everyone’s talking about…

1 SIXTIES FEVER Prepare for a retro revival as The Crown season 3 hits our screens on 17 November, plunging us into Palace life in 1964. And while we doubt we’ll see Her Majesty kicking back on a Verner Panton chair head-to-toe in Mary Quant, you can bet there will be Bubble hairdos, pastel skirt suits and royal scandals galore. 2 COMPETITIVE TABLE ART No longer the preserve of the faux-rustic alfresco wedding breakfast, the ELT (Elaborately Laid Table) is certified social media catnip, and you’ll need Murano glassware, vintage linen tablecloths, Astier de Villatte-this and scallop-edged-that to compete. Stock up at The Edition 94 (pictured). 3 BRAVE BEIGE Not‘blah’ifapproached with floor-to-ceiling panache. Check out the Kelly Wearstler-designed rooms in Santa Monica’s just-opened Proper Hotel, featuring cool OTT proportions, playful textures and midcentury styling that…

colour directions

This season’s palette is as much about mood enhancement as it is bold decorating, say Jane Rockett and Lucy St George in their new book Rockett St George: Extraordinary Interiors in Colour.

just three years ago, Rebecca Sophie Leigh hadn’t picked up a paintbrush since school. But within weeks of buying a paint set on a whim, she had sold a piece of work to royalty and her new career as an artist took off. Now her portraits evoking a bygone era adorn the walls of international clients from fashion to film. Rebecca lives in Hampton, southwest London with her sons, aged 15 and 12. Sum up your business in five words… Creative, varied, solitary, expressive, exciting. What was your light-bulb moment? It was more a turning point moment really, walking into an arts shop in Notting Hill on a rainy day three years ago. I only went in for shelter so I played around with brushes and looked at paint. I hadn’t painted since school…

design competition

We know that the routes into the design world are not open to everyone; that the industry is not as diverse as the nation and that there is work to be done on getting a good representation of the country into creative fields. So we are excited to be partnering with Habitat for an inclusivity initiative, opening doors to everyone. If you have a bright idea for a piece of furniture, some lighting or textiles, now is the chance to have it created, sold and be paid fairly for your work by Habitat, one of the UK’s leading retailers of contemporary design. We’re looking to champion new talent: people who have never had their work put into production before and who have the potential to become the next big stars of our…
