I was very lucky to be asked to design a room in the 'Wool House' this year- which is on right now in Somerset house on the Strand. Organized by the campaign for wool, a whole wing of the house has been transformed into a wool house, with every room an exquisite example of how you can decorate and use wool. As you all know I have always loved using wool in my work, and am really fond of this warm, versatile natural material. I love the fact that it takes due so well, so you can get an amazing array of colour. I love the fact that you can felt it and it changes form, and I love being able to create a piece of fabric from a single strand of it. The room I was asked to design was the nursery which was very appropriate. We got our fantastic felt supplier Wernekinck- from Holland to supply the beautiful felt walls, which are so cosy and tactile. We applied the trees and leaves. Wool is naturally flame resistant, and a great insulator so I think a very good idea for a wall covering. The bed was covered in Bute fabric and made by Vi-spring, The quality was divine! I just wish I had a nursery like this!
It's only on for a short time, so if you get a change and are interested in wool, go and have a look!
