What’s your go-to classic colour choice?
I love many colours, but a classic colour choice for me is a deep Sea Blue that one can combine with many other shades of colour.
Is there a hotel that’s most inspired your work?
Fundu Lagoon on Phemba Island was one of my places of Inspiration for the Jungle Traces. It is so remote, set in the pristine lushness of that Island.
Where do you go to spot new styles?
My most recent travel for soaking up all the newest interior trends was Maison&Objet in Paris.
Do you have a favourite restaurant?
At the moment it is Adis in Cape, Ethiopian traditional food.
Who or what is your biggest design influence?
I follow Lee Edelkoort’s design trends and the book ‘Talking Textiles’ is my constant source of inspiration.
