MULBERRY - THE WARM AND THE COOL

INTERIOR STYLINGClaire Delmar

METHOD
Eyes can be drawn to colour almost immediately. You may even find that colour has the ability to dictate how we feel. Colours are universal, symbolic and powerful. They are seen by some and felt by others. How beautiful would it be to capture this atmosphere in your own home?

When styling a table, you can distinguish colour through almost anything and even though viewing colour is an extremely subjective process, they can work in every aspect of your styling decisions. Take a look at these images for example. There are different shades of colour in the background, table cloth, the objects on the table and they mould together effortlessly. What I hope this portrays is an intricate simplicity. Two overall colours, one warm and one cool, that blend and intertwine. The lightness of the blue shades and the depth of the shades of red create a harmony that can be present in any home. The pieces on the table collaborate in their space, forming many enjoyable focal points for the eye. They are organised in a creative structure that emphasises their individuality, whilst demonstrating their collaboration. Look for objects that may seem unusual, that have a touch of quirkiness about them. Placing them in the same space can create a unique atmosphere, that can make your table ever so inviting.

STYLING A CREATIVE HOME

For a home already bursting with personality it was a pleasure for Studio Delmar to further layer the family home of artists Edward Waring, Susan Hipgrave and their daughter Nina for the multiple page Vogue Living article.

Working with the redesigned home by late interior architect Brian Keirnan and a backdrop of the owners artworks, eclectic art collection and bold coloured furniture we played on the fun yet contemporary aesthetic.


Modern furniture with vintage characteristics were brought in alongside a collection of organic and linear formed ceramics to compliment the architectural spaces. Adding to the creativity of the home a sculptural potted plant adds to the playfulness and ties in with Susan’s botanical ceramic drawings.

Owner and artist Susan Hipgrave’s exhibition “It’s a Jungle Out There” is currently being held at the Arthouse Gallery.
