“Designers Guild are one of our favourite suppliers because of their amazing colour palette and co-ordinating ranges” – Ali cary
To find out more about interior design and speak to the Cotton Mills team in person, make sure to seek out their stall at this year’s Home Show where they will be displaying a Designers Guild room set. “We’re looking forward to exhibiting at the Home Show this year and have designed our stand to reflect one of Designers Guild’s room sets,” says Cotton Mills founder and interior designer, Ali Cary. “As with all interior projects, forward planning is an essential part of the success of your scheme, it also helps you stay on track.”
The dedicated Cotton Mills team is passionate about design and offer a knowledgeable and friendly service to help you with your interiors project – whether it’s supplying fabrics, making curtains or blinds, or creating a tailored interior scheme for you.
“Designers Guild are one of our favourite suppliers because of their amazing colour palette and co-ordinating ranges,” Ali says. “This makes it easy to put a well-designed scheme together that doesn’t look too contrived and achieves an effortless look. We are using fabrics and wallpaper from the new spring and summer collections to create this fresh and vibrant scheme, which is built up of various shades and textures. Maintaining a mono palette also helps to curate a calm interior as it’s tonal rather than contrasting.”
When it comes to furnishing your home, starting with a mood board is a great way of putting your ideas on paper and building your dream interior. Using images from Pinterest, magazine cuttings or a favourite painting will help get you the look you want. You need no skill for this, but the Cotton Mills team can show you some tricks of the trade at one of the Free Mood Board workshops in the new shop, so make sure to stay up to date with workshops and announcements on the Cotton Mills website and social media.
