House & Garden brought their magazine to life and opened their first pop-up shop in London’s Bloomsbury between the 17th and 30th October. Curated by Decoration Editor, Gabby Deeming, the shop was a perfect opportunity to showcase one-off designs and artisanal home furnishings from an array of designers, including Jessica Light, David Seyfried, Bernard Thorp, Viola Lanari and Cambridge Imprint.
A firm favorite of the Wild Card Homes and Lifestyle team, Bernard Thorp is one of Europe’s leading designers and manufacturers of fabric and wallcoverings, who embraces traditional values to produce custom printed fabrics. The vibrant colours and bold patterns make these fabrics a perfect addition for any home.
Cambridge Imprint featured a stylish range of artisan printed paper, perfect for crafts or wrapping. The paper is printed using a lithography process, where the prints are printed on matte paper using vegetable-based spot colours, all of which are hand mixed.
A perfect stocking filler for Christmas is ‘The Secret Lives of Colour’ by Kassia St Clair, who also writes for The Economist, Elle Decoration and 1843. The Secret Lives of Colour tells the unfamiliar stories of the 75 most captivating shades and how they tell the story of our culture. After the huge success of the first pop-up shop, we are already looking forward to the next!
