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……..
