I’m delighted to announce that my home is featured in the latest issue of Homes & Antiques magazine’s Art Issue. The beautiful images were taken by the brilliant photographer Mark Bolton. His wife Sarah Bolton wrote the feature.
If you are unable to purchase the magazine outside of the UK (I think it is on sale in some European countries) here are the pages of the feature which I snapped on my phone. However I also have a PDF version of the feature which is much clearer than these images so send me a message with your email address if you would like me to send it to you.

My clients are all residential and the projects don't have a start and end date mainly due to budget restrictions or the time it takes to source a particular item(s). I'm happy to roll with it - dip in and out of the project as and when the client needs me but it makes it difficult to share the finished article with you. So I've decided that I'll share my projects with you as a work in progress.
Petersham Nurseries is one of those places that is good for the soul. It is all about beauty and style, both outside and inside. I'm there at least three times a month and have rarely left there empty handed!
It's a half hour drive from my home which takes me across Richmond Park, another place that is good for the soul. It's hard to believe that you are in a big city when you are in the middle of the park surrounded by trees, bracken and deer.
The trend for grey interiors continues, at least in south west London where I and most of my clients live. Most paint their interiors in various shades of grey and then wonder what they can do to brighten them up.

You can't have too many mirrors in the home. Apart from their functional purpose, they are a superb way to bring light into a space, can be used as artwork or generally to enhance the aesthetics of a room.
Here are some of the mirrors in my home and how I've used them.
