Paint inspired by the Ashmolean, wallpaper inspired by furniture and a gorgeous glossy console. These are the products that caught my eye this week
Graphenstone’s new Treasured Collection paints (shown above) were inspired by artefacts found in the Ashmolean museum. There are 16 complimentary shades ranging from the burnt orange of maple wood used by master violin maker Antonio Stradivari to the vibrant teal of the feathers in John Ruskin’s Study of a Kingfisher.
Graphenstone is a natural, breathable paint suitable for both residential and commercial use.
Trellis is the latest design from Lincrusta. The versatile pattern was inspired by the intricately glazed doors of classic furniture by the likes of Chippendale and Sheraton.
Lincrusta is a natural wallcovering made in the UK from linseed oil. The embossed wallcovering is supplied in a natural finish giving you a blank canvas to create your own paint effects.
The Revolve automated curtain pole is new from QMotion. The aluminium rod features a grooved spiral which, when rotating, allows the drapery hook to move across the track to open or close the curtains. Revolve rods are available in five different finishes and can be operated by a hand-held remote control.

Interior designer Veere Grenney’s collection of handcrafted pieces for The Lacquer Company includes a console and bedside table as well as trays, paper bin and a mirror. Veere chose the colours specifically for each piece so that they can work within a scheme or provide a high gloss, decorative highlight.
With a typically English understated elegance, these lacquer pieces have been designed to be not only beautiful but eminently useful additions to any room.
