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.
