When you spend a lot of time with a particular person, or in a certain place, it’s inevitable that ideas will rub off on you. For the owner of this two-bedroom flat in south London, school holidays spent with her grandmother – tailor to Hindu princesses and Malaysian magnates – influenced her own style and design tastes. ‘My grandmother was Chinese and she married a Dutchman,’ she says. ‘They moved from Malaysia to Britain in the 1960s and their house was a real mix of Chinese antiques, Japanese artworks, mid-century furniture and Eastern fabrics, so I’ve always been drawn to a combination of exoticism tempered with modernity.’
