Marina has been working in the interior design and curtain making business for over 30 years and is the owner of Honeysuckle.
I love eye catching and eclectic design that adds a bit of individual personality, glamour, and style. I like a fusion of classic and modern. A reworking of the new and traditional to create a look that says - this is me.
I love the ethos behind art nouveau Period the arts and craft movement that kicked back against industrialisation. The quality of the handmade - the flowing elegant organic lines. The range that we stock which most represents this is William Morris from style library especially the pure collection
Equally - I love the Art Deco movement which embraced from the 1920s to the 1950s Art Deco was infused by Art Nouveau but embraced a stronger more stylised look using highly contrasting colours and incorporates chrome and black. I love Art Deco lighting and mirrors. And of course, my absolute favourite- anything with Stylised Blue Birds on of course.
Marina has been working in the curtain making business for 33 years.
I would say my style is calm industrial. I love muted colours and non-fussy fabrics, with calm almost geometric patterns. I also like using natural raw materials like wood, leather, brick, and black metal in a scheme.
I love everything Andrew Martin and Everything from the William Morris Pure collections. I also like the muted paint colours from both Sanderson and Zoffany. My whole house is painted in half/quarter harbour grey and my bedroom is painted in Green Stone.
I think your home should reflect your own taste and style and not to follow fashion, choose colours and styles to suit you and your home. That way you will love your new interior for years.
My style is one of modern country with a love of rich winter colours and texture. Mix patterns, checks and florals to make your home feel interesting and cosy. Use accessories, throws and cushions to give a relaxed welcoming feel to a room.
I love the ranges from Jane Churchill, Sanderson, Lewis and Wood, Colefax and Fowler with a touch of Romo.
My interiors style is one of a contemporary style using simplicity, subtle sophistication, deliberate use of texture, and clean lines.
Think of a neutral setting as a great starting point to bring in hints of colour and geometric pattern to give your room more personality.
By starting with a classic natural base, it is then easy to ring the changes by adding new soft furnishing to keep your room fresh and up to date.
My favourite ranges are Romo, Sion, Harlequin and Clarke and Clarke to name a few.
