I thought I would have a bit of a change and work on something a bit more graphic lately and less ‘pretty’. As I said in the previous post, designing patterns without being given a brief from a client can be very liberating, and as it is not often we get to design whatever […]
As some of you may have noticed I have recently launched an online pattern library which is one of the best decisions I have made this year!. I still have a public portfolio , but it really made sense to also have a client portfolio which is of course is password protected. Although a large bulk […]
It was my first time to visit Decorex at Syon Park and it didn’t disappoint, I met with a few existing clients but also had some great conversations with potential new ones. I’ve also chosen four stands that really shone to me to show you today, enjoy!. As you may know I absolutely love […]
Wow where did the time go? I can’t believe it has been 5 years since I threw in the towel at my full time job, and decided that I wanted to be top of my own food chain rather than at the bottom of someone elses!. It really has been a crazy journey full […]
It is always lovely to spot your own surface patterns out and about so I was delighted to see one of the cushion designs I did for a client so nicely displayed in my local garden centre!
Whilst we are in the middle of the heat wave and I feel energised I thought it was about time that I gave new life to my much neglected blog as I have a bad case of blog guilt and blog envy too! (the good news is I have been a busy bee and […]
The other week I got myself down to Chelsea Harbour Design Centre for London Design week. For those of you that haven’t been before it is open all year round, its just that there are extra events and talks going on within this particular week and a very handy shuttle bus which dropped me […]

It’s Pippa again! Today I’ve been looking at the new bedding ranges for spring. Expect lots of bright colours and blooming florals as we move on from the long gloomy winter. Here are my top 6 for the new season: Farah by Vanezza, for Essenza Flowers by PiP Studio Ailleurs by Yves […]
I thought today I’d share the new ranges from two of my favourite furnishing fabric houses, Harlequin and Romo. These launched at the beginning of the year and I just love this watercolour look which is very close to my own heart and signature style. Harlequin’s ‘Amazilia’ is inspired by all things tropical. Butterflies, […]
Hey it’s Pippa here! I went to the Spring Fair last week which was really inspiring. I’ve included a few of my favorite card and gift companies from the show, Caroline Gardner (one of Laura’s favorites too!), Art File and Penny Kennedy. I hope these get your creative juices flowing!
Earlier this year I took on a rather large project which involved designing surface patterns for my favourite accessory ever, (even before shoes!) which is of course cushions. Although I have had a small team of designers working for me for a while now, it really was all hands on deck and we managed […]
