Home Inspiration 4

She designed her first Valentine’s heart made of driftwood, when she was managing a designer interiors store in Dartmouth in 2001. And the story goes that within 30 minutes of it going on show, it sold.

In 2007, she was commissioned to make five large sculptures for fashion designer Julien Macdonald.

She now designs some of her work, but because of the rareness of driftwood and the physical work involved, she had to start outsourcing production - her 'deisgned by' range. Karen Miller sells through her website, but I also saw some of her work on not in the highstreet on-line shop.

And still I may not be able to buy it. This time it is not the price that is stopping me, but the theme of our new rooms. If we had a beach house (even small), I would have the whole lot, but in London surbubia... Hmmm not sure... Although since I have set my eyes on this little item, I am sure I could fit that little item for Christmas. What do you think?


  1. Oh, definitely. It looks so classy!

  2. Lovely! I'm loving all of your inspirations!

  3. I must have missed this post. This looks amazing, I really like the heart on the first pic.

    There's plenty of driftwood on the beaches of Wales. I never thought they could make such nice decorating. Some people are really clever!
