Carly

Designer

What design are you most proud of?

Probably Pindorama and Amazonia from Tropics collection, I have seen them on Instagram, not just on the walls, but also used for upcycling projects which is very interesting!

My style at one point was the photographic florals, so some of my favourite designs are Momoka or Charlotte, which I believe it did really well at the beginning.

 

What is the best bit of your job?

I think doing something that you’re really passionate about and that you really enjoy. But also doing something you’ve been trained to do; I feel like I have accomplished what I wanted to do.

On day to day basis I think the best thing about it is the team that I work with. Because we all work together so well and even on stressful days the thought of coming in and doing your work is good, because everyone else comes and gears you up and gets you through the day. We have a very good banter, laughs, giggles and take the mic out of each other!

 

You spend your days designing products for people's homes, how does your home look from a design perspective?

Because I live in what used to be a mill, I have brick ceilings and exposed pipes so it’s quite industrial. I really like mono, so everything in the house is black and white with a little bit of colour. 

Even on what I wear, I really like black - I think that is a designer thing! 

 

What Netflix series are you currently watching?

At the moment I’m watching Mindhunter, which is about a serial killer. I really like the crime dramas, documentaries, all a bit gritty... I’m not very much a comedy girl, but then I also watch The Crown!

 

Finish this sentence. On Sunday mornings, you can usually find...

In bed, chilling!

 

What would be your personal motto?

Keep calm and carry on.

 

Beatles or Stones?

Neither.
