I have a love of interesting objects and have been a collector all my life. My home is not minimal and white/ more shabby chic ; )

I am a designer currently working as a freelance stylist and teacher. I am also studying. I have an eclectic house that is an ongoing DIY project. There are many quirky items that make my home interesting and colourful. I often enjoy distressed textures in paint and fabrics that I feel reflects the period of the house. I like to have friendly, polite and approachable guests in my home as I feel it is important to feel safe and happy where you live. However, If you are a quiet person that needs your own space, the rooms are totally private and you will be undisturbed. Other hobbies of mine are gardening and cooking, and I have many interests - particularly the countryside, wildlife, trees and herbs.
