What do you think are the most important features when designing a space?  I like it when people make an effort to reflect their personality as soon as they open the front door to a visitor. From a well-dressed entrance table, art that they love and even their favourite fragrance.

What is the one thing you would have to have in every property you ever lived in? A dog to rule the roost, oh, and a dishwasher.

What is your favourite colour? Green

What if your favourite piece of furniture? My bed, I splashed out on one of our new Prestige beds last year, it’s changed my life.

And finally, our ‘verging on the ridiculous’, quick fire questions:

  • Coffee or green juice in the morning? Coffee
  • What country would you most like to live in? South Africa
  • Bold colours or neutrals?  Neutrals in the UK, Bold in South Africa
  • Royal Academy or Tate Modern?  Royal Academy
  • Soho House or Firmdale?  Firmdale
  • North or South of the River?  South is best
  • Mini or Maserati?  Maserati
  • Sun or Snow Holiday?  Sun
