Emily from The Pink House Blog interviewed Wendy to find out more about her personal life her inspiration and her thoughts about whether it is ever a good idea to have a rug in a kitchen…
Here’s an excerpt of the interview:
EM: Hey Wendy! Thanks for chatting with me. So to start with, please can you tell us a bit about where you live?
WM: Yes of course. I live in East Lothian, Scotland with Gregor, my big handsome man, and my two lovely cherubs: Woody, 12, and Harvey, nine. We share the house and mostly the sofa with Eddie, a leggy black lurcher, and the garden with two chooks, Cherie and Sylvie.
We think the house was previously a Georgian farmhouse – it has big grand rooms with gorgeous cornice detailing and large fireplaces, but it needs a lot of time and energy to get it how we would really like it. Undoubtedly we will want to move just at the point of completion…
EM: You used to work in fashion – how did you get into rug design?
WM: By accident! I’d just moved back to Scotland from London when I was introduced to a local businessman who had a wonderful little workshop by the sea creating tufted rugs. They needed some design input and asked if I was up for the challenge!
EM: What do you love about rugs?
