Talk us through the process of curating objects for your home?
No object ever stays in the same place for long at my house. I’m in a constant state of re-arranging. I tend to have a couple of focal-point pieces in each room- often vintage or pre-loved- and then I layer the space with textiles or artwork that riff off those hero pieces. I have been known to repaint a room just to match a new purchase rather than the other way round…
Are you a ‘casually browse to see what’s out there’ or ‘hunt high and low for the exact thing in my mind’ kind of vintage shopper?
A bit of both. I often find the best things when I’m not single-mindedly pursuing a niche item. But I also have a million alerts set up.
What type of object do you have most of in your home?
I can’t seem to resist mantlepiece trinkets like miniature ceramics, boxes, saucers and candlesticks.
