In a few words (or more, if you'd like), tell us about your design style. How would you describe it? What makes it "yours"?

As a design studio we endeavour to create interiors suffused with an easy modern glamour, we like to turn tradition on its head and make it relevant to modern living without losing any inherent integrity. Hopefully, timeless, interesting and definitely not generic. (or beige!)

What is your most treasured possession? Do you have a story behind it that makes it special?

I absolutely love my collection of Constance Spry vases and planters, they look divine en masse or as the hero centrepiece on a console table planted with spring bulbs. I can't narrow this question to one thing though, my Jean Roger Grenouilles are beloved and also a small collection of Casa Pupo lamps!
