About Us

Welcome to Penelope Hope, where you will find our luxury cushions, designer fabric, lampshades and bespoke furniture pieces adorned with vibrant and playful prints. Founded in 2015 by artist & designer Nadia Newton for style-savvy colour lovers.

Our unique fabric designs and luxury cushions are the perfect addition to any home; injecting instant colour and energy to ensure they'll never fade into the background!

Our cushion and fabric designs are in-part trend influenced but also have a timeless nature, with colour palettes that allow easy pairing and styling. The Cocktails & Dreams Collection is bang on trend for luxury interiors this year with tropical palm tree print cushions and pineapple fabrics that certainly pack a real colour punch. There is a Moorish, exotic vibe with a summery colour palette that will brighten up a room in an instant.

Our more opulent, Oresome Collection, as the name suggests, is another key trend of the moment, including metallic cushions, metallic fabrics and lampshades using metals such as copper, brass, gunmetal and silver. Using a mix of classic and Moorish geometric patterns hand screen-printed onto luxurious silk twill this collection of limited edition cushions and lampshades is a dream come true for those with magpie habits!

Penelope Hope prides itself on supporting British manufacturing; all of our designer fabrics are lovingly printed in England.

Founder of Penelope Hope, Nadia Newton

Hi, I'm Nadia, the founder and designer behind Penelope Hope. I'm a Guernsey girl; hugely passionate about and inspired by the beautiful island I can call my home. I am married to my childhood sweetheart and we have three gorgeous kiddies together. In fact, the youngest, was due to be named Penelope Hope, but turned out to be a boy, hence a more masculine name was picked for our son and I saved the name Penelope Hope for what has become my fourth baby! Read about how I picked the name here.

Whilst on maternity leave and completing a renovation of our house I was struggling to find good quality fabrics and soft furnishings in bold and bright colours. It was then I decided it would be my mission to create a bold and bright designer fabric collection and luxury cushion range, for people like myself, that are looking to inject colour, pattern and personality into their homes as well as wanting good quality and attention to detail.

With a background in design, retail and marketing to assist me, I decided it was about time to take the plunge and fulfil my dream. With the support of my hubby and kids I launched Penelope Hope in 2015 with the hope to bring colour, pattern and sparkle into people's homes, and with it a little dose of fun! To learn more about my background read this interview here.

The Penelope Hope designer fabric collections have all been created exclusively by myself from a combination of using my original artwork, hand drawn sketches, photography and digital processing techniques, all pulled together creating a dazzling array of colour, pattern and playfulness. I have been inspired not only by my island home, but my worldwide travels and favourite pastimes of going to the beach, swimming in the sea and exploring the outdoors. 

My goal is to help you bring your homes to life, let them be as vibrant, dynamic and bold as you are. Go on, throw away the rulebook, and have some fun in your homes, be brave and be bold!

p.s. I thought I'd share a little video commissioned by the local Startup Agency that assisted me with setting up my business with the aim to inspire and influence new start ups.
