I’m a little addicted to home magazines and blogs, and love seeing different combinations of decorations and colours. I thought I’d pair some paintings with accessories and style a home. I started with new painting Coming of the Winds. Taking from my Turkish inspiration for the painting, with memories of warm breezes atop of mountainous beach villages, I wanted to use draping fabric, colourful rugs and fresh linen. Some accessories which carry warmth.
The inspiration for Misty Mountain came from a ski season I worked in Switzerland. It was where the bond film On Her Majesties Service was filmed, where the revolving building was at the top of the biggest mountain in the region. I wanted something with that retro 70s ski chalet vibe. Bright oranges and yellows in the accessories matched the painting, with classic designs of Tom Dixon and glassware from Oliver Bonas.
