What’s your role in the company?

I’m one of the Buyers within our Homewares and Furniture categories so it’s my job to bring you all the beautiful products our suppliers have on offer. 

How long have you been with Zanui?

I’ve been with Zanui for just over a year now!

Describe your favourite interior style and why?

It’s a mixture! I love Mid-Century, but injected with some Art Deco styles and with an urban pop-culture flair. This is definitely an influence from my Granny, combined with my own love for bright colours.

What new products do you currently have in your wishlist?

I have a lot of beautiful rugs on my wishlist at the moment. My style is a bit peculiar so I love anything that is eclectic and unusual. My wishlist right now has so many products from the Ted Baker range. I usually think about these things for months before deciding what I like, so we’ll have to wait and see which one I eventually choose!

Once again, a mixed bag! I love classic vintage posters such as our BALLY range to large, abstract, bold, and colourful prints and paintings. We have some beautiful ones by Claire Desjardin.

What piece of furniture are you currently on the hunt for?

I desperately need a new oversized rug for my living room to add a pop of colour and some depth. I also wouldn’t mind finding a new coffee table. I don’t know what style yet, but I’ll know when I see it!

What advice would you give to anyone exploring their interior style?

Don’t be scared to change your aesthetic and don’t be too strict with yourself either. You don’t have to follow every aspect of a particular style – not every piece will suit your taste, and that’s okay! Start small and then go big and have fun with it!

What’s your favourite product at Zanui at the moment?

That’s like asking to choose your favourite child… but the Brooklyn Drinks Trolley and the Kylie Three Legged Linen Dining Chair both by Cafe Lighting & Living have to be up there.

What’s an essential styling tip you apply to every home?

It’s a simple tip but measure twice and cut once. Looking for a statement sofa? Measure and map out the space so that all the pieces fit perfectly and you still have enough room to breathe.

And to finish this off right, what’s your cocktail of choice?

A really, really good espresso martini, but truthfully, anything!
