Podcast Chat With Dee Campling

To kick off series 2 of the Art First Interiors podcast, I chat to the lovely Dee Campling whose creative and relaxed ‘Boho-Scandi’ style has become iconic on Instagram. Her home has a beautiful and intriguing air of nomadic living, where objects collected on past travels rest casually against walls or by the door hinting at journeys or adventures to be continued. The timeless romance of ditzy florals and faded washed walls are balanced with edgy contemporary art prints and quirky details that bring just a touch of enchantment to make you smile.

We chat about the style ‘evolution’ of a home – how slow, considered decor wins the race – building a story in layers with special pieces that you really love and how the soft edges of old things with all their imperfections are the perfect partner to the clean crisp lines of contemporary pieces.

Dee shares tips on the art of display, the relationships of objects, materials and styles and how to create vintage arrangements that avoid your home looking like a musty, dusty mess. As we head into autumn, she talks about the character of plants and flowers and gives tips on what stems* to look out for on a forest walk that will create a beautiful dried display. 

*Just a note of caution on the Hogweed, it’s not one to be picked unless dead and dried but even then use gloves see advice from the Woodland Trust here

She talks about her life long love of nature and how biophilic design can help us create a home environment that is good for our mental and physical health as well as the planet. Dee’s year round festival spirit blurs the boundaries of indoors and out, she believes they are one whole connected experience that should enhance everyday living. Her vision as we head into autumn living in the time of a pandemic is that our gardens will become the new socialising room in our home – that gives us a whole new decorating project to get excited about!
