- Getting to know the owner of Drew Decor Store
We spoke to Suzanne Drew, owner and founder of Drew Decor Store, about her love of all things interior styling related and why she decided to create a luxury interiors store right here in Sheffield. Suzanne, When did your interest in interior styling begin? In my early twenties, when I started visiting London quite often to visit my Cousin who had her own boutique clothes shop on New Kings Road. I would meet her there and she would take me to all the interior shops along that road and there was one shop in particular that I loved, called India Jane. It was set over two floors and it was packed with inspiration. I’d say that store planted the seed and the more I visited London the more I wanted my own interiors shop. Why did you decide to open Drew Decor Store? Having a passion and interest in interiors and fashion meant it made sense for me to open the shop I had dreamt about from my early twenties. My husband has his own painting and decorating business, and I could see customers travelling all the way to London to find the products they wanted. We live in such a great city and I could see that it was time we had our own luxury interiors presence, making good design much more accessible to Sheffield and the surrounding areas. I know our customers really appreciate that. Where do you like to start when you begin a new scheme for a customer? I like to choose the wallpaper first as this forms the backdrop to the room and sets the tone for the rest of the scheme. People often choose their paint first because it feels like the biggest job or most pressing one. But if you choose your wallpaper or statement pieces first, you can then be very exact with paint colour selection. This careful colour work will really make a room sing. We do a lot of colour consultancy with clients and the results are spectacular. Do you have any top tips for decorating? Get a professional to do it if you can. And decorate your home in a style appropriate for your property. You can mix traditional with contemporary if it's done correctly, again we help a lot of our customers with this. Getting that mix of old and new in the right measure makes a huge difference. How would you describe Drew Decor Store to someone from another planet? A fabulous boutique interiors shop that houses some of the best brands in the world! More personally, if you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be and why? I’d be a pine tree! The pine tree is the peacemaker, loving agreeable company and helping others. I love peace and harmony and I have an active imagination. I think in the design schemes I work on I like to create that peace and harmony for my clients whilst also giving the space an imaginative edge. If you could choose one song to play every time you walked into a room for the rest of your life, what song would you choose and why? Tough one this, but I would go for Better the Devil you Know by Kylie Minogue as I was a big Kylie fan growing up and this song always put me in a good mood. I would play it getting ready before a night out with the girls. Drew Decor Store is a small family run business with big dreams. We would love you to pop in and see our fabulous collections. We are at 910 Ecclesall Road, S11 8TR and we are open six days a week - Monday to Saturday. Beautiful is what we do best.
- Historic Royal Palaces – Great Masters by Cole & Son
I am so excited to be able to share with you the latest collection by Cole & Son who pay homage to the master artisans, craftsmen and celebrated monarchs who shaped the six iconic royal residences which are now cared for by Historic Royal Palaces. I have selected just a few of my personal favourites from this exquisite collection and talk you through each design and why it's one of my favourites. Verdure Tapestry Taken from the Flemish tradition of vast tapestry-weaving, Verdure Tapestry is inspired by a 17th century work which is currently displayed within the King’s Presence Chamber of Kensington Palace. Its verdant, pictorial scene pays homage to the richly woven, intricate tapestries that were known as 'the mobile frescoes of the North'. These impressive pieces of woven art were a canvas for master weavers’ imaginations, each landscape lavish in fanciful trees and foliage, without the traditional perspective constraints of figurative or narrative tapestries. Translated here by Cole & Son into a sumptuous panel scene, Verdure Tapestry is full of life with its abundance of rich flora and fauna. What's not to love about this show stopper, it has alot to offer from it's opulent colours to being a talking point amongst your family and friends. I can't see me ever getting bored of this design, and it will be on display inside my shop in Sheffield. Verrio Sky Combining both elements of Verrio Mirror’s trompe l’oeil pillars and arches, with Fresco Sky’s ethereal skyscape, Verrio Sky is a decadent fresco-style design showing the breadth of its inspiration’s talent. The design house creative team of Cole & Son studied the soft light and architectural precision of Antonio Verrio’s masterful hand to produce this striking design. This design will also feature inside my shop as it's sky effect background offers a sense of calm and tranquility . This would look great maybe in a Drawing room or if you have an office at home. Court Embroidery Delicately hand-painted to emulate silken hand stitches, Court Embroidery is inspired by an early 19th century waistcoat from the Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection. This courtier’s garment is a beautiful example of a time when gentlemen’s clothing was as fine, if not more elaborate, than those of a lady. Court dress was a signifier of opulence, wealth and position. Trimmings, embellishment and embroidery were often employed to provide a dazzlingly rich effect, with exquisite needlework and sumptuous fabric admired by both male and female members of court. This would look amazing in a few places like in a hallway as pictured above or a bedroom or even a downstairs toilet. King's Argent The grand baroque-style extension of Hampton Court Palace was commissioned by William III and Mary II towards the end of the 17th century to rival the great palaces of Europe. Opulence was at the heart of baroque design, with mirrors being a great luxury and a symbol of extreme wealth. King’s Argent is a reflection of this extravagant addition to the palace, a detailed series of silvered mirrored tiles covered in shadowy leaves and flower heads, its delicate etchings adding to the stately grandeur of Hampton Court’s ceremonial rooms. For me, this is for those of you that like to add a bit of glam to your home, and why not! If you would like to order a free sample of any of the designs above please visit my online store.
