Recently I met with Cindy Allen, the wonderfully vibrant editor of Interior Design magazine, to be the first guest artist on their new Facebook live interview series.I must confess to being a teensy bit nervous as I’d never been “live” before but it all worked out swimmingly. Next confession: Actually I loved it. We talked about my rug collection for Perennials focusing on the process of design from my original photographs through to the finished carpets.
I’m attaching a link to the interview here… https://www.facebook.com/InteriorDesignMagazine/videos/10155726992743157/

When I’m talking about Design the main point I like to remember is the importance of making a start… which is essentially true for all of life: procrastination being the greatest hindrance to all endeavour. I’ve learnt it’s better to stumble blindly forwards as it all leads somewhere in the end: often somewhere pleasingly unexpected.

When you put a lot of work into a project its thrilling when other people like it too. So it was especially exciting to be nominated and win the jury award in the Architzer A+ awards for best design in carpeting. A very big MTS thank you to everyone who has made this possible.

Last summer we introduced a wholesale range of printed scarves and now for the fall collection we have added the “Weekend” tote in 3 patterns…. Being an “everything but the kitchen sink” kind of person I find these oversized Cotton Canvas bags now my ideal travelling companion…

Selected items from the collection will be available on the MTS web shop in October and for all wholesale enquiries and stockist information please contact Aesthetic Movement

In two weeks time I head downunder to Melbourne and Sydney where I begin work on the Rigg Prize installation at the NGV. Earlier this year I was one of ten Australians nominated for this prestigous design award… We each get to create a 450 sq foot [40 metere sq] interior space based on the theme of “Domestic Living”. It feels like a real pinnacle of acheivement for me as it unites all the areas of work I have touched upon in my life so far… something I had never dreamed of. Most thrilling is this chance to meet the wonderful group of people and become a part of this community. The show will open on October 12th.
