Would very much like to introduce you all to a wonderful Interior Designer, based in Berwickshire, called Kimberley Bell.
Douglas has photographed Kimberley’s home for Country Homes & Interiors magazine.
The shoot was a great success and we have kept in touch. Kimberley has very kindly offered to ‘guest post’ on Her Indoors, offering readers ‘Seasonal Decorating Tips’.
I am absolutely thrilled about this….Kimberley has recently launched her own range of fabrics, called Peony & Sage’ www.peonyandsage.com They are so pretty…I know you will love them and really enjoy getting to know Kimberley.
This month she suggests:
‘Why not give your kitchen an overhaul this spring?’
If you have old wooden units that are tired and need a new lease of life, yet you don’t want to over spend investing in a new kitchen, the wood can be painted. Try “Bone” By Farrow and Ball in Eggshell, using a softer tone like “Clunch” on your walls. If you have an island or even a base of a table you could paint, consider a strong accent colour like “Hague Blue” to add a bit of definition and focal point to the room.
Dress your kitchen with a large distressed pot filled with Hydrangeas or Peonies….make a table cloth from Bee & Blackberry Dutch Blue fabric, and pretty napkins out of the dot linen. As every room should have a splash of red, what about a memo board on the wall in our Strawberry Design, above?
All fabrics above, Peony & Sage
Why not try our Bee and Blackberry Dutch Blue Design for full, billowing curtains over your French doors, lined in our Dutch Blue Dots…?
‘Hare’ Teatowel, Peony & Sage
Lighting ideas: have a look at Garden Trading Enamel Pendants over your table or island.
Rugs: Add Texture, with a smart sisal rug, with a navy border from Alternative Flooring Company. And, if you have space for one, a Bluebell sofa, in our Skye and Coco Tweed.
Please visit her stockist page to see if there is one near you, or she can send samples direct.
Peony & Sage fabrics have been used in a decorating feature in the current issue of World of Interiors, March 2012
