My interiors style in 3 words:
Minimalist, Maximalist + Mid-Century.
My favourite ever home purchase…
An industrial 1970s smoked glass console table by Italian architect Gae Aulenti. I loved it so much when I saw it, I knew I had to have it, and later discovered the architects name on the leg. As it turns out, she designed the interior of one of my favourite buildings of all time, the Musée d’Orsay, Paris.
My best interiors piece of advice…
Go with your instinct and pair two works of art together that make you happy, even if initially seem at odds. They’ll get along just fine.
My favourite Out & Out product is…
I love the elegant 3 seater black velvet Olivia sofa with tripod legs.
