Interior Design Masters star Siobhan Murphy has designed a new range of homewares for Freemans
Fabulously flamboyant Castleford-based style queen Siobhan Murphy wowed the judges during the first series of the hit BBC TV show Interior Design Masters with Alan Carr. Her brilliant ideas, sense of fun and fearless approach to the use of color led her to reach the TV competition finals.
Since then, Siobhan has given up her day job as a communications officer with the NHS and her hobby has now become her career. Her design skills are in high demand and she has now launched a new homeware collection for Freermans.
It combines iconic pieces, contrasting prints and a bold use of color, and its sense of humor shines through shape and form, including iconic lips, scallops, palm leaves and exotic cats.
Richard Cristofoli, Chief Customer Officer at Freemans, said: “The range reflects our customers’ love of adventure and their passion for interiors that jump and marks the latest exciting addition to the stable of Freemans designers”, says Richard Cristofoli, Chief Customer Officer at Freemans.
Siobhan says she aims to show “how fashion and interior design can transform your life”. The range includes beautiful vases, mirrors, lampshades, plates, dishes, cups and more.
“Everything is designed to fill your home with pleasure. It’s a collection designed to brighten up your home and your day,” says Siobhan aka Interior Curve on Instagram, joins designers Julien Macdonald, Henry Holland and Abigail Aherne who also design homeware collections for Freemans, which s is reinvented as an online department store.
*Born creative, she studied fashion at Leeds College of Art but says that as a ‘tall girl’ she could never find clothes she liked, so she indulged her passion for the interiors because “then it didn’t matter if I was a size 8 or a size 18”. She is also a trained milliner.
*She continues to work on Châtelaine, her remarkable 1930s house in Castleford, which is full of quirky Art Deco features. She and her husband, Nick, bought it just over two years ago when the color palette was neutral. Now it’s anything but, and the bold interiors show Siobhan’s skill at mixing patterns and colors while capturing the spirit of the Jazz Age.
