Describe your style: Interesting / More is More / Slightly obsessive / Fragmented.
Favourite element of your home: My room.
I am inspired by: Art, music, magazines, shapes in nature, interesting people.

I am obsessed with collecting: Little bits of everything – I’m trying to curb this at the moment. I would like more taxidermy.
