2. You’ve said you’re “passionate about the sea, yellow tulips, and a good cappuccino.” Tell us how that informs your planning process with a new client.
All three of these inspire me to create spaces that encourage a feeling of contentment and ease. I grew up on an island – so the sea has always been an integral part of what makes me who I am.
Unconsciously and consciously I seek to infuse that feeling of being near the sea into my projects – not through a beach aesthetic but by trying to capture that essence —- that calm, zen feeling.
I am drawn to the quiet simplicity, beauty and elegance in the shape and texture of the tulip. It inspires me to create spaces that share these qualities.
I’m passionate about a good cappuccino because I’ve noticed that it is not all about the machinery or the beans, it actually comes down to the level of care and skill of the person preparing it. I follow this concept when sourcing items/furnishing for projects.
I love to work with skilled craftsmen and fabricators, who love what they do, to create beautiful bespoke pieces.
