    When embarking on a project it can be tempting to choose a style you see in a glossy magazine, then discover it doesnt suit your lifestyle. So look closely

    at yourself and your family and see the sort of folk you (really) are. Then decide on a style that will suit you now and over the next 10 years.

    Much as I admire minimalism and cite John Pawson as one of my favourite artists/architects, I know myself too well and know it could never (ever) work for me. A squirrel and a magpie,

    I collect anything and everything. My treasure includes scraps of paper with scribbles of interesting words, to delightful vintage tins overfl owing with seed packets, sketches and ideas for the house and garden. I love them, they speak to me and make me tick.

    I feel interiors are becoming too homogeneous, with an international blingy style that only says look what Ive got, whereas your home can also

    say look who I am. Find your style and develop your soul turn the pages to see what makes you tick.
