The Sophie Robinson Collection by Harlequin

Pink room uishzs

“Soft, lazy, unruly…” is how interiors expert, Sophie Robinson describes her home in East Sussex. She has just launched her latest collaboration with Harlequin, part of The Sanderson Design.  

Delving deep into Sanderson’s archive, the collection is bursting with joyful wildflower motifs and saturated hues. Sophie describes how she transformed a wish-list of patterns and fabrics into a reality; playing with scale, bringing together blousy florals with ditsy prints, and adding in geometrics and stripes for maximalist pattern clashing.  

There are five separate colour stories to work with which can be combined or, as Sophie puts it, ‘cross-polinated’. She suggests taking a hero piece as a starting point and playing with the rich, multi-layered colour palette to create a design which suits you as an individual, or as a family.  


Sophie’s Design tips: 

It’s true! Matching fabric and wallpaper is back in vogue  

Think about how you want to feel in your bedroom. Greys and whites will make the mood calm and relaxed but if you want the space to make you feel fabulous think about a bolder scheme of vibrant colours to feel “a million dollars”. 

Layering texture adds to a scheme. Within the range, the Wiggle design fabrics look hand-embroidered and add dimension to your accessories.  

Use all the patterns you want – stripes, geometrics, florals – but with a tight colour palette. A piece or artwork or wallpaper can be your jumping-off point to give you the confidence to extrapolate chosen colours and build your scheme.  

In addition, Sophie Robinson and Harlequin have developed a vibrant range of nature-inspired homeware perfect for Christmas gifts available at John Lewis. This new collection of ready-made curtains, cushions, bedding, towels, and bathrobes presents a juxtaposition of archive and abstract pieces in Sophie’s signature colour palette.

So, spare a thought this Christmas to the unsung heroes of the transport industry whose workplace is the often-dangerous UK road network. Cut 'white van man' some slack; they have probably still got 85 more parcels to deliver and it's seven o’clock at night.
