Now I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this (cue snores) but I’m currently writing the second book. It’s out next March if I haven’t….. Anyway, one thing – by the way I’ve done 37,000 words out of 40,000 at this point (cue round of applause) – now where was I? Oh yes one thing my…

This week the 10 beautiful rooms is another house tour. Not, sadly, of a client of mine, but of an interior designer who has no need of my help for his home. It is the gorgeous flat of Oliver Thomas, who may be familiar to some of you as the runner up on The Great…
