Inspired by Susan Deliss

We were delighted to see our friend Susan Deliss featured in this month’s issue of House and Garden Magazine!

Pick up a copy and turn to page 80 to read all about her house in rural Burgundy, a truly beautiful and inspiringly decorated home.

Their eighteenth century village house has been completely renovated since they bought it 14 years ago. It was empty and neglected but is now a stunning hideaway. They drew inspiration from French country colours which they say are darker, stronger and brighter than English homes. There are beautiful and subtle tones of grey, copper, yellow, red and blue throughout. 

The house has a real eclecticism which translates elegantly through Susan's choice of subtle colours and tones, tying furnishing and objects together. Susan and her husband Max decided not to buy anything that was 'new', instead opting for items of antique furniture. The cushions and lampshades were also woven with antique cloth in the same style as Susan's own designs. Many of the paintings are by Max's father and grandfather, adding a poignant personal history to each room.   

If you loved Susan's Burgandy home as much as we did, why not take a look at her wonderful fabrics, cushions and lampshades. We particularly like her signature Ikat designs. The lampshade is made with hand gathered silk linen, while the blue and cream Ikat cushion is made with hand woven silk and cotton and its back is indigo hand dyed antique linen - two beautifully colourful items for the Summer months!
