With an eclectic eye and maximalist attitude – discover Alice’s distinctive approach to decorating her bedrooms and bathrooms at her home in Somerset using the fabrics, wallcoverings, cushions and trims from her new interiors collection with Romo.
"The Mimi velvet, one of my favourites from the collection, was used to upholster my bed. It’s a timeless motif and as it is so versatile it lends itself so well for being the starting point when layering a room with colour and pattern.
I love the proportions of my bedroom – with the huge french windows and high ceiling - we had the bed specially made for the space. It’s so big it’s hard to find sheets that fit!"
"Colourman paints mixed the soft pink on the walls specially for me – it's the perfect pink. Soft, feminine with an antique, aged feel.
The curtains are in the Lavinia Embroidered Jacquard – florals and leopard are one of my favourite combinations which I return to season after season in my ready to wear collections."
The Disco Ball Bathroom
"This is my sanctuary – where I go to escape and unwind. The light is magical in this room, reflecting off my disco bath in the morning and at sunset. About ten years ago a friend and I decided to break up a mirror and cover the bath in the fragments - it took a lot longer than we thought it would but it was worth it.
I wanted to create a space that had a French boudoir feel about it – a playful combination of the bold leopard and the ultra feminine pinks and florals. The Mimi flocked wallcovering was a must - and we used the pink Freida velvet in Vintage Rose for the curtains, adding the matching trellis trim to the top to add texture and detail."
"I upholstered my vintage chair in the Bonita velvet – mixing the leopard with the florals is the perfect example of how you can layer so many elements from the collection.
My vintage rugs, giant clam shell and disco balls are pieces I love and have collected over the years. The Union Jack plinth adds some playfulness and humour to the space."
"A heady print that tells a story of parasol wielding leopards and mischievous, swinging monkeys in a world of chinoiserie inspired scenes.
Euphoria is a utopia of playful expression, giving permission to let go of reality and explore new wonderlands that give free reign to creativity."
The Euphoria Bathroom
"This bathroom is connected by a small staircase from my bedroom and is directly below my bathroom. I wanted it to feel French, masculine yet decadent. I found the vintage chandelier, wall lights and Venetian mirrors in antique shops and markets.
The colour palette of the Euphoria wallcovering works with the painted check floor detailing which we created using Colourman paints."
The Guest Bedroom
"This is a guest room so I wanted it to be a calm, quiet space. We chose the Delilah wallcovering – it’s a playful motif but in a muted colour palette.
The metallic base gives an unexpected richness and decadence. We used the leopard Saskia jacquard weave for the bed canopy – the ideal coordinate that brings the room together."
