KERRY FRANSESInterior designerAfter she studied at Sotheby’s Institute of Art and then Inchbald School of Design, and did an apprenticeship with Selldorf Architects, Kerry Franses set up Franses Design in 2001. She lists Atelier AM, Axel Vervoordt and her mother, Jacqueline Franses, as key inspirations, and feels the London home she decorated for Jacqueline (from page 116) best represents her personal style: ‘Clean lines, natural fabrics and a mix of antique and contemporary furnishings.’ Her proudest undertaking is the ‘non-clinical, calm environment’ she designed for James’ Place, a male suicide-prevention centre in Liverpool.What single thing can transform a room? ‘Artworks hung correctly and not too high.’EMILY TOBINDeputy features and arts editorAfter working for Time Out in Hong Kong, Emily Tobin joined House & Garden eight years ago as a PA…

Wallpaper background: ‘Meadow (Pratum)’ (115/13039), from Cole & Son (NICHOLAS SEATON)The art critic John Berger talked about the pleasure of living with paintings in an essay he wrote for House & Garden in 1954: ‘Of looking at them deliberately when you happen to be in the right mood, of catching them out of the corner of your eye… of growing familiar with them.’ For me, pictures are vital in a room – unless it is deliberately designed to be devoid of art – bringing life, interest and huge pleasure. As Berger says, ‘Pictures are like extra windows.’ They add depth to a room. This month, to mark a busy time of year in the art world, we focus on art and living with art in its many forms – from…

the collector’s castle

The Gallery at Strawberry HillA 1550s crystal and silver-gilt jugA cabinet of miniatures designed by WalpoleThe main staircaseThe exteriorA carved wooden cravat from 1690Portrait of Catherine de Medici and her Children from the studio of François Clouet.A Roman sculpture of an eagleIn 1842, the contents of Strawberry Hill House – Horace Walpole’s flamboyant Gothic Revival mock castle in Twickenham – were auctioned off. It was, according to the catalogue, an ‘unrivalled and wondrous’ collection. The fact that the sale lasted for 24 days is proof of quite how much Walpole had amassed before his death in 1797 at the age of 79. It included everything from paintings, furniture and ceramics to rather more obscure pieces, such as a lock of Mary Tudor’s hair. The sale led to Walpole’s collection being…

all the fun of the fair

SASHA SYKESThe Irish artist and furniture-maker Sasha Sykes blends the organic and manmade in her work, in which she encases found and foraged materials in acrylics and resin. Having trained as an architect, she started experimenting with natural materials 16 years ago, and her striking screens, furniture, lighting and cubes are filled with everything from bird’s nests and straw to seaweed and feathers. London-based gallery Peter Petrou, which has worked with Sasha for three years, will be showing her work at PAD this year. ‘Sasha’s pieces offer us an intrinsic appreciation of a wider world of natural wonders,’ says Peter.TRIBAL ARTPAD always has a strong line of tribal-art specialists. Look out for two Paris-based dealers this year: Galerie Monbrison, which will be showing this Songye mask from the Democratic Republic…
