Excursion Eddie's family has lived on the same estate in North Wales for 700 years, right on the tip of the northern peninsula with coast on three sides — it's spectacular, if a little wet and windy. In the Georgian period, one of his ancestors built a beautiful house in which his family still live, surrounded by the ocean on the north, south and west sides, with farmland to the east. Once lockdown restrictions eased, we were lucky enough to visit his parents there this summer. Getting out of London and being able to go somewhere so remote was just perfection. You can be completely off-grid. On more is more I love that my house is an example of zero restraint on my part when it comes to the wallpapers. I have hung wallpapers or stretched wallcoverings on almost every available surface. The result is happy and vibrant. I'm fascinated by color and the power it has to transform one's mood; wallpapers give so much soul and character to a space. We also have amazing protective finishes that ensure they're toddler and puppy friendly. My children adore their bedrooms, and the hand-painted scenes of African savannahs and coral reefs spark their imaginations every day. Current events The opening of our latest Beirut showroom was interrupted first by the lockdown and, more recently, by the terrible blast within the city. The beautiful imagery of the interior taken in March is now a poignant reminder of the very particular magic of the location. I fell under the spell of the city when I visited in March, and I'm so glad that I made that trip. Our colleagues there are thankfully all okay, but what they have been through is unimaginable. We have a project underway to contribute to repairing some of the city's cultural heritage sites.
