Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, the well known British designer, is famed for his distinctive interior designs. In addition to interior designs, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen has developed a range of signature products ranging from lighting to wall paper. As a classically trained artist, the range also includes prints of his artwork. The range of Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen paper craft products have been inspired by drawings and designs in Laurence's own sketch book and reflect his taste for dramatic glamor.
The Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen paper craft range, from Trimcraft, is divided into two collections. These are the Retro Rose and Venaissance collections. Both collections work within a palette meaning that all of the products, from papers to embellishments, are designed to coordinate with each other. Each collection features an extensive range of products including:
- Rubber Stamps (mounted and clear)
- Printed Vellum
- Decoupage Kits
- Decorated Brads
- Other embellishments such as feathers, tassels etc.
The Retro Rose collection has been inspired by vintage designs yet given a contemporary makeover. Many of the designs are floral and these are combined with other strong images that give plenty of scope for a wide range of designs. The Retro Rose collection is ideal for vintage inspired designs.
The Venaissance collection is inspired by a mix of the elegance of Venice with the lavish opulence of the Renaissance period. The colors are rich and deep, combined with gold as the metallic accent. The Venaissance collection is ideal for dramatic and flamboyant designs.
In addition to the range of paper craft products, a 90 minute DVD is also available. The DVD looks at the range of products in more detail as well as demonstrating a range of different projects. Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen also gives some background in the DVD about how his inspiration for the designs came about. This gives an interesting insight into the range. A project booklet is included with the DVD.
