1. Tell us a bit about you. What’s your creative field, style, passion etc?
I'm an interior Designer, stylist and trend forecaster. My style is very much centered around colour and playfulness, I love to mix old and new, colours that are a bit unexpected and interesting patterns and shapes. I'm passionate about inspiring others to experiment with colour and really find their own style that makes them happy.
2. How does your creativity play into your home aesthetic?
Within my home aesthetic I get to experiment with what colours might work together, which products and patterns - so creativity really plays a big part - and I don't always get it right! A big part of being creative is experimentation - so making mistakes and learning what works is super important - at home I can confidently explore all of these things.
3. What Capra Designs products did you choose and why?
I chose the Bud Pot, the Archie Pot & Small Archie Pot and the super cute Keepsake Boxes. I was drawn to these for their colour and shapes, the simple white of the Bud planter lets the cute retro shape be the hero and works so well against a coloured backdrop, while the fun shapes of the Archie Pots and Keepsake Boxes make great styling accessories - and they all work together.
4. What role does colour play in your home decor?
Colour has ‘main character energy’ in my home! Colour is the thing that inspires me, fuels my creativity and provides a necessary hit of dopamine when I see it. In short - it is my ‘be all’ :)
5. What do you love about living with plants?
My plant collection continues to grow, I'm not the greenest of thumbs but I've learnt which species of plants I can and can't look after so I have a pretty good balance now. Plants really uplift me and make a space feel more complete - and it's such a joy to see them grow and to be able to nurture that.
