Three tools you can’t live without: My beautiful wooden blocks, a paint brush and my lino-carving knives.
Favorite thing to look at: My husband!
The most magical place on Earth: An island off the west coast of Scotland called Mull.
The book currently on your nightstand: The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver.
Best studio jams: Desert Island Discs, a program on BBC Radio 4.
Most prized possessions: A beautiful embroidered cushion my daughter made for me, a painting of a room at Charleston Farmhouse by my lovely friend Lottie Cole and all of my interior, art, and gardening books.
Biggest pet peeve: That time goes by sooo fast. So much to do, so little time.
The most sage advice you’ve recently received: It was from Ben Fogle, a British broadcaster, adventurer and friend of ours, who said “It’s we not me.” Right now, this feels so apt, with “we” having so many meanings, from my family all stuck at home together to the wider UK community to all nations across the world. Acting together on a global scale feels more important than ever.
Best spot to hang in your hometown: The coffee barn at Plaw Hatch Farm, our local dairy and and farm shop. They make the best brew.
Go-to flower: All of them! They’re such a huge source of inspiration for me, from my Rose and Marigold patterns to my Pattee (which means “flower” in Hindi) and Buti (which is Hindi for “little floral print”). I just adore them.
Color Crush: Pink, pink and pink! I always have and always will love pink. It lifts my soul and brings me pleasure, whatever its form!
