Q: What are three words people use to describe you?
A: Compassionate, curious, and intuitive.
Q: How did you get the idea to collaborate with Sarah Flint?
A: In 2019, a client told me that Sarah Flint had opened a pop-up in Soho that was wall to wall Morris & Co. wallpaper. The thought of beautiful shoes and Morris & Co. designs excited me to no end, so I researched the shop and was knocking on the door the following day. The entire space was immaculately styled with Willow Bough, Strawberry Thief, and Kelmscott Tree. After I met Sarah, it was very clear that we had to collaborate!
Q: What’s your favorite interior design trend?
A: A layered look mixing modern and traditional—very grandmillennial.
Q: What’s your favorite part of working with Morris & Co.?
A: I have a few. I appreciate the many colors and details that go into the designs. Some may contain 36 or even 42 colors. I also love working for a company that is so steeped in history and continues to uphold the integrity of the original Morris & Co. designs and sustainability practices.
Q: What’s a wallpaper or fabric you love?
A: I fall in love with a new design every week. This week, I am obsessing over Willow Bough because of all the stunning new colorways that we have just launched with Ben Pentreath.
Q: What is your favorite city to travel to?
Q: Name a novel you recommend to all your friends?
