What do you love about your finished roomset?
For me the finished room encompasses everything I love about minimalism. It feels refreshing and restful and elevates my mood. The mix of materials such as the marble, porcelain, and tone on tone fabrics give the room a layered but modern feel.
Why did you choose curtains for your scheme?
I am a curtains girl, through and through. I rarely use blinds in my own home just because I love the drama the curtains bring. My top tip is to hang your curtains from tracks on the ceiling if possible and let them fall right to the floor. Conceal the track afterwards with a slick wood pelmet painted in the same colour as the ceiling or curtains. It will instantly double the height of the ceiling visually and add elegance and drama.
And what attracted you to these particular fabrics?
I chose three different fabrics in the same tone of ivory for the curtains. I love how the textures, sheens and weights worked together. For the cushions, this shade of blue is easily one of my most favourite ever so an obvious choice, and then I love the metallic in the ivory brocade - every scheme need a bit of glitz in it!
Tell us a bit more about your interior design journey?
I started off 15 years ago in fashion design but quickly realised it wasn’t what I really wanted to do. Interiors had always been the constant obsession for me so I applied to the Great Interior Design Challenge and to my surprise and joy, won the competition. This has propelled me at lightning speed into the world of interiors and I’m loving every second.
