Interior and furniture designer.




Miniature easel With a £30 budget, I would plump for one of these cute miniature easels, in either oak or mahogany, from Green & Stone on the King’s Road. They’re a neat little way to display vintage postcards or family photographs.

Prices start at £24.75 for a tripod easel from Green & Stone, greenandstone.com


Framed butterflies This framed set of butterflies is absolutely stunning. The colours are magnificent, and it would make a great starting point for a collection – you could buy two sets for £300.

From Insect Frame UK, this trio of butterflies costs £129.95, insectframe.co.uk


1940s coffee table I would choose this delightful 1940s coffee table – the lines are spectacular and it’s almost impossible to find tables that look exciting and not just like blocks in the middle of the room! This certainly has magic at £2,200.


This mirrored coffee table with cheval legs costs £2,200 from Kulik Selzer, kulikselzer.com
