Decorex 2018 is one of my favourite shows.
Its a brilliant opportunity to meet with design professionals, say hello to my suppliers, bump into people and above all see the next trends and ideas. There are such a range of exhibitors that many cater to high end residential projects but lots are great for home staging professionals like myself.
My highlights are the ceramics I saw, as well as a jungle and leopard theme which I love – from grown up styling to kids rooms. Next to the interior design classics e.g Nicolas Haslam, were designers launching their pieces too.
Along with the glossy furniture makers, I really love the more crafts and hand made, small businesses and Future Heritage as well as the Meet The Makers area too. In the Future Heritage area Kaori Tatebayashi caught my eye with her incredible detailed ceramics.
I noticed a lot more of the natural world in the design – Another Country caught my eye for its craft, I particularly loved the dining table and chairs, which I could see in a Fulham house looking great!
Hayche is a current favourite too for their bright colours and natural .
Along with the more contemporary crafts, were the heritage of Watts of Westminster which I love as I have a thing for heritage and antiques.
The entrance at Decorex has several room sets and these were pretty cool too. I love the work of Susie Suss who I also saw at Holiday House when she designed a teenagers room, and her style is so distinctive. The heart emoji just jumps out at you!
This one was designed by Henry Prideaux and what’s not to love? The blue – big fan of the scalloped lampshade, beautiful, the classical artwork and hessian wallpaper, tick tick tick…
Loved too the Bethan Gray
