1) In your own words describe your unique style and creative aesthetic?
As an interior stylist working across magazines + tv shows, I have to be pretty flexible as I work with so many different clients who all want different looks. Personally, I love vintage finds and antiques.
2) When starting a new project, what is your creative process?
I always say working on a shoot is about 99% organisation and 1% creative! A big part of my job is having a vision of how I want things to look, and making that happen. Then on location I’ll tweak the camera angle or make adjustments on set to get the perfect look.
3) Out of the creative people you have worked with, who is it that you respect and admire the most?
I work with so many talented people it is hard to say just one. My best shoots are when everyone is fired up with the products we are shooting and create something that looks really original and fresh.
4) When looking for inspiration is there a particular thing you do to get inspired?
I love trawling through interior magazines but more recently I’ll be on blogs looking for ideas on the latest trend. I launched my own blog this year – WeLoveHomeBlog – and it has made me value more and more the insite bloggers have to offer.
5) What has brought you to this point in your career? And what is your advice for people looking to follow in your footsteps?
My career has been very fluid – from working for magazines – to producing tv makeover shows, to creating look books for high street stores, to brand consultancy to now blogging. I suppose this is what keeps me on my toes.
