I've spent the last 15 years working with the style teams at Country Homes & Interiors and Ideal Home, so there’s nothing I don't know about the latest interior trends – whether it’s what colour we should be painting our living room walls next season, or if 'cottagecore' cushions are a good or bad idea!

Six years ago I bought my own 'ideal home', a period-style property on the Essex coast. It's beautifully decorated throughout (by my Dad) in serene greys with pops of pink and Farrow & Ball Hague Blue – including the Flamingos wallpaper from the New Contemporary collection by Cole & Son. A favourite piece in my home is a marble-topped, gold-gilded side table – found in a local charity shop – and my latest investments, the drinks trolley of dreams and a West Elm-style coffee table from Aldi.
