Her love of the sea is reflected in her interior styling and product ranges, with the majority of her library named after seafaring objects, histories, and stories.

I have dreamt of a boathouse escape for many years and all of my dreams have come true in a recent visit to a space that captures it all, The Salty Dog. This miniature house provides all of the nuances of boat building within its own minute space.
