Highly acclaimed illustrator and mixed-media artist, Quentin Jones, has recently launched her first textiles collection with Habitat. She lives in London with her husband and two sons.
WORK OF ART
“My interior style is somewhere between quite calm and modernist in places, with white walls covered in loud art.”
FASHION MEETS FUNCTION
“I live with my husband George, and our two sons in a 3-floor flat fronted townhouse. The garden feels like New York to me because it’s such an urban garden with a paved floor and marble table for eating on in the warmer months.Most of our rugs have stains on from the kids, so I can’t wait to swap them for my new Habitat rugs - it’s so nice to have a reason to re-vamp what becomes a very utilitarian family base. And I’m also obsessed with my new Habitat sofa – I’ve never sat on a more comfy and luxurious feeling sofa.”
“I love pieces we have picked up travelling – like our coffee table is really amazing and we found it in Marrakech. We also have lots of carved wooden antiques from the Paris fleas.I also love it when people re-purpose things and use them in new ways, like using old windows and putting mirrors behind them for a new way to frame a mirror. We have something like that in our bathroom that I found at a cool old antiques place on the Essex Road.”
