Zoë's curtains

Vineyard, Flax

Zoë chose Vineyard in Flax - the perfect calming colour for her little one. Made from wool and flax, these curtains are a great blackout solution - everyone needs a good night's sleep!

When did you start Dress Like A Mum and how did it come about?

I started Dress like A Mum while I was on maternity leave with my second child about 4 years ago. I started it as I wanted to prove to the world that just because you are a mother it doesn't mean you can't dress!

We often say that your home is a more permanent expression of your personal style , do you agree?

Yes I do believe this. Our home is colourful and relaxed and has mixture of things from all sorts of places - from high end designers, the high street, second hand stores and small businesses - which is exactly the same as how I dress.

What are the three words that describe your style?

When decorating, where do you start? With a colour, with a certain piece of furniture or with a theme?

It depends on the room, budgets and what we are trying to achieve. We have recently painted our lounge a dark blue grey and love it - it has made the art we have on the walls stand out and our yellow/green sofa look great. We wanted it to be a cosy space in comparison to our bright white kitchen. With the new kids room we wanted it to be fairly neutral so we went for a very pale grey and then added colour with the furniture and toys and dark purple curtains.

If you could give a piece of advice to your followers about being bold with colour, what would it be?

If you like it - go for it! People often 'play it safe' and are scared of colour but sometimes you'll never know until you try.
