Since Blogger was down on Friday, I am bringing last weeks installment of "My Interior Life" to you today! Many of you probably already know the handsome and charming english chap Will
over at Bright Bazaar
, but if you aren't yet familiar, be sure to visit him
and get lost in the endless pages of bright and happy rooms!
I've always loved...Bright colours. Even when I was a kid my trainers were the brightest on the block!
I wish I'd designed...The Oswold sofa.
My guilty pleasure is...Marmite on toast with lashings of butter. Ultimate comfort food.
My favorite smells are...Cherry blossoms, freshly baked cakes and coffee.
The best gifts are...Ones given with love and thought.
The greatest lesson in life...Treat others the way you would like to be treated yourself.
I like to personalize things by...Mixing in new pieces with old, along with unique things I have made myself. I recently made an owl cushion, which now sits on my sofa alongside pillows from H&M and Zara Home, and a vintage design I picked up at a flea a few months ago. I love how it is a mix of high street, vintage and a one off.
The designer I admire most is...Jonathan Adler - seriously, his work is so, so good.
My favorite place in the world is...Being in the English countryside. I grew up in a tiny village in the country, so it will always be special to me even though I love living in the city now.
Happiness itself is...not a destination, it is a state of mind.
My proudest professional achievement...Seeing my styling work in magazines across the world.
My Home is...in a renovated warehouse in London that used to be a factory making uniforms during the World Wars.
I prefer brightly coloured walls because...I think they make for a great backdrop for both art and furniture alike.
I covet...vintage glassware.
My 3 essential cooking ingredients are...Garlic, chili and basil.
My only interiors rule is...Don't be afraid of colour, and remember it doesn't have to be bright: Pastel shades work wonders just as well as the brightest hue in the book.
