All I want for Christmas…

With Christmas fast approaching, we hope you agree that our new cushions would make the ideal gift, and there’s still time for Christmas delivery if you place your order soon!  Or treat yourself instead – what better way to spend these cold winter evenings than snuggled up on the sofa with a mug of hot chocolate in the comfort (and style) of a Barneby Gates cushion?

You may have noticed we have a bit of a thing for animals and nature, and living out in the sticks we have a constant source of inspiration right here on our doorstep. Fortunately, we’re not the only ones this way inclined, so we’ve come up with some ideas with which to accessorize some of our woodland-inspired wallpapers and fabrics.

Moodboard: All Star

Following on from a post a little while back, where inspired by a Mother’s Day present of a set of Hares bookends, we compiled some of our favourite Hares products to compliment our Boxing Hares Wallpaper. This month, we take our All Star Fabrics and Wallpapers, with a mood board of our top choices below.

Any feedback or suggestions for products to compliment any of our other wallpapers, for use in future posts, would be most appreciated.

As mentioned previously, we see a lot of rolls of wallpaper and fabrics leaving the Studio each week and we often wonder where they end up and how they look in their finished home. We will be posting our favourites on this blog and would love you to either email in your pictures to or simply post them on instagram or twitter with the hashtag #barnebygatesathome.

Today we are featuring our Boxing Hares Wallpaper in Stone.

Interior Designer Louisa Mousley, of The Style Guide Interior Design, creates a gorgeous hallway and staircase with a mix of neutral colours, stained wood and a fantastic red armchair.

Simon sent in this picture of a room in his house with a feature wall in Boxing Hares in Stone. We’d love to cosy up in front of the wood burning stove on a cold winter’s day in one of those very comfy looking armchairs!

Finally interior designer Kate Arbuthnott sent this image through of another hallway and staircase, complete with striking, statement Chandelier.

Trend: Upcycling

We love the trend of upcycling and taking an old piece of furniture, or an object, and giving it a new lease of life. There are so many wonderful things that can be done using everyday items and just a little imagination, to transform something old or ordinary, into some beautiful and unusual. Here are some of our favourites.


Love this old Piano, transformed into a statement bookcase.  Re-cycled window frames make for a great room divider, without blocking out any light.


Old Tennis Rackets with mirrors instead of strings. A bicycle wheel makes for a striking wall clock.

Wallpaper doesn’t just have to be used on walls. We love this picture sent into us by one of our customers showing how they have used our Turquoise Paisley wallpaper and distressed paint to revamp a plain pine sideboard. Our Promenade wallpaper also looks great on this bedside table.

Do you have a few empty bottles or old hats lying around? Why not transform them into a fantastic new light!


Create more storage or display space using old books as shelves, or add casters and paint old drawers for fantastic under bed storage.

Painting an old chair and re-upholstering the seat pad in a new fabric can give a chair a completely updated look. We love our Rose Honey Bees fabric with this gorgeous, traditional, white chair.

House Rules, Australia.

House Rules is an Australian Reality Home Show, where six couples compete to become mortgage free by decorating each others homes. Think Changing Rooms, but on a much larger scale, and with the added bonus of travelling around Australia. In recent weeks we have been inundated with sample requests from our Australian customers and after a little investigation we have found out that our Honey Bees in Charcoal was used on the show. Here is a picture of the finished room!
