"I'm from the picturesque town of Coggeshall, and with barns and medival buildings I am surrounded by so much history. I love beams, Sage Green, and beautiful hand crafted furniture such as Swoon Editions, but I love mixing it in with new modern technology, and unusal materials, to create new styles. My house is very contemportary and minimal - and is a constant working project covered in many portraits of my two young boys. I will create mood boards, providing a range of ideas and concepts, with a simple work flow to ensure you're 100% happy at each stage" (Tara Pretty)
