Jo on Design and Decorating:
I like to compare my design style to a chameleon. I am able to blend my style with my surroundings, meaning I am able to change my views to fit those existing pieces or personalities for whom I am helping. However with every design I bring a clean lined approach with balance and comfort, plus every room should have a conversational piece within!
