On Saturday 29th June, Compton Verney Art Gallery & Park will be hosting its very first Home & Garden Show - and I will be there as a guest speaker giving a talk on Curating The Home!


The talk will be at 1pm and will discuss the process of creating a home that represents its inhabitants through thoughtful design. I’ll be talking about sustainability, art sourcing, trends and design philosophy and psychology.

Curating a home is about using design as a form of self-expression, in a conscious and considered way. It’s about the journey and discovery of each item or element – the chair found in the skip, the piece of art collected on holiday, the side table passed down through the family. It’s about using what you have and up-cycling while also discovering new artists and designers to support.

I’m so excited to be delivering this talk at such a historic venue at an event full of local artisans from across the region offering everything from handmade furnishings and bespoke upholstery. And I’m even more excited to say that I have one Family Day Ticket (2 adults, up to 4 children) up for grabs! All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is head to our instagram and follow the instructions. If you don’t have an instagram account, you can simply email us to enter.

Competition closes at midnight on the 25th and winner will be announced on Wednesday 26th!

It should be a fantastic local day out and the weather is looking great, so hopefully I will see some of you there! Come and say hello!
