I've had a passion for interior design since I was in my early 20s. At the time, I worked for an Italian architecture and interiors company. My job swayed towards architectural design for inside the home. Think space saving solutions, clever kitchens and bathrooms that work for the whole family, and bringing the outdoors in. Alongside this I went back to college and completed a short course in Interior Design. Those couple of years gave me a wealth of experience, but as I was living at home with my family, I was unable to put my work into practice.
Fast forward almost a decade, and I now own a home, which my partner and I have redecorated throughout. Living in North London, it's a small space, but we've made it ours.
Buying a home was an exciting time, but it's come with a few surprises along the way. On the day we moved in, we were faced with a large leak from our bathroom into the home below. This wasn't a quick fix, and required a complete overhaul of the bathroom. Luckily we couldn't stand the suite installed, so this marked our first project, and kicked off a years worth of renovation.
