Little idyll

 An amazing open space with four clearly differentiated levels - when you look through the large glass doors, you can see every space in the house.

So, going back 20 years, my first job after art college was on the Pimlico Road at antiques dealer Christopher Howe. What a start. Highlights? There were many. From greeting the runners pulling up in their vans outside the store to collaborating with some of the best craftsmen across the UK (and then there was that time when the cast of Friends dropped by). So it was a happy day when I got to reconnect with Christopher on this special project in the Cotswolds. The layering of furniture, the easy combination of styles, the perfect proportions and overall thoughtful design sums up the HOWE ethos through and through. Glad to have been part of it.
