alice apple on BBC 1 tonight!

I was so excited to have been approached by the BBC's DIY SOS team last year. The programme airs tonight on BBC1 at 9pm and features a very deserving family of a father and his 6 children who sadly lost their mother after her battle with cancer.

I worked closely with their very lovely interior designer Gabrielle Blackman to help in her makeover of 2 bedrooms for 3 little girls.

As well the few toys I donated, various wallpapers and fabrics with my designs were ever so kindly printed and donated by the brilliant team at Spoonflower...I couldn't have participated without their generosity!

You can buy the fabric and wallpaper from the programme here and follow Gabrielle's twitter feed during the show here.  I'll be adding more mini dachshunds to my Etsy shop over the next couple of weeks.

I've fallen in love with your wallpaper. I want to purchase!! Where can I buy in the uk?

Thanks so much for your comments:) My wallpaper is currently only available from the USA as it's the only (affordable) outlet for independent designers like myself.

I hope to find UK manufacturer in the future!
