Chelsea safari

It’s design week at Chelsea Harbour, have you been? I went yesterday to scratch up the car in the super-tight carpark and to nearly get a cuddle off a security guard who wasn’t looking where he was going while flailing his arms weirdly.  That said, Cole & Son’s new Fornasetti (II) monkeys, Procuratte Scimmie, managed to raise a smile from my long face.


I can imagine either it or the privet hedge Chiavi Segrete print making somebody’s cloakroom loo look more splendid. Both were launched in January at Maison Objet along with a wider collection, which you can see in full here.

Onto Mulberry Home, where I liked this goose print fabric…


Not sure whether that wall was actually purpley-grey or whether my camera made it so, but it’s a nice partner for the fabric.

I also really liked the plaids and paisley prints, but is it because of that picture of a castle peeking out and my secret love of Monarch of the Glen?


Finally, Kravet was showing its exclusive  Jonathan Adler fabric collection, which was exactly as you might imagine it to be.

      Monkey wallpaper doesn’t come cheap Trish. Might be cheaper to get your own monkey and let it run up the curtains to pleasing aesthetic effect x

    Goose print drapes with those lavender walls actually looks really good!

      It does! And the phrase ‘Goose print drapes’ is so pleasing too x
