A Scandi Easter

This Easter, we’re setting the table with home dyed eggs, coloured feathers and the colour green.

Animal Instinct

I inherited two Bauhaus style chairs from my late grandfather, who had a great eye for design and a passion for quality.  The chairs were originally upholstered in deco green leather, but I’ve  recently upholstered them in a zebra print ”Le Zebre” from Brunchwig & Fils.   This handprinted linen fabric goes well with the streamlined design and the chrome finish.

When it comes to interior design, I like mixing it up. I don’t believe you have to stick to one particular ‘era’ or ‘style’. The bay window of our 1850s cottage is adorned with Verner Panthon’s famous Flowerpot light (designed in 1969), some tea light holders from Petersham Nurseries and a planter from Kew Gardens.  The screen in the background is designed by Swedish … Read More Let there be light
