Introducing a new monthly segment to the Vespiary journal - interior designer of the month.
We’ll be sharing the designers that inspire us in how we buy for our store, design our projects and generally make our hearts sing when we see their work.
Our first instalment is Swedish born Beata Heuman
. With a penchant for bright colours and punchy textiles, Heuman brings something new to every project. Whether it’s a ‘Pied Á Terre’ in Paddington or a hip new restaurant in Chelsea, there is vibrance and a sense of humour throughout.
We first came across Heuman's work when she designed super chic The Farm Girl
cafes in London. The Chelsea branch featured below uses ‘Marbelized Wallpaper’, 'Dodo Egg Lights' and 'Aslan Chair' from her own collection to create a joyfully eclectic take on a classic bar design.
Using bespoke furniture from independent Swedish or Italian makers to complement choice wallpaper, textiles and architectural features; her work is often surprising and certainly never safe. But if you cut through the loud patterns and unusual shaped furniture, you’ll find a well-designed space capable of withstanding daily family life. The choice of materials is always sturdy and long-lasting, the layout spacious and uncluttered. It is to her asset that the end result is a feast for the eyes while the functionality is never jeopardised.
