Debbie left the world of interior architecture to set up Lunaria, a Floral Design and Plant Styling company based in Somerset. From wheat wall coverings to floral clouds and wedding garlands, Debbie has as a style that will leave you open mouthed. Perhaps it’s her training in spacial design that gives her the edge when it comes to awe-inspiring arrangements or maybe it’s just her unique talent. Whatever it is she’s one to watch!
At Caro - Deborah designed our windows to celebrate our chocolate bars landing in Liberty of London for Valentines 2019. Inspired by the flavours, she thought-up a display that showcased each ingredient with a garland of mimosa, black tea and pine. People would come in off the street just to comment on how they bought a smile to passers by!
Where do you live?
I live in a 17th century house in the middle of Bruton.
We are currently in the middle of a big renovation project which has knocked out a lot of walls and put in a lot of glass, also creating my new studio in a barn in the garden. My surroundings are so important to me and my creativity so I cant wait to reclaim it all back from the builders and furnish and decorate the new spaces... it is now a blank canvas.
Where’s your dream escape destination?
Right now we are planning a trip to japan and this has been on the dream list for a long time. But perhaps a 'dream escape' destination... I would say some polynesian island or somewhere stunningly beautiful with the right balance of wild, connected to nature and luxe.
What’s your vice?
Red wine. (Not sure that is a vice?)
Whats the most memorable advice you’ve received?
'No one is you and that is your strength'
I dont know where I even heard this, but I find it comforting while setting up a new business and establishing my creative identity.
Who’s your muse?
What’s on your coffee table at the moment?
Building dust, Kitchen plans, and scribble drawings done today by my son Nico.
What’s your favourite dish to eat?
Im very fickle with favourites. It depends on how im feeling. But right now im going to say good pizza.
What are you most curious about?
I am curious about everything
What keeps you up at night?
Nothing. I fall asleep within seconds, I should go to bed 2 hours earlier than I do.
If something succeeds at keeping me awake at night then its something really bad.
What gives you butterflies?
Seeing my friends when I haven't seen them for a long time
