Now I’m all about bringing you something different on my interiors journey. Recently I had the great pleasure of meeting the very talented Charlotte Raffo of fabric design company, The Monkey Puzzle Tree, that has hit the textile industry by storm in the last year.
Two core elements were at the heart of the design: The ‘How the leopard got his spots’ velvet fabric fromThe Monkey Puzzle Tree and Dulux HeritageMallard Green on the walls. We’ve met Charlotte, the founder of The Monkey Puzzle Tree a few times at various interiors events and we’ve been fans of this fabric since Charlotte popped over with a sample a few months back.
We've been struck by how interested everyone is in the stories behind our artists and designs. So as it's Valentine's Day we thought it would be appropriate to meetSarah Jane Palmer, the Sheffield based artist behind ourBody Lace voileandMaîtrise wallpaper.
It's dark outside, and our homes are looking a little bare now the decorations have gone.
So there's no better time to start thinking about adding some colour and pattern into your home for 2019 - whether that's a cushion to refresh your sofa, or a whole new scheme to really update your home.
'Only a relatively new business (Charlotte’s been going just over a year now), it’s wonderful to see such a successful early venture. Receiving a lot of interest at Decorex this year, Charlotte is definitely “one to watch”! Read on to hear all about her studio, her inspiration and the drivers behind her work.'
