I have worked in the interiors industry for as long as I can remember, and I’m one of those frustrating clichés who lives, breathes, sleeps interior design and have done for over 14 years. Having worked for various design agencies all over the world and some very big clients and brands I have always felt PASSIONATE ABOUT CREATING SPACES.
Aside from interior design, travel is my passion. I love EXPLORING NEW PLACES and discovering the local traditions, the culture and the buzz of everyday life in every new destination I visit. I’ve been lucky enough to visit some of the world’s most incredible places, and MY TRAVELS HAVE DEFINITELY INFORMED MY DESIGN STYLE. I’ve watched the sun setting over the Great Wall of China, got up close and personal with some of the big five on safari in Uganda, and marvelled at the archaeological wonders of Egypt.
One of my favourite travel memories though has to be my trip to Thailand. I loved visiting some of the colourful, fragrant markets and since then the exotic and fresh style of Thai food has inspired me in my kitchen at home. I LOVE PUTTING LAYERS OF FLAVOURS TOGETHER to make my dishes taste more intense
While I adore the feeling of the sun on my face, I love it most when the nights start drawing in and I can get cosy by the fire with a good book – the whole world just fades away when I’m reading, I can get lost for hours!
Antique fairs are also a bit of a weakness of mine – I’M FASCINATED BY THE STORIES THAT VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE PIECES HOLD. Give me a cup of good strong coffee and an afternoon trawling for treasures and I am a happy woman.
