elle decoration

After 157 issues and over 13 years spent building this incredible brand to awardwinning creative, consumer and commercial success, this is my last issue as Editor-in-Chief. And what a fabulous ride it’s been! But, as those that know me well are oft used to hearing me say (or possibly bellow), ‘onwards and upwards, people!’ When our iconic founding editor Ilse Crawford first invited me to be her Features Director back in 1997, little did I imagine I would still be so passionately involved with the magazine some 20 years later – a gazillion shoots, covers, houses and hairstyles on – and still so excited by the very concept of home. Ilse’s definition of the Sensual Home, and her evolution after she left in 1998, were a constant inspiration, and they certainly…

the great big britlist

1 BRIT ABROAD Exuberant British designer Matthew Williamson has taken his flamboyant interior design style overseas, jazzing up new cocktail bar Nama, located in the small Mallorcan village of Deià. Williamson, who lives locally, has combined his own opulent wallpaper and fabric patterns with vintage and contemporary Spanish pieces to inject some signature wow factor into quiet village life (@namabar_deia). 2 A PINCH OF PERFECTION Step into the new Pinch showroom in London’s Pimlico to see British furniture at its finest Pinch’s elegantly understated new furniture shop presents only a few of the brand’s instant classics at one time (they rotate designs every six weeks), but husband-and-wife team Russell Pinch and Oona Bannon’s clean, traditionally inspired aesthetic is always clear. When the duo founded Pinch in 2004, they sat down together at their kitchen…

WONDER WALLS Manufactured in Britain since 1877, wallcovering brand Lincrusta’s designs still impress today. Deeply embossed to create a 3D effect (which, in Victorian Britain, replaced the need for artisan plasterwork) they can be painted any colour. The designs have decorated iconic spaces – from the Titanic to the White House – but now, Lincrusta is looking to the future, with new, modern patterns. From £265 per roll (lincrusta.com). IMPERFECT BEAUTY Ilse Crawford has released her first collection of wallpapers, made in conjunction with Swedish brand Engblad & Co. The ‘Atmospheres’ wallcoverings come in five patterns – ‘Line’, ‘Brush’, ‘Canvas’, ‘Knit’ and ‘Weft’ – all celebrations of human mark making. Key to the collection is the notion of embracing the imperfect: ‘we looked at how wallpaper could bring that feeling of imperfection to…

Excellence is the level at which Henge begins the pursuit of its craft. Excellence in form and in function, excellence in making and in the selection of materials used – these are the touchstones the Italian luxury furniture and design brand has adhered to since its establishment in 2008. It’s a vision that was encapsulated in the very first ‘Home Collection’ created under the direction of architect and designer Massimo Castagna (above right) three years later, which continues to evolve today. Born from a desire to ‘create a house entirely designed by Henge’, the collection has had three major catalogues since its 2011 launch. It offers everything from furniture and lighting to storage and ornamentation, drawing on nature’s finest materials – wood, metal, stone and leather – to bring warmth,…

the five big colour trends

1 POWER PASTELS From palest pink to mint green, these ice-cream hues are back with a bang POWER PASTELSAlthough we’ve seen these shades used individually before, the idea now is to employ them in glorious combinations to maximise the impact 2 PINKS’N’BLUES Here, we embrace the power of pink, but keep it cool with a touch of the blues PINKS’N’BLUESPale pink has always been a potent colour, but team it with blue and it packs an even bigger punchPINKS’N’BLUESThe decorating base note has to be a pale rose pink for this look to work, but be daring and layer more vivacious tones and patterns on top 3 RUSSET REDS Just like a f lash of scarlet lipstick, this is a colour best used as a sophisticated finishing touch RUSSET REDSOne wall, one chair, or one statement print: all…
