HUNTING. GATHERING. MAKING.
THE GOOD STUFF.

Inspiration: Claire Coles


Claire Coles creates bespoke wallpaper which I have had bookmarked since I began researching wallpaper for our house. Not that bespoke wallpaper was ever remotely within my budget… but it never hurts to keep inspirational things filed. For a while I even had the idea that I might customise some vintage wallpaper myself. Of course the main thing that’s stopping me is my old enemy: time.

Since revisiting Claire’s website I discovered her beautiful ceramics, brooches and illustrations. All embroidered. Too gorgeous to keep to myself…



Loving the image above, which was a commission for a Ted Baker store.

    Hi Jessica, Oh I wish I could say yes! I’d love to work on something like that… but alas, no I haven’t as yet. It’s still something I’d love to do though.
