At Home with Mrs Hogarth

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.

The design and production services that she offers can of course be applied to papers and textiles for any era of dolls' house – not just the 18th century designs offered on this website. Nicola can produce a totally bespoke creation on your behalf, and the final product can be delivered on papers and textiles which are not offered as part of her standard ranges. Alternative ink finishes, glazes, metal foiling and hand-tinting are just some of the possibilities that can be explored. Utilising advanced digital skills it is possible to translate almost any design from its original source and to first enhance, repair and then expand the design in digital form, before moving on to final printing and/or other hand processes which she offer. A no-obligation quotation can be prepared upon request.

When not working for At Home with Mrs Hogarth, Nicola works at Osterley Park & House, and 575 Wandsworth Road - both are National Trust properties in London.
