This year we are pleased to be working with Laura Ashely, Catherine Gee and Little Greene Paint Group.
Celebrating 60 years of design inspiration in 2013, Laura Ashley showcases highlights from the spring/ summer collections. From humble beginnings the brand has become a much loved ambassador for quintessential English style. Supporting design and production within the UK, the destination store for colour and print, stays true to its design heritage for the modern day.
TV Presenter Catherine will offer inspiration for a timeless and relaxed country-style dining room. Working with Lincolnshire interiors firm Chez Soi of Stamford, the roomset will feature natural woods, lovely painted antiques, and decorative accessories from the shop’s current range. Dressed with simple spring blooms and stylish table settings the scheme will feature plenty of ideas for creating an inviting space for spring-time entertaining.
Little Greene’s roomset is a true showcase of timeless interior design. The wallpaper design ‘Crooms Hill’ - from their brand new collection ‘London Wallpapers III’ - is based on a fragment dated from around 1760, retrieved from the Manor House on Crooms Hill in Greenwich and held by the esteemed English Heritage wallpaper archive.The floor is painted in the hard wearing Floor Paint in ‘Invisible Green’, a Georgian colour attributed to the landscape gardener Humphrey Repton, while the cast iron boat bath is painted in ‘Atomic Red’, a vibrant shade whose origin has been authenticated by English Heritage to be as recent as the 1970s.
