New Zealand born, Australian raised interior designer Fleur Ward has called London home for 20 years. Design is all she?s ever done and her 25 years in the industry consists of designing hotels abroad, sales for Mulberry Home and Rubelli fabrics UK before starting her own interior design business in 2007.
In 2018 after struggling to find wallpapers for her own interior design projects, Fleur founded Ohh Fleur Wallpaper. "I was designing kids rooms for clients and felt that the majority of kids collections were very twee & childish, i.e rockets and dinosaurs. There wasn?t anything aimed at the teen market. I also felt there wasn?t anything cheeky and playful for adults.. Like my Tree Tryst modern toile."
"When a commercial project unexpectedly cancelled in the Spring of 2018, I had the time to train and create my collection.??I launched the wallpapers at Top Drawer and the fabrics at 100% Design 2019. "
All of my designs have a theme,??strong message, or 80?s reference aimed at teens and funky adults with bold brave homes."
All designs are inspired by my sense of humour, my love of the 80?s and my love of colour.??Every design has a piece of me in them.??Design can be taken seriously but I always want to inject some fun into a home. Sustainability and longevity is important so care is taken to use eco-friendly inks, paper and cloth.??Made in the UK is something I?m very proud of. It would be cheaper to go abroad but I prefer to remain and retain quality for my customer base.
