Living Etc - - HOMES / ETC -

Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tion go-to? Can­dles for cosi­ness and flow­ers for a nat­u­ral aura.

What would we never see in your home? Clut­ter! My home is wel­com­ing and re­laxed, but also tidy. And, yes, it is pos­si­ble to have a cream sofa with kids and a dog.

Se­cret in­gre­di­ent for a suc­cess­ful din­ner party? Make sure guests have at least one thing in com­mon with the per­son next to them – and cook with love.

Can’t live with­out… Mu­sic. When I need a lift or an en­ergy boost that’s what I turn to.

What’s on your playlist? It’s pretty var­ied: Por­tishead, Florence + The Ma­chine, Ibiza techno and a bit of Lil Peep – that’s my son’s in­flu­ence.

Favourite tip­ple? I don’t drink, so mine’s usu­ally a vir­gin Bloody Mary. I like dis­cov­er­ing how each bar­tender puts their own spin on it.
