Karen Horne of Beltaine Designs features just a few of her choices from this autumn’s new Collections and her past commissions

As a nation, we Brits are, to say the least, obsessed with our homes, and as a result, our Interior Design industry is one of the best in the world.  Personally, I think nobody does it better!

As we enter the latter part of the year, we are into the Autumn Collections – time to be delighted and inspired by the wonderous new interior furnishing goodies coming our way in the world of Interior Design.

Yes, it is Focus / 18 – the world-class event at the Design Centre in Chelsea Harbour, London , where new products are launched by the best in the business.

As an Interior Designer, I start to get shivers of anticipation in August, and then quite carried away, once I start receiving previews of the gorgeous new fabric, wallpaper and passementerie collections.  So much to take in, and so little time! 

Sometimes the vast array of sumptuous material is a touch daunting for many of us………..TOO MUCH CHOICE!!  Naturally, having a steady and knowledgeable Design professional to turn to can be a great benefit.  We do the hard work tracking down that perfect fabric for your antique dining chairs, or finding the ideal lamp to cast a warm glow on that upstairs landing……..

Home Testimonial - Alison Sims, Hunts Barn

The communication and care that we have received from Butler Sherborn has been second to none and we have no hesitation in recommending them. We have been very impressed by the company's standards not only during the process but also following our move.
