About Me and Design Rocks!

My photo
Hello and welcome. Here's a bit about me: I've spent my childhood and a lot of my life traveling. Places, colour and pattern are my biggest inspiration. I've surfed & lived in a tent in Cornwall. Sketched my way round Morocco. Designed from an antique textile archive in Manhattan (dream job!). Styled and written for an interiors magazine on the sleepy island of Malta. Now I live in Manchester, UK, where I run Design Rocks greetings cards. Whilst in Manhattan I amassed a large collection of vintage textiles. These were used as inspiration for my first card range, Vintage Rocks! We sell wholesale so if you'd like a brochure visit the website or get in touch. Thanks for stopping by.

Studio wallpaper

Here's the wallpaper I've chosen for the studio wall to go behind the sofa. It's by Sanderson, I love the retro dandelions and it has a metallic finish to the greys. I might paint the backboard in my bookcases that same lime colour or paper them in the same paper if I have any left over.

I'm way ahead of myself of course, my husband keeps saying, 'can we get a staircase and window in first before we start thinking about decor!' Of course not!
