Flora and Fiona will be discussing the making of a home at Christmas, and sharing ideas on how to set the stage to celebrate this coming together. Through the use of traditional festive elements, the layering of fabrics and the bringing together of your favourite decorations old and new, they will impart some invaluable tips on how to bring your home to life during the festive season.
Flora’s first book, The One Day Box, published by Rizzoli is inspired by the concept of a ‘One Day Box’—a place, real or imaginary, where we store fragments of our past that spark a feeling of connection— it explores the meaning of home as seen through her eyes and those of her family, as well as the sentiments evoked by much loved objects during seminal moments in her life.
Flora Soames founded her business in 2009 and launched an acclaimed collection of fabrics, wallpapers and home accessories in 2019. Informed by her background in art and furniture, her distinctive style exudes the traditional charm of English country homes while incorporating modern, original touches that are comfortable and design-led. This embrace of old and new—along with Flora’s passion for collecting, heritage, colour, and pattern—has resulted in an impressive portfolio of projects in the UK and beyond.
