Tiles & Eccentrics

Years ago I styled a Gourmet shoot in an eccentric old house that is now a museum. The shoot was photographed by one of my all-time favourite photographers, Simon Watson. It is in the back paddocks of Pennsylvania next to a ceramic tile factory, and is in fact the folly of its owner. All rambling, turreted and rabbit warren-ish, it is a reflection of the dream & passion of the owners obvious obsession & love of the product he created- tiles.

I recently went on a roadtrip & visited the Mercer Museum & Fonthill Castle once more. It is as fascinating as it was the first time. My modern interpretation of this will be incorporated into my upcoming interiors. I plan to use my favourite chalky Moroccan tiles.

Rather than commit to full tiled areas, I will be creating tiled rugs to inject colour, texture & coolness under foot- & add a little of my globetrotting adventures & experiences into my interiors for all to enjoy. Here’s to more eccentrics!

I plan to seek out, discover & meet more in the future.
