Designers Guild with hip home at designersecrets

Today was workshop three at designersecrets, & fabulous it was!! We injected colour into this week's presentation, with divine inspiration with none other than the spectacular creations by Designers Guild, balanced beautifully with the wool & silk rugs by hip home, & what a warm & welcoming space they created. We were delighted to have James Marks, MD, Radford Furnishings present to both our groups, sharing snippets of his vast expertise & knowledge for the evolution of textile design. Radford Furnishings is the sole Australian distributor for some of the most successful global furnishing brands, including Designers Guild, Ralph Lauren Home, Cole & Son, Titley & Marr, Jasper Conran & William Yeoward, to name just a few.

He wowed the audience by also sharing a recent interview done in London with Trisha Guild, OBE, on the history of where she began back in 1970, to where her success has taken her today, what an inspirational woman she is. Suffice to say, we felt it appropriate to spray the room with shades of fuschia pink, mandarin & magenta. James is the penultimate professional, passionate about the world of textiles, & one of the most wonderful educational resources in the interior design industry. We could have listened to him for hours had there been the time!
'Style Secrets' were also shared this week, & it was fabulous to have such enthusiastic interaction from our wonderful groups of women. When they 'graduate' next week, we feel confident that they will feel ready to approach their respective home renovations/decorating projects with their own personal style...& perhaps with just a little help from an interior designer & or decorator!!

  1. Sounds like fun...wish I could have been there, especially the Tricia Guild interview, as I love hearing about inspirational, successful women.
