I was delighted to be asked to join this fabulous event hosted by The Paper Girls - Abigail Warner and Lucy Ledger. We were flying out on our summer holiday very early the next morning, so I was inititally in two minds. I was so glad I did.
Some of our furniture, including one of our 'new' coffee tables with two drawers. Fill with flowers or packs of cards!!
The venue was beautifully styled and featured interesting wall art. Pantone colour swatches, little envelopes and decals with messages and notes and the odd flamingo here and there. I was lucky enough to take some of the gorgeous Farrow & Ball wallpaper home with me that dressed either side of the stage. I have my eye on one design for our lounge.
Cath Kidston was the Key Note Speaker. Speaking about the "Journey of a Brand, she shared her inspirational story from her kitchen tabletop dreams to multi-national success, she talked about her vision and creative processes. It was lovely to hear about collaborations such as the fabric for Ikea. Who didn't have some Rosali fabric from Ikea?
It was lovely to hear everyone elses story too. Geraldine James, author of many gorgeous books and Head Buyer for Selfrides. She inspired me to start writing my book!!
