editor’s letter

Behind every great home improvement project there is a strong vision. This might be an unswerving, meticulous plan that is faithfully adhered to, or, particularly in the case of the most eclectic, lived-in schemes, it’s one that evolves over months and years, with tastes changing, new discoveries made, and each element that’s introduced altering the fate of the ones to come. This month’s cover house is testament to the theory of sticking to a good plan. ‘Our aim was to restore the building to its original form as closely as possible,’ says Nicholas Groves-Raines, who with wife Kristín has painstakingly repaired and preserved the 17th-century former merchants’ house, which was in a very poor state, removing unsympathetic additions and reinstating lost architectural features.

eye on design

What was the inspiration behind The Fabric Collective? To have the best showroom for artisan fabrics and wallpapers, showcasing contemporary collections from established brands to emerging talent. My love of fabrics began with collecting small pieces of vintage chintz and weaves from fleamarkets many years ago, and since I started printing my own I have become fascinated with handcrafted designs and techniques. The collections are chosen for their individual creative stories and together are an eclectic yet complementary mix. Delightful florals, naïve etchings, Turkish and Indian-inspired motifs, sit alongside abstracts and fine decorative linings.
