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.

Had a great day of selling at todays For The Love Of Yarm fair... caught up with old friend Steven from Browne's Temperance Bar
( https://www.facebook.com/brownestemperancebar?fref=ts ) and just after my feta and mixed seed salad (ahem) I couldn't resist a slice of this white chocolate, rose water and pistachio cake. Ooopppssy. Thanks to everyone friends and industry contacts alike for popping along and making my Sunday even better.

This coming Sunday I will be selling at For The Love Of Yarm.

Hope to see you there!
My NIYAHA wallpaper has been used by the fabulous Australian store and interior designer company The Assembly Hall! Used in Babylon Flowers based in Melbourne, this design seems to be going down well in Australia at the moment! http://www.theassemblyhall.com.au/

I've just returned from a fleeting visit to London to celebrate the book launch of Creative Family Home with a true inspiration and friend Ashlyn Gibson (featured in the middle). It was such a wonderful evening spent in Ashlyn's new home the Clapton Laundry in Hackney, the room was full of inspiring and influential friends Ashlyn has gathered throughout her career. Ashlyn home itself is something of a stylists dream, full of eccelctic hoardings presented in a way I couldn't resist taking a few snaps. Congratulations Ashlyn on your debut book launch! You're creative ability is endless and still continues to inspire me after ten years of knowing you!

Just returned from a very fabulous trip to Paris to find out that my work is featured in the new Amanda Briggs-Goode book, Printed Textile Design. An older design of mine 'Hollis' has pride of place across the contents page, and later featured on the same page with William Morris and Lucienne Day - pretty happy with that! On sale now through Laurence King Publishing Ltd

After my week in Paris I jumped straight into working on a three day private wall mural in London. The brief was set to work in a masculine space using a tonal colour palette and featuring a combination of previous work. This is the first mural I have done in years and I thoroughly enjoyed it, and had great feedback from a happy client at the end.

For the past week I've had the privilage of working for a friends fashion textile studio Milkprint based in London. The studio exhibited at the huge fashion trade show Indigo in Paris. Amongst the most exhausting working days at the show (anyone who has exhibited at a trade show knows the level of tiredness I'm talking about!), I managed to get some fancy snap shots. I even bumped into fashion designer John Rocha on my lunch break! What a placid chappy! My favourite studio from the whole show was Mirjam Rouden who's textile designs I would cover every inch of my home with! http://www.mirjamrouden.com/
