I got the idea for ‘Happy Home’ after renovating our Edwardian semi-detached house, because little by little, as my husband and I finished each room, we found our lives getting easier and our happiness levels increasing. I really believe that carefully thought-out interiors can enable you to live your life as you’d like to, both in practical ways (storage that ensures you have things to hand when you need them, furniture chosen and arranged in such a way as to ensure sociable gatherings of family and friends) and in aesthetic ways – by finding a style that you love, which also suits your lifestyle, and knowing how best to use it in your particular space. To find out more about my book, click here.
