LAUNCH EDITOR, CONDÉ NAST HOUSE & GARDEN The German interiors magazine, Architektur & Wohnen, did a feature in 1989 on Londoners’ bedrooms. I lived in an 18th-century ruin in Spitalfields and this was me on my bed, another old ruin that came out of a Scottish castle. The headboard was embroidered with peacock feathers and twirly bits and the curtains were lined with red tartan. I was going through a tartan phase at the time and my dressing gown was a rather nasty green and black one. I thought it made me look like somebody from a bygone era. I loved that. I didn’t know this was going to be the cover. All I remember of the moment when I first saw it was worrying that my hair looked like a wig. It still does and I hate it.
