If I hadn’t become an interior designer, I might have become a florist. There is something truly satisfying about being creative with nature. Working with living and perishable materials fills me with humility. I respect the materials that I’ve cut, picked or dried, and I go to considerable lengths to achieve a good result. Often, I photograph my floral arrangements, because then all the living flowers that I picked have not died in vain. They have been given a new lease of life in the photo. I’m particularly fond of autumn. The red, golden and brown hues are so beautiful, and reflect life’s transience. There is a certain melancholy about autumn decorations which I love.
