We have a beautiful feature in this months 25 Beautiful Homes (July 2014) about artist and textile designer, Nikky D’Aguilar
Nikky launched her fledgeling business a year ago and has been showing at all the big design shows, Country Living, Spirit of Summer.
You cannot help but fall in love with her unique loch-side home in the Loch Lomond national park: originally, two gate house cottages, now linked by a huge glazed space, resulting in an incredibly varied interior …you never know what is going to happen next!
You can spot her colourful designs all over the place. She thought to turn her paintings into textile designs when she printed one to cover an old chair, she liked the way the energy and imprefections in the fabric seemed to bring it alive.
I feel the unpredictability in the layout of her home has the same effect…the modern additions have breathed new life into the old cottages…
Her bags and scarves are very popular at the moment and can be bought online.
It was wonderful to meet Nikky and we look forward to watching her business grow…
