Obviously the kitchen/dining room ! And in dry weather the garden where even in winter I like to sit, well wrapped up, with a cup of coffee.

Make use of different materials and textures and provide plenty of atmospheric lighting.

Dare to experiment! You will discover surprising combinations and unexpected, unique possibilities that will bring your interior to life.

9   Which trends in the interior design world currently appeal most to you?

The focus on creating a cosy and attractive outdoor space around the house.

10   Which design item is currently your favourite?

My favourite item is definitely our Shade paint! Although not technically an item, you can do so much with it. It allows you to create spaces, adjust mood and accentuate certain elements. Paint really is a versatile medium that can have a big impact on the look and feel of a room.

Sipping a delicious apero.

"Oh, what a beautiful morning" from Count Basie en Ray Charles.
