This week, I was truly honoured to be included in House & Garden’s Top 100 Interior Designers of 2018. The wonderful accolade is exciting in its own right, however, to be named amongst such stellar creative minds, makes this award all the more meaningful. My fantastic team congratulated me on the day with the most beautiful bouquet of flowers from the extremely talented Grace & Thorn florists.
Although I am constantly looking to the future, with the company receiving such a commendation, it fuels the need to focus even more on longevity and creating a heritage. This longevity is one of the greatest inspirations behind my upcoming book which is due to be released in the Autumn of 2018.
The idea of doing a book originally came from the wish to put all projects completed by Fiona Barratt Interiors down on paper. An amalgamation of the company’s hard work and success over the years if you will. However, through working with the amazing publisher Rizzoli, and meeting with interesting and creative directors and writers for the same purpose, I have decided to perhaps go more in the direction of a complete lifestyle book. A book of interior inspiration and advice. At any rate, my book will be a forward step for the company’s brand awareness and, despite currently being in a fledgling state, it is a very exciting and rewarding next chapter for myself and Fiona Barratt Interiors, pun intended.
