Growing up in a family of accomplished gardeners as well as training in Interior Design, her passion for design, colour and gardens runs deep in her veins.
What do you love most about your job?
I love the design process the best, working from the clients brief to create something unique, a bit quirky and beautiful!
Where's your favourite hangout?
Haha! I don't really 'hangout' anywhere (sad but true). I kind of wish I had more time to just hang out but my best down time is spent walking along the river with my border terrier Wafer and pottering in my garden.
What's top of your playlist right now?
I love to listen to a bit of Bruce Springsteen when I am feeling energised but during our Covid lockdown I have enjoyed the soothing tones of Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. My darling Dad would be delighted to hear this from his heavenly birch up above!
What's your most loved piece in your wardrobe?
I tend to reach for my blue linen trouser suit when I need to look and feel a bit pulled together and smart. Otherwise I am a jeans and white button down shirt kind of girl, one can never have too many white shirts I feel, a real luxury, having said that, the majority of them are from Gap.
How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Errrr, I am embarrassed to say that I think probably have well over 50 pairs of shoes, that's a bit ridiculously excessive isn't it? My problem is I hate getting rid of them as they are all good quality and have stood the test of time. #notahoarder !
What do your Rogues say about you?
My new Rogue shoes are a hugely welcome addition to my wardrobe. I love a practical comfortable shoe and my Tutti Frutti brogues have all of these features, so I suppose what they say about me, is here's a girl who likes comfort, detail, colour and style.
