English textile designer Mimi Pickard takes a completely bespoke approach to her fabrics and wallpapers; she designs and prints them herself creating a wonderfully distinctive character that could never be achieved with mass production.
Inspired by the artists and members of the avant-garde Bloomsbury Group, Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, who painted virtually every surface in their home Charleston Farmhouse, creating a home full of colour and art. Mimi’s range of fabrics and wallpapers uses a range of colours that sit beautifully with each other, enabling endless ways of building a scheme that mixes colour and pattern in any way you wish.
“I want my designs to emulate the natural and almost naïve feel the Bloomsbury decorative style created, as well as having a strong sense of colour and shape. Many of them have been developed using texture and collage with a strong influence from the English countryside.”
There are three collections – Charlie, Lily and Jack (named after Mimi’s children) and all fabrics and wallpapers are printed in England.
