I am now back at work, having had the summer off to have my baby boy Yoä. Leaving my business for a few months was hard as I knew I would miss the work and pace… and also the laughs, however meeting Yoä for the first time was truly amazing and I have enjoyed these last few months off being at home with Yoä and my partner Kevin as a family.
Our Happy Baby Boy
Home life has still been just as fast moving for us, having recently moved home as well as having a new baby… but now this means that eventually and between dealing with Luxus Clients, I can put my stamp on the new place with new room schemes.
Leaving Luxus in the hands of my trusty business partner Ian along with Sam and our Designer Gemma has been a great reassurance. The team have been constantly run off their feet throughout the summer months with both existing and new clients. It is great to be back at the Luxus studio and working with the brand new collections, which have been launched for this Autumn Winter. It is also great to be getting stuck into projects which have been developing throughout the last year as well as brand new enquiries.
Whilst on maternity I have been keeping up with what was happening in the interiors world and visited Chelsea Harbour in London a couple of times to look at new collections and visited Decorex at Syon Park, Richmond to meet suppliers and be inspired by what is new! Armed with shopping lists from clients I found some fab accessories and pieces to style settings. We will be photographing our recent projects shortly to showcase a few of these for you to see.
From the names in interiors! for this season I especially love the new collection from Zoffany this year and their Phaedra Collection, with metallic and textured vinyl wall coverings in blues, coppers, golds and earthy colours.
The Zinc Textile Collections - Andromeda, Casino & Esacape Wallcoverings
Earlier this year we had the Zinc textile launch, which never fail to impress us and we enjoy using these fabrics and wallpapers in abundance for our clients. I'm quite keen on using the marbled effect or chevrons as accent patterns in design schemes at the moment and mixing with different depths of velvets and chenille textures. For this Zinc Textile have the perfect selections. Now with these tools to hand in our studio I am enjoying creating schemes for clients and am happy to be back with my team!
"I have worked with Pippa for a few years now and would certainly recommend her. It didn't take her long to understand my tastes and she is able to pick things out for me knowing I will like it. She is very skilled in the ability to put together design schemes and I have been really happy with the transformations in my home."

"We have known Pippa and Ian for a short while, but in that time they have been honest, loyal and committed. Both are very intuitive and seem to know straight away our preferences and style. They have transformed our home into a showcase. We are delighted and will continue to work with them on future projects."
