There are many designers whose style I love but here are some:
Federico Forquet, who turned a hugely successful career in fashion into designing beautiful homes and gardens.
Bunny Mellon, a trailblazer of taste in both interiors and landscapes. I was actually reading a book about her when pregnant and named our daughter after her.
Georges Geffroy – what he did for Christian Dior was so rich and layered.
Axel Vervoordt, a dealer and designer after my own heart, with the most exceptional taste and refined eye. To me, he epitomises the practice of restraint.
David Nightingale Hicks – I love his black high-gloss walls, and obviously his prints made him famous. I’m generally drawn to designers who have their own distinct aesthetic.
Jacques Grange – he layered so beautifully and in such a considered way. I especially love the spaces he designed for Pierre Bergé and Yves Saint Laurent.
Luis Barragán – the way he used light, shadow, form and texture was so thoughtful.
