Prolific as well as passionate, she is known for her generosity when it comes to knowledge – her ex-assistants are now some of the best in their respective fields. She comes from a family of teachers and with three books written on the topic of interiors, Things I Love and Home Love (Lantern, Penguin) and a kids interiors book called I Love My Room (published by Thames and Hudson). Put simply sharing comes naturally to her.

Which brings us to this part of her story.

All classes are held in our beautiful purpose-built Rosebery studio – ginormous white spaces full of potential and possibility for your inner creative. A comment we hear often on the blog airwaves, Instagram and kind letters to our office is, 'it was the best day ever!". Big call but really is true.
