We have been officially open for a little over three weeks, and have finally been able to reveal our feature wall by wallpaper designer Tracy Kendall.
After weeks of hints and close up shots we are very proud of not only Tracy’s sequinned wallpaper creation but we are also lucky enough to have an exclusive Tracy Kendall Sample Book in store. Our team and in house designer are on hand to work with you through choosing your style and design that works best for your home.
Textures, Patterns, Text, before we guide you through these inspired designs we start by getting to know Tracy who has also shared with us some tips of her own.
Tracy, have you always had a passion for design?
I remember at infant school, when I was 5 or 6, doing a very large painting of a tree which was then put up in the school hallway, think my fate was sealed from then onwards.
Where do you get your inspiration?
Like lots of designers I get inspiration from everywhere, buildings, fashion, films. Quite often it’s a layering of information rather than just one single source that makes a design which then helps to give the design a more complex and complete structure.
How would you describe your style of design?
I’ve recently had a friend call me a modernist which I think suits me well for design. I do often reference and pay homage to the past but the outcome of my design is modern.
How did you start your business?
Like many designers I started by making something for myself at home and it grew from there. In some ways it’s how I still design for the collection, I have to love the design and want it for myself so that when I sell it, others can pick up on that passion for the wallpaper designs.
We are proud to have your pieces featured in our store. What encouraged you to agree to come on board?
Penelope has such a great enthusiasm and passion for design it was an easy decision to make.
What do you see as the key trends for 2015?
People getting more confident in their own choices of design for their own homes. There is so much good design and so much advice available that more and more people are taking control of their own interiors and wanting to express themselves through them.
How should we use one of your creations in our homes?
Use my wallpapers as part of the whole scheme, you should feeling happy and confident with all the elements you put together in a room and my wallpapers can be a part of that whole scheme.
