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!

First preview of DECADENCE COLLECTION, Launching Jan '14!!

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!

Decadence wallpaper photo shoot!

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.

Creative Family Home book launch

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!

London wall mural

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.
