I initially trained as a nurse and a teacher before marrying Nicholas, an architect, and having four children. Together we converted a cow byre in the Cotswolds. Since we couldn’t afford curtains, I had to create my own fabrics. I found screen printing and block printing liberating and enriching and to my surprise, friends started using the designs in their own homes. Fourteen years on my enthusiasm for designing fabric burns stronger than ever and I just hope that people continue to humour and fund my passion!

The Cotswold countryside is the setting for my life and it hugely influences the look of my fabrics. The developing fashion in interior design is towards simple patterns which reflect a basic and rustic way of living and I have been very fortunate that this mirrors my life and, thus, my designs.

There are fourteen collections: Wovens, Bohemian, Swedish, Plains, Hand Printed, Meadow, Earth, Cockerel, Wildflower, Seaside, Garden, Woodland, Sky, and the Wall Collections. The collections complement each other by sharing colours and include useful co-ordinates such as checks, stripes, spots, and floral prints.

Gentle colours are my signature which include teal, pigeon, spinach, buttercup, limestone, reindeer, clay, damson, duck egg, stone, raspberry, mushroom, cornflower, cool, straw and lettuce, and many more.

I have really enjoyed working with a small family run mill in Solva, Wales  to produce some beautiful rugs and stair runners made from 100% British wool… they are the last mill in Wales to weave rugs!

We offer a range of quality sofas, chairs, headboards and footstools made in the UK to order. These are expertly covered in any of our fabrics; please see our Furniture page for more information.
