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.
