I was so excited to interview Caprice and ask her some questions about her at home range. By Caprice Home is now available now via major retailers including www.dunelm.com It is a gorgeous, luxurious range and
How and why did you get into home décor and design?
It was a natural extension to the brand. I spotted a gap in the market and no one was doing glam homewear. It has been a huge success and this is the reason why I have decided to link up with my licensing partners. They are helping take my brand to the next level. In business to evolve you need to know your limitations and to go global and be able to fulfil worldwide orders I needed to partner up with the best. Sadaqat are by far the leaders in textiles!
Out of your By Caprice bedding range what is your favourite piece?
Hmm..hard to say as all the pieces are so beautiful but one of my personal favourites is the By Caprice Freya in taupe. It has these exquisite seashell outlined in tiny sequins and it adds a luxurious touch instantly. It is perfect for the summer months!
Loving your home collection it is very glitzy! What inspired you?
Ahh thank you! We have a whole team of designers that create something unique for our customers. I am obsessed with sales figures and study them weekly to see what our customers are loving. Then we give the customer more of what they want.
This season you can find lots of twinkling sequins and intrinsic designs.
What exciting projects are you working on at the moment?
I have started acting again and I have just wrapped up an exciting film. I can’t wait to share more!
I am also going to be doing a fun reality show on Channel 5 in August….
On the By Caprice Home brand side, we are busy planning a number of worldwide launches including USA and Dubai.
What are your top 3 tips for a beautiful bedroom?
- Indulge in luxurious linens and fabrics. There’s nothing that adds comfort to a bedroom like beautiful linens. Add other sensual feeling fabrics through the bedroom with a soft throw on the arm of a reading chair, or add textured wall coverings, or add plush floor coverings.
- Cushions, cushions and cushions. You can’t have enough layering, it adds warmth and depth to your space
- The right sized furniture is key – when buying bedroom furniture be practical and start out with a floor plan and look at your measurements. Don’t be tempted to go to Ikea and hope for the best… we’ve all done it and realised the cupboards and bedside tables do not fit! Furniture should fit the room it lives in and this is essential for bedroom furniture. Bear in mind the height of your room as well; you could opt for a tall headboard to optimise the space for example.
What has been the highlight of your career?
There are so many highs and lows. I would say being asked to attend the MTV Music Awards and present an award with Steven Tyler was a ‘pinch me’ moment. It was so much fun!
Do you have any advice for creating a beautiful home?
Try my top tips !
Freshen up your home with a feature wall collage – anything from family photos to cute picture frames. You can buy cheaply from a high street store or from your local market. You can suit to taste and add hints of the season to add those spring, summer, autumnal or winter tones. Never fails everytime. This can work in multiple rooms of your home but I advise sticking to two rooms maximum otherwise it can look cluttered. Trust me you will get lots of compliments.
ADD A TOUCH OF DRAMA
If your room is quite plain, introduce an element a strong texture, pallette or a touch of pattern to make up the space. Bright coloured cushions and contrasting throw, for instance, can make your lounge pop. For in your boudoir, a beautiful adorned bedding set set can add an air of luxury and glamour. Don’t be afraid to mix up the textures too and be as individual.
There is something really appealing to a room that exudes gorgeous smells and even a flicker of a candle. Your room will feel cozy and intimate, and matched with the right accessories, they can really transform your space.
Mirrors are often used in interior design, in fact it is sometimes the designer’s secret weapon. Simply by placing a lamp in front of a hanging wall mirror, not only will you be making the space appear larger in daylight, but the lamp will create beautiful reflections and add drama!
Forget rugs or carpet, if you want to opt away from wood or tiles, try using carpet tiles. They are versatile and if there’s a spillage (which there always is) you can easily take the square in question and wash or replace it.