- How to choose wallpaper
If you have been shopping for wallpaper lately you will know that the choice can be a little overwhelming with so many styles available. Today’s article aims to help you narrow down the options in four manageable steps. Step One Think first about the category or categories you prefer: (ideally choose two categories for comparison) Linework gentle – soft and elegant – for example, Sanderson’s Elysian collection. Linework quirky - wow factor with a bit of edge – for example Emma Shipley’s Wilderie, Cole and Son’s Ardmore or Jean Paul Gaultier’s Pop Rock Collection. Geometric bold – stylish and refined – for example Cole and Son’s Contemporary Collection (Feather Fan) Geometric soft – stylish and subtle – for example Cole and Son’s Icon collection (Petite Tile). Textured soft - sensual and imaginative – for example Effinger’s Skins. Textured metallic – Atmospheric and moody – for example Today Interior’s Shiraz Collection. Painterly - light hearted, expressive, almost playful – for example Harlequin’s Zapara. Classic – Stately and timeless while making a statement – for example Sanderson’s Woodlands Walk or Chiswick Grove. Step Two If patterned, then decide on the size of the pattern, large scale, small scale or something in between. There’s no wrong or right here, it’s personal taste. Step Three Now that you have narrowed your selection, choose your colour. When you are looking at colours, think about both the background colour and the accent colours within the paper. These will also give you great leads for choosing paint colours. Step Four Order your free A4 wallpaper samples from Drew Décor Store. Stick them on the wall and look at them in different lighting conditions and at different times of day and night. And so, to summarise the steps: 1. Choose the type of pattern 2.

Picking your perfect paint When it comes to paint, there is so much choice and it can be quite difficult to narrow down the perfect paint choice, but we have the expertise to help you and put together a scheme that is tailored to your specific taste. We’ll discuss the colours you like, which colours you wear and the colours you associate with the things you love. This will help you pick out a few colours from the Zoffany and Sanderson paint stands we have in store, so that you can create the perfect colour palette for your home. Plus, all paint orders are delivered direct to your home free of charge. Contact us Keeping it simple & stylish When it comes to paint, we like to keep it really simple without compromising style. Much like wallpaper the right paint choice can absolutely transform a wall, a room, or your entire home, but we want to help you focus on what’s right for you and your home rather than present you with too many paint choices and confuse you. So we have chosen to offer paints from Sanderson and Zoffany. Well known, well respected brands that never fail to deliver. Sanderson are world renowned paint manufacturers. They have 154 colours in a selection of finishes that can be used throughout the home for multiple applications. From traditional to contemporary interiors, this timeless palette has been designed for homes where style matters.

The paint collection features bold highlight colours as well as versatile neutral shades, each one available in three finishes. Elite Emulsion, Acrylic Eggshell and Eggshell. Each finish is crafted to the highest specification and infused with superior grade pigment. For you, this means flexibility to create decor schemes across your entire home. Tips from our experts I feel that too much choice can be overwhelming so try and resist going home with endless sample pots. Also, I recommend you do not paint the tester colour onto your wall as they react to one another and to the existing colour of the wall itself. Instead I advise customers to paint a square piece of card as you can look at them in the room without the confusion of other colours, put them next to the colours you want to combine them with – those for skirting boards, window frames and the neighbouring rooms and see how they work. Neutrals and accents You have lots of options when it comes to paint. Sometimes the amount of options can seem overwhelming but we’re on hand to help every step of the way. Consider combining a main neutral shade with an accent colour, whether it’s bold or subtlety striking. Feature walls offer a great way to embrace accent shades. Highlight fixtures such as fireplaces or doors, and if painting the main wall isn’t an option, use accent colours on photo frames, chairs, drawers or cupboards as they will soon come alive with a touch of paint. Alternative ideas We strongly believe in listening to our customers to gather an understanding of exactly what they want, but when the customer is open to different ideas and different ways of addressing their project we can offer alternatives. Sometimes approaching a project from a different angle helps our customers achieve something amazing that they would never have considered. We also offer an ‘in store’ and ‘at your home’ consultation service, so that you can show us rooms that can be difficult to describe. This helps us consider the surroundings and the lighting in a way that’s invaluable.
