When I was younger I had two main pastimes: taking things apart and putting them back together (much to my parents' annoyance!) and reading and writing stories. Little has changed ― I now spend my time mentally disassembling and reconstructing spaces and working with my clients to tell their story through their homes.
It took a little while to realise that I could apply these passions to a career in design... but as a result I bring a vast array of life experience and inspirations to my projects. I listen, without judging or dictating and I work with my clients to deliver what they need (not always what they first think they need!). In collaboration, we create spaces that are beautiful, enhance and enable their lifestyles and reflect the story of who they are.
After obtaining a degree in English Literature from Cambridge University, I pursued a career in PR and marketing, renovated several properties, relocated a couple of times and acquired a family. By this time, I had become a walking, talking reference library of paint colours, fabrics and furnishings and I decided that the time had come to take action! I retrained at Inchbald School of Design to gain a Diploma in Interior Design and Decoration with Distinction and am now working in a freelance capacity for both individuals and design consultancies.
