i like lighting to be low-key.

house lighting needs to be gentle and sometimes a little off balance. i
don’t like too much perfection, with every picture lit.


i don’t think technology should be discreet.

unless it is easy to hide and not
remotely gimmicky. i don’t like television screens that are
mirrored. i like big speakers on the floor – i like the honesty of
it.

i am a believer that all style can be worked well or
badly.

a dull tile used poorly in a
bathroom will feel like a tragic apology, but take the same tile
and cover your entire house, and suddenly it becomes a statement
and it’s different.

when designing a room, a hand drawing still wins in my
book.

they have more atmosphere than
computer-designed images
.


invest in things you love.

the tiny, round marble table
next to the bath in my own home gives me so much
pleasure.


before ordering, i try furniture 
in the space it’s intended for.

i often use mdf boxes – even before
the building is finished. it helps you feel the energy of a
layout.

for textiles, i turn to my store cupboard full of old
fragments.

i also love developing a unique
fabric for a house. i am working with a few handweavers at the
moment
.


don’t be afraid to seek expert advice.

for a recent project, at godwin house in tite
street
, we worked with an art historian and
developed a new hand-blocked wallpaper design from fragments of an
old godwin wallpaper found in the v&a. the result is very
contemporary yet cosy.


not every room or area needs an obvious
purpose.

generous wasted space, if treated
properly, can be the thing that makes a house.
