Designers Guild - Website Review

Designers Guild for Designer Wallpaper, Fabrics, Blankets and Throws, Kids Bedding and Fragrant Gifts

I've always been a fan of Tricia Guild's designs - and although I love calming neutrals and crisp white (and they are there as well) there's something about her signature uplifting colour palette and modern, though 'perfect-for-everyone' collection of fabrics, wallpapers and gifts that wins me over every time. I say 'perfect-for-everyone' because I bet that none of you can pay a visit to her online or offline store and not fall in love with at least one thing.

Before I go on I'll admit that there are elements of the site I would prefer to see tweaked, however the colours and photography are some of the best anywhere, making it easy to get up close and personal to every single product - something that a lot of online retailers miss out on - that if they want us to buy we need to practically be able to touch everything.

There's a swatch service for her fabrics and wallcoverings, beautiful bedlinen, kids bedding, pretty towels and washbags, wonderfully packaged candles, stationery sets and blankets, throws, quilts and cushions in a rainbow of colours.

The more I look the more certain I am that I'm going to be doing all my girly Christmas shopping here - another problem solved then.

Take a look at for what's latest and best on the web.
