Whilst my beach houses are individually styled, they share the same attention to detail: bringing together rare and exquisite pieces, matching them with the more familiar yet often overlooked, to create inspiring spaces; a reflection of years of travelling when I looked out for interesting pieces with the potential for unusual juxtapositions. And I have also worked with my twin sister Mitzi Bond - of Mitzi B - as her Teddington shop is home to ranges of furniture, lighting and an eclectic mix of accessories that help inspire my interiors.

Although some people might think of beach houses as a strictly summer affair, my beach houses are as popular in the winter as they are in the summer so to make them extra cosy Mitzi and I re-style all the beach houses for the winter. And of course we also dress them for the Christmas season, as you can see in this slideshow gallery on the right. Christmas decorations normally go up the week before Christmas but can go up earlier if you would like us to.
