Well I don’t think we need to get Freud on board to see why I’m drawn to hotel decor at the moment but I will also say that hotel design has always been a key part of my design process. Ideally visiting but when that’s impossible then wandering round the corridors of the internet works…

Well what a week. I spent most of it filming for something that I will tell you all about in September and then my in-laws came for the weekend; the first time they have been here since 2019. It felt so strange to see them inside and not huddling under an umbrella at the end…

The Mitre by Nicola Harding & Co

Nicola Harding is one of my favourite interior designers. It was her work that I referenced when I first noticed the importance (and joy) of bringing a disrupter colour into every scheme and she is also fully committed to being as sustainable as possible in her work.
