Drawing from her own body of work, Bethan Wood, with the help of her friend Francis Upritchard and her assistant Louisa, has created miniature versions of her own designs as well as using small trinkets that reflect her style. The room is both a colourful reflection of her own home, and of the home she dreams to have.
Her inspiration for the room comes from other designers, vintage trinkets, Mexico, and everyday objects found around her house. The carpet, based on an Eley Kishimoto pattern, ties with the colourful atmosphere that Bethan has established in the room. Also adding to the unique vibe are the small sculptures of a man as well as two heads, which are smaller versions of pieces done by Francis Upritchard.
Traces from her residency in Mexico can also be seen throughout the room, like the small flowers brought back from the trip and the Guadalupe Day bed, a small scale version of a daybed design she based on the windows from the new Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe. In addition to her own works and work of other designers, Bethan looks to items found around her home to become a functioning part of the room. She turns objects like a vintage glass earring into a fruit bowl or an old private view invite into a book.
Bethan Wood is a designer who works with all different mediums ranging from furniture to jewellery. She has worked with clients like Hermes and Selfridges as well as winning many awards for her eye-catching and innovative style.
