OUR CREATIVES

Barb

Who would you most like to design a house for (past or present) and why?

Steve Jobs.  Developing the perfect home for a true visionary, and showcasing that a home space designed for you 'changes your world ' would have been a dream

If I wasn't designing homes I'd be ?

You'll never see me?

Wearing purple

 

My favourite 3 adjectives?

Balanced, Bold (not bright), Unique

 

A past or present design trend I loathe?

Micro suede fabric on sofas, or anything!!

 

You've travelled extensively, your favourite neighbourhood?

Regents Park London.Every street, park and building is inspiring (+plus there's squirrels)

 

Go to dining room colour?

Deep anything (not purple)

 

My personal decadent splurge in a home would be?

I adore tall doors; they change space perception

 

Am I a collector or minimalist?

I don't have collections as such, I have groupings of important pieces, with a very strict  'one in - one out' rule

 

One tip I wish someone had given me when I started designing?

Ask a hundred questions. Always wait for tradesmen you trust. Triple measure everything.  Use suppliers who represent your standards. (Did you say one sentence?)
