How would you describe your interior style? Is there a common theme between your dress sense and interior preferences?I would probably describe my interiors style as contradictory! I loathe clutter and like things neat but at the same time, I'm a total sucker for print, colour and kitsch. I suppose in that way it's fairly similar to my dress sense.
I've been lucky enough to stay in places with some seriously fabulous interiors. The Georges V in Paris - where I stayed on a trip with Dior a couple of months ago - was stunning. It's recently been refurbished and is very luxurious but in a really cool, art deco way.
I think the most lovely has to be JK Place in Florence where I stayed when Gucci did a bloggers trip in 2011. It's the most exquisitely gorgeous boutique hotel with just 20 rooms arranged around a beautiful courtyard.
Working on La Petite Anglaise mostly from home, how do you get into office mode?It can be tricky but I actually find it harder to work outside my home office environment. I've never really experienced anything different and I've always been quite a focused person so I just sit down and get on with it. There are, of course, unlimited coffee and cigarette breaks which is a definite perk of working for yourself.
I'm actually really terrible at unwinding and definitely don't do enough of it! I think that's maybe an occupational hazard if you work for yourself and from home, there's no real cut off point. That said, now and again a stack of magazines and large glass of white wine usually does the trick.
What do you love most about living in West London?
I couldn't imagine living anywhere else. I adore the architecture and whenever I can, I wander through Westbourne Grove ogling the houses. I think what I love the most about West London though would have to be the parks and general greenery.
I live right by Brook Green and about 10 minutes' walk from Holland Park which are both gorgeous places to go running or - if it's hot - maybe even have a picnic.
What's your biggest indulgence at home?Probably the many, many, many clothes, shoes and handbags I keep. If I was very rich my biggest home indulgence would be art, or couture pieces I'd display as works of art.
It's a close call between Notting Hill in London and the West Village in New York. Ultimately though, I don't think I could ever live anywhere other than England permanently.
