A short extract from Style:

‘Our relationship with style is complicated. At times it might appear vacuous, a little too surface focused. Certainly, when it comes to creating a home, it can feel as if there are many more important decisions to make. But if you don’t have a clear understanding of who you are, and how to express that in your home, it’s easy to become distracted and create what you think is appropriate rather than what is meaningful. This can lead not only to costly mistakes but also to a home that doesn’t feel like you.

And, whether you’re working by yourself or engaging the services of a design professional, getting a clear idea of your style is the first and most important step in any project. It should be a priority before you start making any design decisions, sourcing or spending. Taking the time to understand your style and become intimate with your own visual vocabulary creates a foundation that will be your anchor in the most intense times and be your guide through unexpected turns on the journey to creating a home.’
