Korla's Creative Director, Jane Bonsor has been busy renovating her family home in the Buckinghamshire countryside, which at the end of last year was photographed for The World of Interiors "Modern Issue".
The English Jacobean House has been in the family since the 1920's and is now fully equipped for 21st-century family life. Jane has taken care to sympathetically preserve the original features whilst orchestrating a juggle of rooms to create a more practical layout. The aim was to remake the house as a functioning, modern home focused on the main stair and courtyard - one that was more domestically suited to the chaos of family life, children and a muddy dogs!
When the architectural layout and building work was complete, Jane did what she does best and injected colour and pattern in the form of interesting textiles. We are excited to see Korla fabrics featured, alongside our sister brands Borderline & Hazelton House.
The dining room features curtains in Hazelton House's 'Brighton', a dramatic ‘garden of paradise’ motif of exquisitely detailed foliage and brilliantly plumed birds on a natural linen ground cloth that has an elegant extravagance typical of high Victorian style. The pretty red table cloth is Borderline's 'Anna'
In the drawing room are two cushions in Hazelton House's 'Borgia', a stunning and complex abstract design hand drawn in 1929 and a fine example of the fusion of art, craft and textile design.
The master bedroom shows off two Korla designs, curtains in 'Peaks', a Hokusai-style mountain ranges design, is complimented by a statement armchair in 'Inkat'. Curtains in the twin room are in 'Asali' alongside a lampshade and cushions in our house print 'Korla'
