Wednesday Inspiration- we love the work of designer Libby McMullin

Be unconventional, even visionary!

The imaginary world of Libby McMullin is intricate, whimsical and beautifully detailed, as is her work.

Born in the sunshine of South Africa and educated in Devon, Libby is now based in London. Her designs are fresh and unique, influenced by folk art, fashion & fairy tales. Her style is decorative and rich, whilst maintaining a simplistic quality.
