‘Dawn Chorus Noir’ Wallpaper by Pearl Lowe for Woodchip & Magnolia.

Room of the month // @Beauvamp
By Nina Tarnowski on March 01, 2020

Room of The Month comes from Alice Moylan, the passionate founder and designer of vibrant British lighting brand BeauVamp.

We spotted her small room makeover on her Instagram account: @beauvamp using our Pearl Lowe Dawn Chorus Noir Black Wallpaper and love the way it has transformed a small space into a style haven.

We spoke to Alice, about her signature style, her gorgeous lamps and her own partnership with Woodchip & Magnolia design partner Pearl Lowe.
 

What did you want to achieve with your renovation?

I wanted to give our small washroom as big an impact as possible and so wanted a classic but bold design. I love the chinoiserie style and this seemed to tick all the boxes with the colours. I was looking for moody with a twist and the English garden blooms and birds were a perfect combination.
 

Can you explain your signature home style?

I live in a period Georgian home and my style is definitely eclectic. I’m drawn to anything old with a bit of history but I like to jazz it up a bit with a contemporary twist. So perhaps William Morris wallpaper with an Ercol chair or set of tables.
 

What inspired you to pick Dawn Chorus? What attracted you to it?

Well I’d recently collaborated with Pearl Lowe on the lampshades and knew of her collection, so I’d had my eye on this design for a while.

How does the finished room make you feel?

I love it, it’s nice to have a totally finished room, no matter how small.
 

How does the wallcovering work with your existing interiors?

I think it works well. I have a lot of traditional William Morris wallcoverings, so the birds and flowers are a nice contrast.

What should no home be without?

Colour and a comfy sofa.
 

What’s your favourite month?

September, it’s my birthday!

 Beauvamp // Woodchip & Magnolia London Design Fair 2018
 

What’s your favourite colour?

Tricky, there are so many, I’m always drawn to blue, especially teal.
 

Favourite flower?

Magnolia
 

Finally, name three Woodchip & Magnolia products you love?

I love your new wall murals, especially the ‘Sunrise’, ‘Zephyr’ and ‘Oasis’ murals; if only I had a wall big enough!!

Pearl Lowe’s Bedroom

One of our most popular colourways is the Blush Pink ‘Fondant’ silk coupled with beige and ivory fringing. So I was delighted when Pearl Lowe asked if I could make a pair to hang as bedside lights in her bedroom.
Each lampshade is hand stitched and pleated around a bespoke bronze frame and finished in a two tone fringe with gold braiding. We also supplied the vintage twisted flex and pendant accessories in antique brass. The perfect combination in Pearl’s eclectic room full of soft pinks, pastel blues, creams and green.

Susi Bellamy x BeauVamp Collaboration

BeauVamp is thrilled to announce our most recent collaboration with maximalist colour and pattern brand, Susi Bellamy. After Susi and Alice met on Instagram, it was clear that their love of combining classic design elements with daring new colour palettes was something they shared.

The two decided to collaborate on a capsule collection of lampshades combining BeauVamp’s bespoke lampshade frames and signature two tone fringing with Susi Bellamy fabrics. The Multi Blocks Grid print was selected because it has an ultra-modern edge and the designers liked the idea of combining something so fresh with such a classic style of lampshade.

 

Just look up… even the interior of the lampshade is it’s own design feature, boasting a bespoke bronze frame.

BeauVamp’s lampshades are inspired by the lighting of the early 1900s which didn’t shy away from tassels, fringing, and unusual ornate shapes. ‘We offer statement lighting for unique interiors’, complementing Susi’s philosophy of luxurious eclecticism and distinctive design.

 

The silk satin fabric has a very subtle lustre when lit from within, which really emphasises the vibrancy of colours and reinforces the delicate pleating-work that has become part of BeauVamp’s signature style. 

The lampshades are available to order from August 2019 with a lead time of 8 weeks.

New Silk Ombré Collections

Introducing the bright new Silk Collections featuring a range of plain and dip dyed silks, hand gathered and sewn onto bespoke frames.


Dip Dyed Silk

I’ve spent some time recently dip dyeing silk lampshades to match some client fabric by Matthew Williamson. More colours coming soon….


Decorative Antiques

Well it’s been pretty manic these past few months, whilst I’m still busy experimenting with the Indian silks, I’ve also been busy supplying new ‘decorative antiques’ business Bowden Knight with lampshades for their launch night, which was a huge success. They were kind enough to produce some fantastic pictures featuring their antiques alongside cushions from Bon Maison and my lampshades sitting ontop of some very nice antique brass lampstands, take a look below…..


Handwoven Silks

Hi there, just giving you a little update and sneak peek at the next batch of fabrics that I’ve fallen in love with, lots of brightly coloured handwoven Indian silks and pop bright cottons. Having a play around with mixing and matching at the moment, so many different variations, which to choose.. can’t wait to start, I will share the outcome with you shortly..
