I am always curious to see how creative people are inspired and this feature on Traditional Home left me with several ‘aha’ moments. Designer Barry Dixon lives in an Edwardian house surrounded by quiet gardens and hills. The house is full of charming details but it is the land outside that takes my breath away.
In his designs, Dixon takes inspiration from the simple things – patterns on cocoa tins, cantaloupe skins, old tree barks, china patterns. The images below remind me of how we can find inspiration everywhere around us. Colours, palettes, patterns – there are all there right in front of us, if only we open our eyes and look.
