Supremacy of the swatch

The Sunday Times, who described him as 'a designer of exquistite embroideries and toiles', recently featured Brian in one of their articles. In the piece, Brian explained the importance of fabrics - and the supremacy of the swatch - in setting the tone for a room.

Fabrics set the tone for a room, whether you’re going to be bold with big patterns or go more modern with subdued colour and texture. The textiles you choose for sofa and curtains are the foundation for the interior. They’re important partly because they take up such a large amount of surface area. A pair of drawn curtains is a whole wall of colour.

It's precisely because we understand the key role of fabrics that we encourage our customers to take samples to try out at home. So, if you'd like to order any cuttings, please contact us with details of the fabrics of which you'd like a sample.

Vintage stripes and spots

Brian recently appeared in London Metro Home Comforts to advise on using vintage stripes and spots in your bedroom. Here's his top tips:

  • Stripes and spots show personal boldness in room decoration and are a sign of strong feelings and creativity in a living style. Use vertical stripes in low rooms to create extended height and formality.
  • Use one colour of stripe, like greys, blacks or blues for a tonal chicness or use multi coloured stripes in pinks, lilacs and lime greens for a fun and zesty high impact appearance.
  • Tonal horizontal stripes create width and a chic look, great for smaller rooms. Bright colours can create a funky military look, great for Studies and Masculine Bedrooms.
  • Polka dots and spots are back in fashion, for that girly wow, use polkadots to create an impact and dramatic feel. Pinks and aqua's should be used for prettiness and darker oranges, reds and greens for atmosphere.
