What do you like best about your home?

The light, bright airy rooms – they make this the perfect house for family living

Describe your style in five words

Homely, uncluttered, modern versus old

What’s your favourite local interiors shop and why?

Moko in Exeter’s Gandy Street is owned by a friend of mine who has great taste – she changes the stock all the time so you can always find something a bit different. I have loads of accessories from there dotted around my home. I always seeek out individual local shops when visiting a new town or country

What are your favourite national interiors shops?

I love Heal’s, Habitat and Selfridges

What’s your worst decorating disaster

I’ve learned that however hard I try I cannot live with woodchip wallpaper. I doesn’t matter how pretty a colour you paint it, I still hate it!

Tell us your decorating secret

Preparation, preparation, preparation. Put on some good music and be bold!
