Interior Design Is Personal
Lets get personal...
Interior design is a very personal thing, what one person wants to live with is someone else's nightmare. But at Designed and Created I'm a great believer in making your home as unique as you are, it will make you happy trust me! and its not always about trends. Take 3 great personalities (in my opinion) Sophie Robinson of @sophierobinsoninteriors she didn't go with trend when she filled her house with colour & print or Kirstie Allsopp of @kirstieallsopp when she fill's her home with craft and all things vintage and antique. Or another great women Angel Strawbridge @escape_to_the_chateau when she filled her French castle with all her Angel style. So you get the picture making your home a reflection of you and filling it with things you love is really important.
So take my home the front is a Victorian 1861 façade with wood burners and beams that I fill with colour, print and dark wood vintage pieces but the back is more like something you would see from Tom Raffield @tomraffield or @malmo_in_cornwall well not that good but you get the drift its a back extension that's Scandi inspired full of glass and light wood and white everywhere.
As a designer I love colour and print but I also love the outdoors coming in and the love of true craftmanship in woodwork and ceramics etc so I live in a house of two halves. Some people would hate it but I love it, so you see there are no rules
Artist and makers are a great inspiration for how to make your home unique and I follow some great artists and makers that celebrate their style and make their homes as interesting and unique as their work.
Here are a few of my favourites:
I have to start with The Fabled Thread @fabledthread the most talented artist telling stories in the form of needle and thread, full of detail, colour, vibrancy, magic, skill, craft and story telling her house is just an extension of her work
