A deeper look into my world
of travel, design and inspiration.

  1. Piece of Furniture

    One of my favourite’s from last year was a fun piece of joinery we installed into the Drawing Room of a project. This was our ‘invisible’ Bar, a wall of powder blue with brass trimming and mirrored shelves, this piece blends perfectly into the style of the room yet the impeccable craftsmanship stands out beautifully. When the lights dim and the client is ready for a drink the walls come down showing off a fully-functioning bar with fridge, sink and drop down chopping board at the ready to chop a lemon up for a freshly made Gin and Tonic.

  2. Favourite Place

    It’s no secret that my very happy place is the Bahama’s, I try to bring Bahamian style to everything I touch, if it is appropriate enough.. The free and happy approach they have to life truly reflects in their style, in particular the endless use of gorgeous pastel colours which mirrors the landscape.

    If I am given a colourful brief I will absolutely go for it creating a really individual space and sourcing fantastic accessories, a lot of which I bring over from the Bahama’s. It is very hard for my family to drag me away from The Island Store by Lyford Cay.

    My latest purchase was giant, canvas palm leaves which I have brought over to decorate our pop-up shop which is of course Bahamian themed.

  3. How to do a dinner party…

    Even if you aren’t the best cook in the world with the right table setting, lighting and unique touches your dinner party will be very memorable. Of course, good company will help but I can’t advise you on your guests I am afraid..

    I would always go for a soft light that compliments your guests, they will always want to come back. To get that beautiful glow and bring some fun colour to the table I use Angela Wickstead’s candles that come in an array of beautiful colours.

    To keep cost down and longevity invest in some fake flowers from Oka or Fake Landscapes and add a few real flowers to bring it all to life.

    My individual touch to the table is usually something I have found on my travels; my latest being gold leaves that I have been using as bread plates, they inject so much fun to the table. These will be available to buy at our pop-up shop in March.
