Designers Guild – Painted Country Tricia Guild

I had a meeting arranged at DG with inhouse interior designer Colin Bisset – 1988.

During the meeting a fail crackle sample slipped from the back of my sample book and landed in front of him…

“I love this!”

“Really?”

“Yes what is it called?”


“Erm… Mexican driftwood!??” I had to think of something..

Colin darted out of the office to return with an original santa Fe distressed kitchen chair in his hands.

“Can you do this?!”

It was the start of 9 years of fabulous paint finishing and styling.
