While on maternity leave, I loved experiencing Home Beautiful as a reader. Each month, I got to discover new homes, great interiors and plenty of wonderful advice – I can’t thank Katrina and the team enough for creating such beautiful issues while I was out.

I love prints too; a Swedish sofa I had recovered in a Matthew Williamson design is a cherished piece.

What are the key furniture trends for spring and summer in 2021? Anthony: “Less is more – that is always a good rule.

More recently, European designers are inspiring me, such as Joseph Dirand and Christian Liaigre. Their classic and clean approach to interiors…
