1) In your own words describe your unique style and creative aesthetic?
Design has to be functional as well as stylish – creating an amazing home that works for those who live there is so important.
2) When starting a new project, what is your creative process?
I look at what activities take place in the space, and what is needed there – which shows storage needs – and then I work on how to make it look great as well!
3) Out of the creative people you have worked with, who is it that you respect and admire the most?
I admire most the people who aren’t afraid to be different – and to challenge what’s right. Organising is so often frowned upon as something for the office but not for the home – but you can have a beautiful home that’s really well organised. There are some fantastic creative resources out there to get you inspired!
4) When looking for inspiration is there a particular thing you do to get inspired?
I always check out Pinterest – it’s a treasure trove for ideas and inspiration at a glance – and can really help to create some unique ideas as a result.
5) What has brought you to this point in your career? And what is your advice for people looking to follow in your footsteps?
I started as purely an interior designer, and saw that clients were struggling more with the function of the space than the design in lots of cases. They had decorated to their style but it still wasn’t working well. This led me into looking at the function of space, then into organising as a large part of my career as I loved it so much!
