ealised that it

ealised that it doesn’t have to be overnight and you can be eclectic. You don’t have to have everything there and then. If you like a piece, go home with it and just keep on going back and getting other bits. Don’t be scared to not buy all the matching bits. I’m really boring and buy the matching bits but the more I’ve done this, different shapes and different colours work really well together as long as there is something structurally design-wise that works together. You’ve describe the collection S as contemporary with a hint of vintage glamour. What is your favourite colour for decorating? I like grey. I want a cement L polished wall that’s really industrial but I also love the emerald green in the collection. You can imagine it in a really beautiful old Victorian house with high ceilings and the coral pink is a lovely pink. I never thought I would love the cream but we have done sofa fabric in a cream white neutral colour. With my boys and dogs, I could never have my kids sleeping on that but if you don’t have kids and dogs it’s a really nice option. S What are your thoughts about dogs on the sofa? Do you let your dogs on the furniture? The rule is no dogs on sofas, L but everyone who has a dog knows that the front paws go up and you just have this one constant little back leg that tries to get up. They put so much effort into getting up there, by the time they get up I haven’t got the heart to get them off! So I’m a dogs on sofa kind of girl. S When it comes to design choices, would you ever choose upholstery to match your dog? Absolutely, I love my dogs! L They are the inspiration behind the grey flannel and grey suede material, they completely match the dog stuff. I’ve got pics up on Instagram of the dogs and showed them to the Harveys team. S What do you think makes a room and is comfort just as important as style? I think I like style, I’ve got L no shame to admit that, but ultimately you want somewhere people feel they’re welcome. I like people to walk into my home and feel comfortable and at ease and when they sit and congregate, it makes that.
