Home Truths

Living Etc - - HOMES ⁄ ETC -

Favourite thing about au­tumn? The leaf piles! We live on a hill and the leaves all tend to ac­cu­mu­late at the bot­tom. You can eas­ily lose a tod­dler in there...

Phrase used most fre­quently ev­ery day? ‘Get dressed first!’ Frus­trat­ingly, my kids would hap­pily spend their days without clothes.

De­sign icon you’d love to own? The Po­tence wall light by Jean Prouvé.

First piece of fur­ni­ture you ever bought? A solid teak bed. It was such a big in­vest­ment that I had to visit the shop four times be­fore I was com­pletely sure.

Last big thing that went onto the credit card? The MOT pay­ment for my old Tri­umph GT6. Still winc­ing!

Cof­fee or tea per­son? Cof­fee, ev­ery time.

Best things about liv­ing in Bris­tol? The cre­ativ­ity, the va­ri­ety and the mix of green spa­ces and ur­ban life.

In­te­ri­ors pet hate? Plug sock­ets – I ab­so­lutely hate see­ing them and try to cover them up. It’s a bit an­noy­ing for Rob when he needs one!
