Today was spent at the Graham and Brown studio with the 12 other designers from the New Wave collection! We had our portraits taken alongside our designs.... which was pretty painful, I need to practise 'relaxed smile' a little more... cheese ahoy! It was great catching up with all of the other designers which include: Jessica Hogarth, Lizzie Mary Cullen, Kate Usher, Nancy Straughan, Caroline Davidson, Kev Mundy, Lucinda Bell and Louise Tiler. Launching in March this year! Cant wait to see the final collection altogether.

Popped into my old work place at CCAD yesterday to join their Monday night Print Club for a bit of urgent screen printing. It was great being back in the print rooms and dye lab. Print Club is on every Monday for the next few months, you don't need to sign up, just possess a knowledge in how to wield a squeegee! Check it out... http://ccad.ac.uk/current-opportunities-and-events/print-clubs/

Just back from another great trade show at Home-London! Had a brilliant show and it was fun catching up with so many familiar faces! Thanks to everyone who popped along to say hi over the three days! Sad to be home after being surrounded by so many inspiring people, and it will no doubt be the last time I visit Earls Court before it gets knocked down for development... I'm glad to have been a part of it!

A BIG THANK YOU to all of my followers, customers, retailers, clients and friends for all of your support over 2013, I'm already excited for 2014 and what it will bring, lots of exciting news coming up over the next few months!
I'm exhibiting at Home-London in January if you are visiting, be sure to stop by and say HI! Its always great to catch up with familiar faces and meet people I've built up an online rapport with
I'd like to wish you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and even better New Year!
I'm very excited to finally show off the photoshoot for my next collection Decadence which will be launching at the Home London show on 12th January next year.
I was so happy to be able to work with the very talented Becky Mitchell on the photography for the wallpapers. Becky and I have previously worked together helping to style and shoot a huge vintage wedding shoot two years ago, and knowing that she would just 'get' what I wanted to achieve in my photoshoot, Becky was the obvious to work with! We've both agreed its the start of some very exciting collaborations to come in the future! Check out her website and Facebook page:
I have to say a massive thank you to Northern Lights Interiors for the hiring of their furniture as props for the shoot. Forever generous in letting me rummage through their eclectic shop of wonderful antique and vintage finds. Check them out on Facebook:
Decadence is the second collection to be launched by Surfacephilia and presents a collection of darkly romantic patterns inspired by English heritage and times gone by. Within the collection you will discover layers of eroded surfaces and worn opulence, statuesque woodland creatures, gothic lace patterns, enchanting trees, and haunting moths and butterflies. Colour palettes of raven black, midnight navy and swarthy teal create a sense of drama, whilst lush greens, wedgewood blue and antique gold offer a gentler alternative for your home, workspace or interior project.
The collection consists of digitally printed wallpapers, bone china and for the first time Surfacephilia will be launching its first range of fabrics! All products are made to order and manufactured to the highest of qualities in the UK. Cushions coming this Spring!

Cushions coming this Spring!

After two solid days of excitedly sourcing props, yesterday was blissfully spent styling the wallpaper shoot for my next collection Decadence. I asked the fabulous Becky Mitchell Photography to photograph the sets for me, and I can't wait to get my hands on the final edits next week! Here's a few snippets of the day. All props were hired from the always generous Northern Lights Interiors and Kiwi Trading.

Ooopppssy. Thanks to everyone friends and industry contacts alike for popping along and making my Sunday even better.
