How would you describe your interiors style?
Eccentric, maximalist and quite London.
Do you have a colour palette you stick to?
I could talk about paint colours for a long time. More and more, I like rich, dark jewel colours, which suit this Victoria flat. My hallway is a rich navy, and it makes all the rooms leading off it feel bigger and lighter. People often think that if you paint something white, it will feel brighter, but often the opposite is true, especially when you live in a city like London. I had to paint my bedroom this grey colour because everything else looked dour. If I did it again, I’d go for more of a colour. I’d love to do a whole room in Smoke Green.
If you’re not brave enough to paint walls, how else can you add colour and character?
It’s about using textiles, throws and painted furniture, but not in a shabby-chic way. The chest of drawers in my bedroom is from Phoenix on the Golborne Road – it’s an antiques shop where the team repurposes things. I love what they do.
Art is another great way. I love Partnership Editions. The founder, Georgia Spray, has a great eye, and I want pretty much everything. The painting in my hallway is a Jonathan Schofield, and I’ve already spotted another of his I want. I love Alexa Coe nudes and Julianna Byrne too.
