Where The Wild Things Are

By adopting the ‘experiments and errors’ of his design company Timorous Beasties, Alistair McAuley has created a vibrant, eclectic den for his young family. Timorous Beasties was founded in 1990 by Alistair McAuley and Paul Simmons, who met while studying textile design at Glasgow School of art. At the home McAuley shares with his wife, Denise and their children. “This is the first time in ten years that I have lived with so much of our stuff, and it isn’t as horrendous as I thought it might be,” says McAuley. “It’s also good to have the fabrics and wallpapers at home, because when you are working with the designs, you don’t really get an idea of how they look until you see them hanging.” When it came to doing up the detached house in the Glasgow suburbs, McAuley didn’t have it all his own way. Denise, once an art teacher and now part of the architect and interiors team of Occa Design, is no slouch on the creative front herself. Writer vinnylee@btinternet.com
