‘Design should be low key, chic and understated, but rich in detail.’ So says the owner of this 19th-century worker’s cottage, a designer who applies this philosophy to everything he creates, from a range of affordable bathroom furniture to a red-carpet evening gown. The 1950s have inspired the changes to the house. ‘It’s a design era that is infinitely user-friendly,’ he says. The circa 1958 curved chairs originally came from a Norwegian luxury cruise liner.
