From lampshades to picture frames, sofas, armchairs and even teapots, Whatmough revamps everything with her colourful fabrics and the result is very striking! Whatnough says it all started when she fell in love with silk from XIX century and then started her thriving design company 4 years ago. As she struggled to find large pieces of antique silk, she moved onto patchwork.
To warm up her white walls, Lisa added a beautiful vintage French farm table and customised the teapot with fabrics from Liberty, and used a psychedelic fabric from the 70s on the Italian lamp.
Opposite the table, Lisa created a colourful corner with a Victorian armchair covered with 'toile de Jouy' fabric while the ball on the floor has been covered with French fabrics from 1920. On the wall, she customised a picture frame with japanse fabrics to add the final touch to this very lively patchwork atmosphere.
Lisa says she has no limits :-) and will happily mixed Japanese and French fabrics with romantic swatches of Liberty and even striped fabrics from Paul Smith. She covered the floor lamp with orange corduroy and mixed chintz with thick cottons for her curtains.
