Ideal Home Truths

Where is your happy place?

I grew up in Bournemouth on the south coast, and though I live in London now I’m always scrambling to get back to the beach. Bournemouth has lots of lovely clifftop houses, and I’d love to claim one of those eventually. In London, my happy place is without a doubt the Ladies’ Pond at Hampstead Heath, where I could happily spend the rest of my days with a pile of books.

What’s your home addiction?

I'm a huge Le Creuset fan, so I'm working on a cast-iron collection for the future farmhouse-style kitchen of my dreams.

What is your next home project?

The walls in my flat are ridiculously high for someone who owns little to no art, so my next task is trying to find or paint lovely things to hang up there. My aim is to pick things up at nearby markets and shops so that everything feels unique to this space.
