Sometimes you meet people and feel as though you’ve known them your whole life. That’s exactly what happened when I met Anna Spiro! Having long admired the work of this talented Interior Designer, the introduction of her new textile collection was a wonderful opportunity to collaborate. Our shared passion for pattern, colour and texture combined with our individual creative inspirations harmoniously came together and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the result!
Anna launched her unique range of fabrics in September. Made exclusively by hand in Australia, the collection is first illustrated and then screen-printed onto fine Belgian Linen. They became the most inspiring starting point for the bespoke, hand crafted Heatherly pieces you’ll find in this, the first of our exciting new “Art Series’.
The first story features our Clareville bedhead in a deep blue Kahuna Anna Spiro fabric with a contrast pipe. This is teamed with a Kaka Duck Fenwick chair and Adele footstool at the end of the bed finished in the charming Anna Spiro Paniola print. This bedroom was inspired by a
recent visit to Clareville, a stunning spot north of Sydney, where the pace is slow, the boats are charming and the feeling is good!
The Luella bedhead, finished in Anna Spiro’s Leilani fabric, comes alive in this stunning bedroom where the duo’s passion for pattern, texture, layering and colour come together. This story pays homage to designers such as Anna Spiro and UK design maven Kit Kemp, who are not afraid to follow their convictions. Custom made lighting combined with a stunning shoebox are all finished in Anna Spiro’s fabrics.
The Genevieve story highlights two single beds in Anna’s Kahuna multi fabric. Perfect for girls who are sharing a room, it is a colourful and light-hearted mix of colours that can extend well beyond a young girls room into a teenage room. An opportunity to be more confident in having a bit of fun with fabric selection and colours – Kahuna teamed with Kaka Duck cushions and other stunning accessories is a great way of expressing this.
I’m so incredibly proud of this joyful collection and must say a very special thank you to those who were instrumental in this vision coming to life! Michelle of Pennington Interiors and our design house, the beyond talented Beck Simon for dressing each space to perfection and the extraordinary photographer Lisa Cohen who frames a photo like no other.
