No, no, this isn’t a plug for Homes & Gardens, the magazine that kindly lets me write this blog in my contracted working hours. It’s a plug for an event that Stephen Woodhams, the man whose home is featured on our new cover is taking part in at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour on 14 March. Stephen and uber interior designer Joanna Wood will be talking about creating the perfect indoor/outdoor space at 11.30 on the public day of London Design Week, the fabric and wallpaper-fest at which over 500 brands launch new designs. The event lasts an hour and all guests will receive a free seasonal plant from Stephen, a 10% discount from Joanna, and a lovely spanking new April issue from us. Tickets are just £10 to passionforpattern visitors and are selling fast. Call 020 7352 1900 now or visit the Homes & Gardens website. Or if you can’t make it, buy the issue! OK, so it was a plug, after all.
