find the perfect freestanding wardrobe

THERE’S SO MUCH TO CONSIDER WHEN LOOKING FOR A NEW WARDROBE but get it right and it will be a striking focal point for the room and a well-loved friend that makes keeping clothes tidy, and finding them quickly in the morning, so much easier. THE WARDROBE STYLE PLAYS A HUGE PART IN THE LOOK OF THE ROOM; country favourites include a rustic distressed paint finish, tongue-and-groove panelling, a smooth, contemporary paint finish or tactile natural wood. If you’re tidy enough, or you’re kitting out a dressing room, you could dismiss doors in favour of open storage. DUE TO ITS SIZE, A WARDROBE WILL INEVITABLY BE A DOMINANT FIXTURE IN THE ROOM, its position dictated by the bed and doorways. Measure carefully before ordering – unless you choose a model with sliding…

a polished palette

Having developed a strong background in textiles, design and fashion styling, SYRETT moved into the world of fine art 14 years ago – and now, his work can be found in galleries and collections around the world. His recent pieces explore the artistic possibilities of nail varnishes and lacquer in swirling, abstract paintings that are steeped in dreamy romanticism, while exploiting all the textural possibilities of this unusual medium. It’s a style he refers to as Haute Couture Abstraction. ‘People often respond to my work as if they’re looking at clouds,’ says SYRETT. ‘Everyone sees something different and, strangely, men and women will view the same image completely differently. I heard one couple discussing a painting, and he had an affinity with the shapes, as they reminded him of a favourite album…
