Cook and home­ware de­signer for Port­meirion, so­phiecon­


I find that sell­ingan­ is such an amaz­ing re­source for stylish pieces. I am cur­rently work­ing on a men’s dress­in­groom pro­ject and I think this charm­ingly sim­ple de­sign will work re­ally well in the Ed­war­dian room, which has dark-brown mar­ble and wood fin­ishes.


This clas­sic, an­tique-style chan­de­lier would work amaz­ingly in my coun­try home. The house was once owned by the Duke of Welling­ton, whose oak-leaf sym­bol fea­tures heav­ily in the cor­nic­ing around the build­ing. I also love the idea of mighty oaks spring­ing from tiny acorns – mag­i­cal.


I adore the clas­sic sim­plic­ity of these el­e­gant knobs, and though they are nor­mally used for cab­i­nets, I will be us­ing them on the win­dow shut­ters of a Re­gency house, to match the door knobs that are al­ready there.
