At Home with Mrs Hogarth Limited was established by Nicola Carr, a practitioner based in Brentford on the edge of London. Nicola combines her passion for 18th century history, a particular interest in historic textiles with a life-long fascination with dolls houses and miniatures.

The core of the business is the creation of beautiful silks and hand-printed wallpapers, and the first small collection was launched in December 2015.  All of the designs have their origins in the 18th century, though fashion being what it is, many of the designs later enjoyed a resurgence in the 19th century. Most of the designs are licensed from the Warner Textile Archive - which holds England’s second largest collection of flat textiles and narrates the rich history of a great British industry, from its roots in the late 18th century.

The silks are printed at one of the most advanced digital printing facilities in the country, but Nicola is also a member of two different print studios in the London area and it is at these that she prints her unique hand-printed wallpapers.

She welcomes commissions and can facilitate workshops introducing the miniaturist hobby to a wider audience.

When not working for At Home with Mrs Hogarth, Nicola is a Volunteer Conservation Assistant at Osterley House, a National Trust property in West London.
