 A recent project: Teenager Bedroom Makeover in chocolate brown, silver and gold.  The wallpaper in the moodboard and final photograph does not highlight the glitter which is in the wallpaper giving a shimmer effect.

The moodboard below was sent to the client for inspiration and ideas


The completed project with before and after photographs - quite a difference

the room seems much bigger now without the red wallpaper and heavy red curtain fabric


Fabric: Osborne & Little/Sultan/Akoya

Wallpaper: Osborne & Little/Pasha/Pardus


I provided soft furnishings for the delightful 16th century traditional country pub in Mugswell

The Well House Pub, Mugswell, Surrey CR5 3SQ

May 2015

Summer is almost upon us and there are some fabulous new fabics to look out for to update and revive your home.  A particular favourite of mine at the moment is Voyage Iridescence.  Beautiful bold  flower prints that look like they have been painted in watercolour with the fabric in a linen/cotton mix.  My particular favourite are the Iris flowers below to bring a wow, fresh feel to the home either used in curtains, cushions or blinds.



Here are some completed projects this month

March 2015

Here are some completed projects this month.  You will see from the before and after photographs of the chair below what a difference reupholstering can do to furniture.  If you see a chair that you like but are not keen on the colour and fabric we can make the furniture and have it upholstered in a fabric of your choice.  All pieces of furniture are collected and delivered once upholstered direct to your home.
