Hollywood Influence – From Film Roll to Roller Blinds

11 Jun


Not many textile designers can say that they have an Academy Award nomination under their belt, but Sydney based Kerrie Brown can claim just that.  Taking the influences of her 25 years as a set decorator, Kerrie has launched a dramatic soft furnishings collection which has created a limited edition range of lampshades, cushions, blinds and tableware.  Kerrie uses her research of different centuries and cultures, which she used to decorate a number or well known film sets, and fuses these together with a luminous colour palette to give original mix of “whimsy, sophistication and fun.”

Kerrie has worked with industry greats such as George Miller (on Babe), Phillip Noyce (The Quiet American), John Woo (Mission Impossible) Andrew Adamson (on The Chronicles of Narnia) and recently Guillerno Del Toro (on the soon to be released Don’t be Afraid of the Dark).


la grande tour

Botanticals, Historical cities, urns and female historical figures all provide inspirations for the prints included in Kerrie’s range…. Whatever your colour palette there is something to suit.

Roller Blinds

One of my favourites has to be the whimsical roller blinds which allow you to bring a little bit of historical architecture into even the most modern of interiors…. For example the chandelier below…

 …. or L’occupation Kitchen blinds….




The perfect way to add a little drama and or colour to your interior….

Whimsical Wallpaper

For those of you who want to go the whole whimsical hog, then Kerrie has also launched a wallpaper range…. … these are ordered by the metre and are available in wallpaper or upholstery fabric…
So whilst the big and bold may not be for everyone, those of you searching for a little whimsy can still indulge with a small piece here or there…. or maybe it is time to embrace your inner theatrical and go for the all out dramatic statement using the wall paper or lighting….
….on with the colourful journey…..

    These are all gorgeous, BCD – my favourites are the cushions and those amazing lampshades. Think I’m too much of a chicken to go for the wallpaper or even the blinds! 🙂

        Unlike our conservative mate, Sparks (ha! – I think NOT!), I favour the L’occupation Kitchen blinds. Seriously cool.
