I get inspired by nature, shapes, texture and the palettes we see around us.
I always recommend selecting items that resonate with you. If you're stuck on where to start, choose an artwork first and then pull colours from it.
This is really a fine art! It comes down to understanding how to combine the right items with the space it’s being paired with. I think it all comes down to ratio and choosing the right footprint for furniture in a room. The accessories and décor will always finalise the look of a space.
I really can’t say what the most interesting is as there have been so many in my styling and design career. I always find interest in heritage and older style homes. They have so much character and substance.
The living rooms and master bedrooms are usually my favourite to style. We spend so much time in these areas, and I like to splash out there!
Invest in the big items and keep it neutral!
I have a very busy family life and it usually involves ferrying my kids to and from sport or walking our dog Cookie. I also love to bake, paint and pottering in our garden.
