I am thrilled to share with you the launch of George Home, a project which has kept me busy for the last 6 months.  I worked as the Style Consultant for Photography and styling and when this was finished, I Art Directed George Home’s TV commercial (which is out this week) and can be seen here. This was a huge job but the production company for the catalogue (Hanger Seven) and for the commercial; Ad agency (Fallon) and production company (Outsider) were great to work with.  I am also extremely grateful to Asda for this creative opportunity and position of trust.

This has been a very large project but one that I am most proud of.  It is so rewarding seeing something that started as a sketch on my pin board to an image that is all over the UK.  I think the catalogue cover shot (Sea View collection, image 6 below) that I styled in London is even going to appear as an Ad campaign at Oxford Circus underground – I must take a trip down there to have a look!  Please do check out George Home items as they are so stylish and at unbelievable prices (and no, I’m not on commission)!

Pippa Jameson styling for: The Hotel Inspector

On February 6th, 2014 by .

So, the time has finally come! The first series of The Hotel Inspector airs tonight (Thursday 6th February) and I can guarantee that it’s going to make fantastic Television. The hotelier is Patrick, who certainly had his own ideas of how things needed to be.  Alex desperately tries to get him to change his ways and create a business that actually works.  We have arguments, tantrums, tears (!) and finally a dramatic makeover, created by me!  It was one of the most challenging spaces I have ever  had to redesign, not only due to the budget and scale of the project, but also the constant battles with the hotelier to try to make him see our vision.  We were thrilled with the end result and I am very proud of what we achieved. Thank you again to my amazing assistant Eleanor and to all the contributors. Now watch the trailer and be sure to tune in tonight, Channel 5 at 9pm!!

How to make Christmas gift tags

On December 9th, 2013 by .

If you are feeling a bit ‘crafty’ over the festive period and would like to know how to make Christmas gift tags, read on for a few ideas.  My first suggestions are silver birch stars, the birch can be bought relatively cheaply as a pack of square sheets and are easy to cut.  Don’t worry about them being perfect shapes as this just adds to their individuality; you can see from the image below that mine are far from perfect! You can either hole-punch one of the points and thread some twine through or simply tuck them into presents as we have below.  They really do look as pretty as a picture if they are used with newspaper or white wrap.

Now, I know that fresh flowers will not survive for very long once they have been cut and tied onto a present, so the idea below would be a very special Christmas gift tag that you would present soon after it had been made, and not left under the tree for a few days, the effect is instant and stunning.  Think about the colour of the flower and whether it compliments the wrap and string.  I have chosen purple as it sits beautifully with the slate tag and grey newspaper print.  Green foliage also looks great with newspaper but thick cream paper would work just as well (foliage also lasts a little longer than flower stems).  Another tip is to use a sprigs of Rosemary, it looks really stylish and will of course leave a beautiful scent on the present (just don’t over do it, one sprig is enough).

The classic pine cone - you can’t go wrong!  You have several options of attaching it, either a glue gun or if you don’t have one of these then just wrap some very thin garden wire around the base and then around the twine, make sure you twist the ends to avoid any sharp points. The cone looks even prettier if you spray it white first…
