Art and Objects for Stylish Interiors
Re discovering art and craft with quality to create a rich tapestry in your home.
Interiors with Style
I believe that all stylish interiors are a reflection of the personality and life of their owners. We should buy furniture, objects and art at different times of our lives and put together they should form a rich tapestry of who we are.
So much good hand made craft and art is neglected because the maker wasn't hugely famous and has been forgotten. I would like to re discover some of those artists and crafts people and help you add them to the tapestry of your homes in an affordable way. My taste is eclectic and broad so there should be something for everyone.
All my life I have been interested in art and crafts. From a very young age I was painting and creating. Almost burning down the kitchen melting wax for my batik work or hobbling around in handmade leather sandals because I hadn't stitched the soles on properly.
Eventually I did a Fashion degree that was part of an icredibly dynamic art college and I was immersed with artists, photographers, textile designers and jewellery designers. All these influences have informed who I am today.
I have always been a voracious reader from a very young age and used to spend endless hours poring over encyclopaedias learning about indigenous cultures around the world. Their art and their crafts have been a huge inspiration to me. Animals and nature are also very important to me. This is why I am driven to re-use and re-purpose objects so that we have zero waste and help to save the planet. These objects can be beautiful and add to the tapestry of our lives.
I have always been passionate about the environment and gardens. I am very lucky to live in a large garden in North Norfolk which I have been re wilding over the last 3 years. It is a never ending process but we have managed to turn a sterile garden with endless immaculate lawns into a small nature reserve. We have turned all the lawns into wildflower meadows, created a new dry garden and planted many trees. All the flower beds are packed with flowers that are loved by the butterflies and the bees. Dragonfies swoop over the pond, butterflies hover wherever you go and bees are buzzing everywhere. We have a family of deer that live in the garden as well as hedgehogs and an endless number of birds. Living with nature is vital for our wellbeing as well as the future of the planet.
