Thanks to this blog, I’ve gotten to know multi-award winning Interior Designer Lisa Todd, who is also a neighbour of mine too here in Windsor. You can read my Wonderful Women interview too.
Lisa is the recipient of the Elle Decoration British Design Award 2016 and European Product Design Award 2017.
Her statement pieces adorn every corner of our home and add colour, vibrancy and bags of personality (Lisa’s and mine!) to proceedings whether it’s a bold and eco-friendly tray or statement cushion son the sofa that are as comfortable as they are stunning!
Lisa’s passion for design led to a degree from Middlesex University London and a 20 year international career. An accident forced a change of direction and her love of painting, colour and pattern-making came to the fore.
Her pieces are vivid, original and mesmerising.
Each design is painted by hand in Windsor before being printed onto natural cottons, linens and velvets using state-of-the-art technology in the UK. The printing methods reproduce and enhance the hand-painted quality of the image and complete both a contemporary and a traditional interior.
I couldn’t imagine our home without her pieces. They make a house a home. And look at how fabulous Lisa’s home is. More on this epic owl in a moment…
But first, I love nothing more than enjoying my Earl Grey from her Kingfisher bone china mug (£15) in bed placed on her Dolly Mixtures Scandinavian Birchwood Tray (£45) (with organic melamine finish which is also dishwasher proof and water resistant no less) to get my morning off to the right start.
You can browse the striking cushion selection here.
Lisa didn’t know I was writing this post and simply gifted me these gorgeous pieces over the years, out of the kindness of her heart. She even sent me a get well card she designed.
And just look at her magnificent owl as part of the Owls of Bath 2018’s interactive sculpture trail where 80 plus supersized owls will nest in Bath from 25th June to the 10th of September for charity!
I wanted to surprise her with the piece on her birthday today. Happy Birthday lovely Lisa and congratulations on your incredible collection and bringing so much joy to the world through your art!
