Orla Kiely

Although Orla Kiely’s career started in fashion – designing retro style hats and bags, she later moved on to homewares, and collaborated with the likes of John Lewis and Harlequin to create a full house offer; bedding, rugs, cushions and – best of all – wallpaper. Orla Kiely singlehandedly brought retro into the minds of the young designers of the world, and brought back colour into the households across the globe.

Catherine Widawska

Catherine Widowska and her husband grew up in a Polish family of architects, so it’s no wonder they went on to change interior design ideas. Focussing on creating bold, bright and futuristic looks, the pair styled out their own apartment to showcase their work – going on to win a number of awards. The Widowskas really brought to life the interior; creating a spacious and airy feel that still had a huge sense of welcoming homeliness. Spaces were carefully divided according to purpose, which is something that has gone on to inspire some of the best open space living areas in the world.

Nancy Lancaster

Nancy Lancaster is known for essentially creating the ‘country home’. With heating, warming colours and even carpeted bathrooms, she brought the house into the new century and provided families with a rich sense of home life. With elegant designs that have become true classics, Lancaster’s name in history was set. In her later career, she went onto to buy the timelessly classic brand Colefax & Fowler, which is still loved today.

Ray Eames

Moving further towards the present day Ray Eames and her husband are best known for their creation of the Eames chair – a design that’s recently come right back into fashion and seems to be here to stay. Their stylish wooden legs, and lounger chairs were a statement piece and were replicated in a number of bold and trendy colours.

Dorothy Draper


If this picture isn’t giving you enough information, Dorothy Draper was an American interior designer who was ‘anti-minimalist’ and built her career around her flamboyant use of colours and patterns. She is known for creating the ‘ Hollywood Regency’ style and her flagstone hotel – The Greenbrier – is one of her best known pieces of work. The historical landmark hotel was given a new lease of life with Draper’s designs – bringing in black/white floor tiles, oversized prints and Baroque plasterwall.
