Matthew Williamson on color for calm yet maximalist decor

World renowned designer Matthew Williamson started off as fashion designer in London in the 1990s, dressing Kate Moss, Jade Jagger and Alek Wek. He had stores all over the world, and was beloved for his vibrant use of color and motif.

His aesthetic was pure fun, made for people who didn’t take themselves too seriously and who wanted to look outrageously fabulous. Gradually and naturally, Matthew began to switch to interiors, designing his stores by him, then his home by him, then other homeware collections for other brands and then other peoples’ homes.
