Oh boy, do I have a treat for all you home lovers today! Not only am I going to introduce you to the fabulous Divine Savages, a unique and daring interiors boutique for the maximalist but drumroll……. I’m also going to reveal their fantastic competition that starts today at 5 pm eek!!!
Divine Savages – Unique & Daring Design
Although Divine Savages only launched their online boutique last October, they’ve already had a massive impact on the interiors world with their designs. Forget mass-produced, boring and uninspiring design, these guys know how to rock the interiors world. I’ve featured a couple of their designs since they launched, namely their wallpaper, but there’s so much more for me to show you. You can tell I’m excited can’t you ;) I hope you are too!
I’m always intrigued by the people /designers behind the designs and how they’ve come about. More often than not it’s their personal journey which has led them to create and in turn, turn their designs into a reality which is the case with Divine Savages.
Meet husbands, Jamie Watkins and Tom Kennedy, the creative duo behind Divine Savages whose mission it is to provide you with glamorous home accessories, stunning wallpapers, fabrics and limited edition art prints as well as a range of gifts.
Their story began in 2012 in South East London when they bought their first home together. As a couple, they shared a passion for quirky interiors but struggled to find anything they liked. They began to design their own homewares, accessories and artwork which led to being asked where they sourced their unique designs. This sparked the idea of setting up their own design brand and armed with a background in graphic design, branding, fashion and business strategy between them they set out to bring about their own designs to play.
Here at Divine Savages our mission is to inject a splash of wonder into your home and our collections reflect our passion for unique, daring design and patterns with a flourish of both the divine and the savage. We think there’s a little bit of both in all of us.
(Jamie & Tom, Divine Savages)
You’ll be pleased to know that Divine Savages support and use UK manufacturers to bring their creations alive. Using the best quality materials and skill set that the UK has to offer you won’t be disappointed with their designs.
Tom’s background is in illustration and fashion which has naturally influenced the designs produced by Divine Savages. Embracing quintessential Maximalism they’re about encouraging people to use colour, print and pattern in their homes. Whether you go all out with the more is more or prefer the more restrained look by implementing one or two of these elements into your homes, it really doesn’t matter as their designs speak for themselves.
“There are no rules in interiors as far as we’re concerned – why can’t we fuse modern design with the classic, combine different periods and styles and clash pattern? Whilst our style is very recognisable and on trend for 2018’s bold interior resurgence, we always go back to the origins of before we launched – our key rule when designing anything is that we’d love to have it in our own home too.” (Divine Savages)
Deco Martini Collection
Inspired by their love of classic Art Deco prints of the roaring twenties, Divine Savages created their own Deco Martini design, one of their first and most popular designs to date.
Available in both teal and blush colourways, this design will definitely add an air of opulence and elegance to your spaces.
Offering your homes a little bit of the bold and dramatic with their Faunacation design, Divine Savages iconic print features tropical palms, jungle foliage and big cats which combines a bold colour palette of rich blues and reds.
They’ve also recently introduced a moody NOCTURNAL Faunacation which features a luxurious palette of deep blue, teal and emerald-green which takes this jungle-inspired print to a new level as the big cats come out at night, joined by a beautiful full moon and a sky awash with stars. You can see it here.
