I was thrilled to be featured in the June edition of House & Garden. This is the interiors bible of style and sophistication and has long been my ‘go to’ to keep up to speed with the latest in the design world. To be highlighted within their interior design directory was the ultimate compliment. It has been a privilege working on some beautiful projects over the past decade, made possible by my wonderful clients. A big thank you to everyone, clients, followers, and my team.
I spent some of my time during Lockdown designing a bespoke collection of cushions using fabrics from some of my favourite designers; Nina Campbell, Lewis & Wood and Guy Goodfellow. I donated the fabrics myself and had the cushions made by my curtain maker. These I then sold to raise funds for the NHS during a five-day Instagram campaign.
Thank you to all of you who supported this fundraising initiative. I was thrilled to raise over £1,000 for the Hampshire Medical Fund. This is a charity I support both personally and professionally so it meant a lot to be able to donate to them, whilst supporting my suppliers, during these challenging times.
I have two photo shoots scheduled late May/June, (fingers crossed!) with my style team and favourite photographer, David Parmiter, to capture our most recent projects and very much look forward to sharing the images with you too.
One project has a selection of really characterful wallpapers from contrasting suppliers, a Scandinavian designer called Sandberg and the long-established, classic Cole and Sons. The other project is a classic English home with fabulous fabrics from some of our most loved suppliers such as Soane Britain and Lewis and Wood. It is lovely to be able to work on such a diverse range of projects.
Nevermore so than today, Lockdown has provided us all with time for reflection and an opportunity to invest in home, both emotionally and materially.
This has brought with it a wave of enquiries and interest in refurbishments and renovations as clients seek to rethink and upgrade this most valuable of spaces. A sure and positive sign that we are getting back to business.
