BEATA HEUMAN Interior designer ‘When I was little, I would constantly rearrange my room and perfect my doll’s house, and I loved snooping around other people’s houses,’ says Beata Heuman. As an adult, she does this professionally for clients, including the artist owners of the London house featured from page 80. ‘I particularly enjoyed it because of the owners’ boldness and willingness to go for something completely original.’ Beata trained her eye working for Nicky Haslam before setting up on her own. She lives in ‘an idyllic little pocket of London’ near the river by Hammersmith Bridge, in a house ‘full of bright colour and custom-made furniture’. What was memorable about this project? ‘We used a lot of bespoke furniture, which was a fantastic opportunity. But when you design something from scratch,…

I’m not sure I’ve ever stuck to a New Year’s resolution, I’m ashamed to admit it, but this year, in support of the designers who have shared their resolutions for 2017 in this issue (pages 68-69), I feel I must. And just maybe the fact that it is in print will be an incentive to ensure I carry it through. There is definitely no point in me trying to give up milk chocolate as interior designer Peter Mikic suggests; as much as I’d like to attempt it, I won’t. I’ve just popped several bite-size Cadbury Wispas into my mouth as I type this. So, inspired by Elizabeth Metcalfe’s ‘Design ideas’ featuring smart, work-conducive studies and desk areas (pages 59-62), my resolution is to file paperwork as I go and make our…

to be frank

The twentieth-century designer and architect Josef Frank (1885–1967) is best known for his lively, vividly coloured textile designs and distinctive furniture, which he produced for the revered Swedish design brand Svenskt Tenn. Frank was prolific: he designed 160 textiles, often bedecked with f loral shapes, butterflies, birds and vegetables, and over 2,000 pieces of furniture. Although he was forced to flee from Hitler’s Europe, his textiles are full of cheer and optimism. Perhaps that explains their timeless appeal: more than 40 are still being produced and sold by Svenskt Tenn. What is less known about Frank is that he spent his later years painting watercolours. He had drawn all his life, starting when he was an architect in his native Austria, before he painted his furniture sketches and pattern designs in…
