She has been designing under this ethos for a career spanning 10 years creating beautiful homes for happy clients.

For Sally, a truly great interior must be both beautiful in form, and genius in function.

Having been approached by so many friends and strangers for interior design advice, Sally knows too well the frustrating struggle that homeowners and design enthusiasts face when seeking practical information.
