Behind the scenes of a magical photoshoot

It’s time to say goodbye to Callista – my current collection of fabrics and wallpapers. So everything is now 40% off, with limited stock available. I thought it would be fun to take a trip down memory lane, and take you behind the scenes of the incredible photoshoot we did in collaborationg with Harlequin. We took the iconic pictures in a forest in the Lake district, with the odd dog walker passing by and wondering what they had stumbled across…


Here are some behind-the-scene photos – we had a lot of fun running around with smoke bombs. The lampshades in the trees now hang in my studio and are enormous in real life (if you have ever come to one of my studio sales you would have seen them).

Lampshades so big you can fit in them!

Summery voiles

Here’s a closer look at some of these designs from that collection… First up, these ombre voiles. They are intricately embroidered with goose-grass stems, embellished with small sequins and let in the most beautiful soft light.

Our two bestsellers

Kismet is a natural linen fabric printed with layers of ferns, vines, stems and leaves that overlap as we print, in a palette of bright turquoise, chartreuse, mustard and metallic gold on a dark ground.

Beautiful silks

The rich yellow of the Burnet silk is all warmth and optimism, while the purple Sanguisorba seedheads give the design depth. It makes a room really glow, while the  burnet silhouettes keep it feeling contemporary.

I hope you enjoyed the behind-the-scenes throwback. Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the sun while it lasts!
