There’s less than 2 weeks to go until I’m back in Manchester for Sale Arts Trail… And of course I’ll be bringing lots of colourful home accessories & giftware with me!

Just a little heads up… The Notonthehighstreet.com Summer Sale has just kicked off and with it there’s up to 50% off a selection of my home and giftware. So, now’s your chance to grab that long-lusted after item at a reduced price!

A few weeks ago I travelled to Holly Booth’s sunny studio in Derby, to shoot some lifestyle photos of my fabrics and home accessories with her. The images are now in and I’m delighted to share a few with you.
Don’t they look fantastic?!
Huge thanks go to Holly, who was a pleasure to work with. She did a fab job photographing my colourful range and helping me style each set! Another special thank you goes to Curtains by Julia, who made the beautiful blinds and curtains featured.
I’m so pleased with the photographs and think they capture the vibrancy of my collection perfectly! Hurray!
I recently acquired a lovely antique screen and knew straight away it would make the perfect accessory for displaying some of my fabrics, as well as being a great addition to my new home. I’m due to move in a few months time, so I set to work giving it an Annabel Perrin makeover. I’m pleased to share the before and after shots with you now.
The screen had been re-upholstered but it was a little rough around the edges, as you can see! I spent hours stripping down layers of fabric and removing countless staples and tacks – most of which were rusty and rather stubborn! But I was eventually left with a good sturdy frame to work with. After adding a layer of calico to support my fabric, I began to re-cover the frame in some of my own designs.
I chose four fabrics that I think look brilliant and bold together – Spectrum, Imperial Diamond Mono, Flowerpress and Glasshouse and a bright orange trim to frame the patterns (and hide the tacks of course!).
What do you think? I’m delighted with it and cant wait to show it off at future shows and also in my new house!
It’s time for me to take a little break for Christmas and New Year. Keep your eyes peeled for details of my Winter Sale, which will be kicking off soon – It’s going to be my biggest one yet!
Until then, I’d like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for 2016! x
