Donna Wilson's creative home

Donna Wilson has to be one of my all-time favourite designers. Not only does she create some of the happiest textile designs around, she also helps bring good design to the the lives of others. Her recent project at the Royal London Hospital, for example, involved painting lush green murals on the walls of the children's ward for the patients to enjoy, and she is now currently working with Aberdeen residents to design a unique tartan for the Scottish county.

This creative spirit is also carried through into the designer's home where Donna mixes bold colours and clashing patterns and vintage furniture with modern accessories.

Below are a few of my highlights from her home, including a dining room filled with vintage Ercol - swoon! Head over to The Telegraph to see the full tour.

Rifle Paper Co.

If you follow me on Instagram you'll know that I recently bought some prints from one of my all-time favourite shops, Rifle Paper Co., and it was while I was happily browsing their site that I noticed they now do wallpaper.

The collection includes paper printed with pineapples, zebras, fluro peonies and famous city landmarks among other things, so it definitely gets the thumbs up from me! Take a peek and let me know which is your fave. (You probably won't be surprised to find out that the pineapple paper is mine!)
Pineapple in Sorbet
Pineapple in Sorbet
City Toile in Parchment and Robin's Egg
Rosa in Indigo
Safari in Hunter and Blush
Peonies in Yellow
There's four colour combos for each print and you can buy 8.5" x 11" samples for $5 each - but, be warned, shipping to the UK is not cheap.

Shop the full collection at Rifle Paper Co.
