You know the feeling when you enter a space where beauty and functionality come together perfectly, a real space, for real people. That feeling is remarkable. For me, as a designer, I am really excited about the new trend in home interiors of placing priority on good, quality design.

I

nterior trends follow the catwalk. No big statement here, as this is a globally recognised phenomenon. However, what we put into our homes and what we choose to live with every day has to be a more considered choice. In our personal space there is a desire to [PW_Wâ&#x20AC;ŤŮşâ&#x20AC;ŹW]Z\ZMI[]ZML\PQVO[M`XW[MW]Z personality but ultimately this space is also our sanctuary where we crave and covet comfort.

Vibrant pattern and colour brighten up the catwalks. London designer, Mary Katrantzou is the indisputable queen of prints and her clothes are joyful, exotic experiences. Her recent launch is inspired by calligraphy, letters form the basis of textiles and type fonts are embossed into block colour fabrics. Pattern makes us happy and it intrigues. It begs to tell a story and we are now happy to clash those patterns not just in fashion but also in our homes.

A

s a period furniture expert and lover of the English country house, it pleases me no end to see a resurgence in demand for opulent, elegant yet comfortable furniture from those centuries when furniture was bold and beautiful. ?PQTM \PKMV\]ZaN]ZVQ\]ZM designs, particularly those of Thomas Chippendale, George Hepplewhite, Thomas Sheridan and William Kent, could hardly ever have been said to be out of NI[PQWV\PMZMQ[ILMÅVQ\M\ZMVL\W_IZL[N]ZVQ[PQVOXMZQWL properties to their respective age and style. Every day we are increasingly being asked to help with the restoration, reinstating and furnishing of country houses to their former glory in the UK and throughout the world. Our clients, who tend to be Americans (who were familiar with Georgian furniture long before Independence) and Russians as well as British, usually have a love of English furniture and the English way of life and want their interiors designed, decorated and furnished to suit the style of the property. ;W_PaQ[ \PIVLMIZTa!\PKMV\]ZaN]ZVQ\]ZM[WPQOPTa XZQbMLNWZ\WLIa¼[QV\MZQWZ['=V\QTZMKMV\TaUW[\XMWXTM_Q\P wonderful country houses to furnish would be hard pushed \WÅVLWZQOQVITIV\QY]M[QVPQOP^WT]UM<PM[MXQMKM[ZIZMTa come to the market and when they do they are often well JMaWVLUW[\XMWXTM¼[J]LOM\ Not everyone with a wonderful Georgian property has a bank balance to match.
