I am very so­cia­ble. I’m very open to shar­ing, and I do Instagram my­self [pic­tured, right] be­cause I feel if some­one is go­ing to buy some­thing from me they need to know what I’m about – the good parts and the bad parts.

I found out only re­cently that there were cher­ries in my gar­den. Thou­sands of them! The whole lawn was cov­ered in red and I hadn’t even looked out­side to no­tice. I filled about 12 bowls with these cher­ries. It’s not that pic­turesque – just some ran­dom tree grow­ing in my gar­den. I live in Stoke New­ing­ton. I don’t want to live in May­fair – it’s not the zeit­geist around me. When I came to Lon­don [in the mid-2000s] I moved to Dal­ston, and you build your world from there.

Work­ing so much you ac­tu­ally start valu­ing your home space more be­cause some­times it’s the thing that you have the most con­trol over. My house is my ma­jor es­cape; some­times it’s like a gi­ant mood board where you hoard and col­lect ev­ery­thing. I moved in two years ago and still haven’t ren­o­vated it, so it’s kind of a non­go­ing-for­ward work in progress, but I think that will be my next project. I’m just try­ing to get all my other projects locked down be­fore I work on my own.
