The Story So Far...
I initially trained as a nurse and a teacher before marrying Nicholas, an architect, and having four children. Together we converted a cow byre in the Cotswolds. Since we couldn't afford curtains, I had to create my own fabrics. I found screen printing and block printing liberating and enriching and to my surprise, friends started using the designs in their own homes. Ten years on my enthusiasm for designing fabric burns stronger than ever and I just hope that people continue to humour and fund my passion!
The Cotswold countryside is the setting for my life and it hugely influences the look of my fabrics. The developing fashion in interior design is towards simple patterns which reflect a basic and rustic way of living and I have been very fortunate that this mirrors my life and, thus, my designs.
There are nine collections: Hand Printed, Meadow, Earth, Cockerel, Wildflower, Seaside, Garden, Woodland, and Sky. The collections compliment each other by sharing colours and include useful co-ordinates such as checks, stripes, spots, and floral prints.
Gentle colours are my signature and include teal, pigeon, spinach, buttercup, limestone, clay, damson, duck egg, stone, raspberry, mushroom, cornflower, straw and lettuce.
I have really enjoyed working with a small family run mill in Solva, Wales to produce some beautiful rugs and stair runners made from 100% British wool… they are the last mill in Wales to weave rugs!
I am pleased to introduce a small range of good quality sofas, chairs, and headboards made in the UK to order and expertly covered in any of our fabrics.Thank you for looking at my web site.
