Donna Wilson

April 8, 2010

Designer Donna Wilson in London is no stranger to this blog, I’ve talked about her work twice before (first in 2006!) though it’s been awhile… Let’s check in on this talented lady for a moment to see what she has been up, shall we? Yes, we shall. :)

Donna has lots of quirky home accessories in her collection but my favorites include the girl pillow, house blanket, trays, and most of all the hand painted pups! Playful, tactile, colorful… her work covers everything from art to knitted monsters and ceramics so I encourage you to check out her site as there is truly something for everyone. You can see more of her work in-situ along with some of the shows she has been in by following her blog, Leaves and Twigs.

    A very timely post, Holly, as Elle Decoration featured Donna’s as part of their A-Z of Style in their current issue. Lovely post, as usual!

      Will – So nice! I have to go to the train station to see if I can find that issue… It’s hit or miss here, sometimes they have it, sometimes not.

    YES ! Her hand painted ceramic dogs are so unique and the story behind it is so interesting too and the facial pillows would brighten any room of the house, very very inspiring stuff there

    Really cute stuff, very quirky! It has kind of a scandinavian twist. Love the pillows!

    Lovely unique work – Donna has a distinctive handwriting at such an early stage in her career. Great to see.

    Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. I love everything!

    I love Donna Wilson. I really like those dogs – b/c they remind me of these hideous dogs my mom inherited from her Aunt. She always hated them, but then found out they were worth a lot of money – and then started proudly displaying them in our house.

    These are way cooler than those. It makes me want to go paint all over them!

    Loving Donna Wilson, I’ve been coveting her cushions and throws in SCP for too long – I especially love the cutesy owl – x

    We are so in love with the Donna Wilson stuff. That´s the reason why we sell them in our store: the “Pomeranza design ranch” in Berlin, Prenzlauer Berg.
    We met Donna Wilson in winter in Paris – she is a really nice person.
    So if you like to meet her creatures like RUDI RACOON, MITTEN KITTEN, OSCAR DOG, RILL and RALF come to our store! We also have her cushions, small blankets and trays.
    Yee-Haw! Pomeranza!
