Having been in the styling business for over twenty years, Sophie’s probably best known as a judge on BBC2’s The Great British Interior Design Challenge. She lives in a renovated Brighton warehouse with her husband, Tom, and their son.
A CLEVERLY CARVED-OUT SPACE
Arranging sofas away from walls creates a cosy living area in Sophie’s open plan space. Oversized rugs help too, she says.
MORE IS DEFINITELY MORE
A tapestry bench rescued from a car boot sale takes pride of place alongside other antiques and colourful artworks.
“I’m quite a maximalist, so I like to feather my nest with lots of things and it pleases me how they all jostle together. There are lots of memories tied up in the items I choose to display, which makes this space feel like home.”
MIX AND MATCH
Antique chairs, colourful tableware and geometric wall tiles give a fun, Mad Hatters tea party feeling to the kitchen.
ANYTHING BUT BORING
Sophie’s colourful books and keepsakes line the walls of the open living area, where the family is known to recreate key moments from Strictly Come Dancing.
