SET THE TABLE

Now everything seems to revolve around meals (just me?), the ritual of setting the table has become one of life's simple pleasures. After seeing them in a pub in Hastings, I started using oyster shells as tealight holders, while these Tamegroute ramekins I picked up in Marrakech are ideal for decanting salt and pepper. As for the centrepiece, dried flowers look super chic.

CREATE AN INSPIRING WORKSPACE

With my partner and I both now working from home, we've utilised our space by creating distinct work areas. Just like in the office, it's the little touches like a lamp or plant that make all the difference. One easy way to add personality to your desk is with your books. Try artfully stacking them in a pyramid shape, placing an object on top to add height and interest to your workspace.

MIX AND MATCH

Because we buy and sell antiques, our interior is constantly evolving. We love blending eras and materials – here, a 1960s French rope armchair sits beside a naive antique stool and art deco wrought iron lamp. A Moroccan rug peeks into shot, while the rope-framed Audoux Minet mirror bounces light around the room. The muted palette pulls it all together.

BRING THE OUTSIDE IN
(AND THE INSIDE OUT)



Our garden has been our sanctuary during lockdown. We see it as an extension to our living room, but when the sun isn't shining, our houseplants lift the mood. Just looking at this aged 19th century Greek olive jar transports you to warmer climes. We've placed plants around both the inside and outside of the French doors to make the two spaces flow seamlessly.
