A Victorian terraced townhouse set over five storeys, with five bedrooms and four bathrooms on the upper two floors; a double drawing room, family room, snug, study and hall on the first and ground levels, and a utility room, nanny suite and kitchen-dining room leading to a garden on the lower level. Settling here from overseas, the owners of this house in Primrose Hill chose the area for its quintessentially English architecture and bohemian feel. They loved the property’s original features and wanted their new home to be light and spacious, with plenty of storage and an eclectic British feel. As self-confessed ‘culture vultures’, the couple’s art collection formed the basis of their home’s colour palette.

My own Cotswold courtyard garden in a simple contemporary style. It has a strong formal structure that is designed to work throughout the seasons. I used mature trees in huge corten steel planters to create structure & shade in this south facing garden & added pretty planting to soften it & add seasonal interest.

Client redeveloped his outside space and wanted a poolside entertaining area for family and friends… Beefeater Profresco Signature range furniture & fridge, Napoleon built-in Pro 665 natural gas grill (i.e. hooked into main gas supply and run out to the garden so no gas bottle needed), Kamado Joe Classic III smoker, customer sourced his own granite worktops.

Uber cool gated development in Epping. Our brief was to redesign the space to the rear of the house. We sited the pool, specified some gorgeous Italian pool tiling, re-shaped the decking adding in curves to what was a very ordinary rectangular deck. Following on with the curves we added a sandstone paved area and within that a dining terrace with a chunky oak pergola to support pendant lighting over the new dining furniture. We used a drought tolerant planting scheme with a mediterranean palette. The exception to this was the addition of Hydrangea panniculata for those beautiful big white flowers in the summer. Rabbits were a big problem and plants were also selected with this in mind.
