recognised and  featured in a magazine from New Zealand I have read and admired since it started. I can’t help but notice what a contrast my style is to the rest of the pages!

Time for a new profile picture.

Pick up your copy today and if you have a spare, send it to me please!
