behind the scenes

The new collection from Cole & Son is launched today, it’s called Whimsical.  Here’s a sneaky peak from behind the scenes at the photo shoot.  It was a hectic few days on location in Kent in a beautiful family home.  We transformed the rooms into magical groves, reminiscent of childhood memories and fairytales, evoking a sense of play to work with the bold and colourful wallpaper designs.

And he fitted in! (Just): wallpaper_10
