I have written before about some of the aspiring and inspiring young people who have started with a skill and used it to develop into a successful business. Getting started can be quite a struggle and to get in touch with the right outlets and sponsors takes time and money! So I applaud those who make it to the top and try to encourage any young person whom I feel has that 'star' quality. Mel White is just such a person and she sent me news that not only has her work been taken on by the prestigeous firm of Zoffany, but her design Verdure in the Arden collection has been given the House & Garden best printed fabric award - it is a lovely greenery view based on the famous French tapestries - and also now nominated for the Elle Decoration British Design Award. If you have a medieval cottage or a moated mansion, what better way to commemorate period furnishings and English talent !
