About English Decoratives
Fine hand painted murals, silks and wallpapers for luxury interiors
English Decoratives by Diane Marsland is a design studio that provides hand painted custom designed murals, silk panels for drapes, wallpapers or other interior accessories, cushions, wallhangings, bed throws.
The studio can also provide individual art pieces to complete an interior project. All the hand painted pieces are bespoke and therefore distinguishes the artwork from the mass produced equivalent. No two pieces are ever the same and commissioned pieces take into consideration the clients brief in detail. Most often the artwork is interior led and designed and coloured with this in mind.
For the printed Collection, every design and colour way has been painted and styled by hand then translated for print on high quality textiles and papers. Diane believes that painting the pieces first enables her to plan in detail the scale, and colours while working with the trends or more traditional spaces.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER AND DESIGNER
Diane’s work has been described as beautiful, whimsical, decorative and intricate. Painterly and flamboyant with a stunning colour palette. Sometimes subtle, sometimes quirky and always unique with the wow factor. Clients often point out that her work needs to be seen to be believed and because of this digital age they also cannot believe that the bespoke pieces are all totally hand painted.
All these descriptions illustrate the varied portfolio which Diane creates for the English Decoratives as she is as comfortable creating artwork from classic archive style florals to impressionistic techniques and most recently oriental chinoiserie styles. Skills which perhaps have been lost in recent years and was one of the reasons she wanted to launch the brand in 2017.
A new brand but firmly built on a foundation of Diane’s experience, love and dedication to creating beautiful artwork and championing the traditional hand painting techniques of pattern design for varied styles of interiors.
Entitled the English Decoratives to celebrate English Eclectic style. A love of nature, flowers and gardens. Influenced by history, global decoration and modern day trends and perhaps cherry picking and mixing all of this up if the mood appeals.
