editor’s letter

Living in an old home in the modern age can sometimes make you feel left behind when it comes to innovations in the house design sector (not to mention the fantasy of lower fuel bills). However, owning a character property with a link to the past brings its own unique pleasures. You can’t beat the sense of satisfaction gained from restoring an original feature to its former glory, or in discovering that perfect new piece that looks like it has always been there. One of the greatest joys is shopping for those key fittings and furnishings, and whether you err on the side of authenticity or prefer an old-meets-new approach, it’s important that they complement the era of the house and honour its integrity. To help you shop with confidence,…

talent spot

Introducing Sophie Elm, an illustrator, surface pattern designer and ceramicist working under the alias of Jeff Josephine Designs. After graduating in Illustration from Edinburgh College of Art, Sophie now employs her drawing skills across a wide selection of objects, offering a collection of handcrafted studio pottery, art prints and printed textiles, all created in her Gloucestershire home studio. Favourite subjects include quintessential cottage garden motifs, from pea pods to primulas, which sit alongside playful abstract patterns and are all bound by a signature naive charm and punchy primary palette. ‘I draw inspiration from many places,’ says Sophie. ‘I love the bold, colourful illustrations of 20th-century children’s books, as well as packaging with bold typography, and I’ve always had an interest in traditional Scandinavian folk art.’ (jeffjosephinedesigns.co.uk)…

eye on design

Tell us the story behind MissPrint I founded it with my mum Yvonne Drury in 2005, after I’d been inspired by screen printing projects at university.

We began by printing onto silk and making lampshades, but quickly expanded into printed cushions, wallpapers and fabrics. Every pattern is hand-illustrated by me and starts as a page in my sketchbook; I love the imperfections and non-uniformity that you get from original drawings. These drawings are then translated into patterns and screen printed onto fabric and paper using organic inks. From where do you draw inspiration? I admire the simplicity of Scandinavian style. I love how many of the mid-century prints depict organic motifs in their most…

victorian splendour

While authentic Victorian interiors would prove impractical for modern living, their wealth of ornate prints and rich colour palettes offer plenty of inspiration for a scheme with period drama. The Victorians loved ornamentation in all its forms; whether exterior or interior, every surface of the home was used as a vehicle for decoration, from brickwork and architectural mouldings to stained glass and encaustic tiles, with wallpaper finding particular favour. Often referred to as The Golden Age of wallpaper, the 19th century witnessed developments in manufacturing that made wallpaper readily available to the masses. Rather then hand-block printed onto individual sheets, rotary presses allowed designs to be printed onto continuous rolls of paper. Small repeat prints were preferred as backdrops to artworks, and widespread gas lighting meant that darker colours could…
