Ideal Home Truths 

Where’s your happy place? 

Hard to choose! Wrapped up in bed with a cup of tea and book, candle burning, flat spotlessly clean. Can’t say this happens much. Or maybe in my kitchen, cooking risotto or making margaritas - it’s a super small space but my friend says it has a Parisian apartment feel, so I’ll take that. It’s flooded with natural light and I’m loving my window boxes with bright red geraniums and fresh herbs. It’s a vibe.

What’s your home addiction? 

Anything rattan. Planters, lampshades, chairs, I even have a rattan handbag. I need all of it. Also, microfibre cloths, collapsible storage crates and vases.

What is your next home project?

Kitting out my new little flat (on a budget)! I’m on the hunt for some big rugs, interesting light fittings to make a statement, lamps, and artwork to bring colour, and above all a cosy, welcoming feel. I also need to put up some shelves… Wish me luck.
