My home – a colourful nest

Living in a large and hectic city such as London, I soon realised the importance of my home, the place I would escape to when needing a bit of calm. I chose Richmond, not far from Richmond Park where deer play around free, perfect for long Sunday walks.
It’s not only about the location though. For me it was essential to create my own little world bringing the colours of nature inside. If I had to summarise my style in a few words it would be: bright and floral, using a palette of greens, pinks and blues, mixing antique and modern. Combining contemporary and functional furniture with little treasures found in car boot sales and antique shops has given the charm and character I love. Of course, the overall feel is Scandinavian, using White as the basis for my entire scheme.
