Shopkeeper of the Week - Turner Pocock Cazalet + 20% off all the collection

This week we look into the illustrative world of Turner Pocock Cazalet. Bunny Turner and Emma Pocock are the co-founders of the chic and quirky interior design company Turner Pocock and recently added a third name to the successful mix. Catherine Cazalet an artist who says her work is about "old fashioned romance, eccentricities and a slight obsession with colour" creates nostalgic and playful illustrations which Turner Pocock turn into the most fantastic wall coverings.

In a world where floral and large geometric wallpapers have become ubiquitous it is a real pleasure to find designs which are unusual and have lots of character.

Turner Pocock Cazalet specialise in high quality papers in subtle colour ways with surprising motifs; cricket bats, tennis rackets, delicate outlines of polar bears and ibis birds to galloping zebra and parading ostriches.

Because the company is founded on the principles of interior design the wallpapers work exceptionally well in any home and are designs you will want to invest in which will stand the test of time.

Turner Pocock and Cazalet are offering 20% off all designs to The Secret Arcade visitors from today until April 15th - just enter: thesecretarcade at the checkout in their shop.
