As a child growing up in Sheffield in the 1970s, Michelle Mason still recalls the thrill of being driven to Habitat in Leeds by her best friend’s mum. 'She was a Biba chick and I loved how she dressed and the way she decorated her home, with bright colours and bold prints,' she remembers. 'She was my first introduction to pattern and colour and she was no doubt a massive influence on me.'Pops of bold hues and eye-catching designs certainly inform the diminutive East London flat that Mason, a print designer, shares with her photographer husband Bill Osment and their ten year old daughter, Marni. From a staircase papered in a typographic paper, inspired by London bus blinds, to a wall of prancing zebras in the bedroom, Mason evidently practises what she preaches: 'I think it’s very important to trial the designs,' she admits. 'You have to go with your convictions.'
