Ge­orge, what’s the best thing about hav­ing dogs? They live in the mo­ment and they help me do the same. They love to just lay with you, so it’s a won­der­ful way to de-stress.

Are they spoilt? Ab­so­lutely – they rule the roost. Bull­dogs are very wil­ful and if they don’t want to do some­thing, they won’t. So­phie isn’t in any of the pic­tures be­cause she de­cided not to co­op­er­ate.

What’s the best way to spend your week­end? I love to have no agenda, to just re­lax and work in the gar­den.

Book or ipad? Books be­cause they’re tac­tile. I love the way they look and smell.

What would be your dream item to find at auc­tion? I just found it!

It’s the Bi­tossi Kwan Yin Bud­dha bust (on the side ta­ble in the up­stairs hall). I was look­ing for one for the long­est time and I just got it this year. So that was the dream come true. Get the look The float­ing wal­nut side­board is an orig­i­nal fix­ture of the house. The chairs and ta­ble are a mix of vin­tage Hans J Weg­ner, Ch­erner and Arne Ja­cob­sen. The rug is from Pot­tery Barn.
