Tell us about yourself. I’m a designer and creative director based in London. I recently took on the role of head of design for Liberty Interiors. We design and make fabrics and wallpapers for contemporary interiors – archival Liberty prints are reinterpreted and reworked, and mixed with new designs created in our London studio. Describe your Instagram account. I believe in producing work that is distinctive, precious and long-lasting, and I try to convey this. I love to mix colour, pattern and tactile surface with research into historic decorative arts to create modern heritage pieces. I also love experimentation and I like to show the journey of a textile. What is your account’s USP? I put a special focus on surface and process: lustre and matt are balanced with line and tone,…

the return of real inspiration

LIVINGETC House Tours Live is an innovative event that opens the doors to inspiring houses and amazing schemes.

two-tone style

SPLIT DECISION The two most popular ways to divide colours are either a horizontal split – wall units versus base units – or a focal point split where just the island unit or dresser is a different shade. But there is a third way. Colour blocking, as seen here, corrals contrasting colours into distinct areas for a modular, almost free-standing look. ‘Colour blocking can make a simple two-tone scheme feel much more dynamic. A high-contrast split will make the strongest impact. Tie the colours together using small details like cabinet handles and taps,’ says Ashleigh Hanwell, senior designer, Second Nature Kitchens. NATURAL PARTNERS Use timber for one of your tones and enjoy a dual-colour kitchen with natural beauty. ‘In this London kitchen we loved the warmth of the nude/pink cabinets against the bespoke…

far from the madding crowd

Life on Margot and James Gilfillan’s farm could not be more idyllic. Whether they are relaxing on sofas before a crackling fire, gathering around the huge marble-topped table in the family kitchen or strolling through sun-dappled orchards, there seems little to separate the inside and out. Daily living for the couple and their three daughters weaves through the home’s many French doors, framing domestic scenes set against a backdrop of floral patterns that welcome the outdoors in, while the abundant greenery beckons the family out. There hasn’t always been such a relaxed flow: disconnected rooms, low ceilings, a dark kitchen and small windows once defined the original homestead. It is testimony to the couple’s renovations and Margot’s thoughtful decorating that life on the farm now embraces its surroundings so comfortably. The family…
