How did you get your career start and what path have you taken since? My first design job was designing a kitchen for a friend of my father and my career started from there. My first big design project was for a Formula 1 racing driver.
What's the best lesson you've learnt along the way? That it is the spirit of a home which creates the perfect home in which to live.
What's your proudest career achievement? Receiving my MBE from the Queen in 2009.
What's been your best decision? To persevere with what I love doing. Even though I started my business when I was very young, and it was hard to get my clients to trust me, I am happy that I kept going.
Who inspires you? Nelson Mandela
What are you passionate about? Creating homes for the way people live, not just because they are aesthetically pleasing or filled with design trends. Your home must work for you and how you live.
Which person, living or dead, would you most like to meet? Nelson Mandela
What dream do you still want to fulfil? I want my brand and company to be established in lots of new territories. I would also absolutely adore to design a film/theatre set.
