Introducing Decorate My Sett

13th February 2018

When I am not busily designing at Pickle, or writing a blog post for here I update a few other blogs we run. Today I thought I would introduce you to Decorate my Sett. Interiors and architecture are an endless source of inspiration for me – the colour, form and style – old or new. Here are a few stories I have shared over the years…

Most recently it was a particular shade of green that caught my eye. From Van Gogh’s canvas to Art Deco panels and painted kitchens.

Sometimes its a texture, the way the light catches a building’s facade or a pleated garment.

It can start with just one image, and then I pursue that feeling I want to capture. Nearly Not There was a colour scheme, hard to define, easier to show.

Always relating to interiors and architecture. For this blog post I sought out rooms seen through an artist’s eye. Art Deco impresses with Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann’s designs. A beautifully bathed in light sitting room is lovingly recreated by Marie-Louise Roosevelt Pierrepont. Or a room abstracted by Caro Niederer, citrus colours form blocks and full pink roses take the foreground.
