“I’ve lived in London since I was two. It gets cooler every year. You can be anonymous or the complete opposite. It’s a great place to live.

I love the old markets– Columbia Road, Portobello, Kempton, all the traditions of London. If I go food shopping I prefer to go to a market rather than a supermarket. It’s very inspiring that we still have that culture.

You have to get on the property ladder. Even if you can just afford a box, buy it. Renting is such a waste of money. If you buy in the right place and do the property up you can sell it on and make money. You can buy slightly outside the centre – in the East End, or Kensal Rise or Queens Park in the west.

You can add value to your homeby putting really nice shutters up, sanding the floors, putting wallpaper up. You can dress your home in a ‘superficial’ way but it makes it look and feel nicer.

Never follow trendsif you’re buying to make money – you have to think about what other people want. Keep it neutral and think about what you’d want to see when you look for your next place.

If I design a piece of furniture it’ll be copied at a high-street level – great pieces are available at all price ranges. You can get great kitchens from B&Q. There are bargains all over town.

If a room is small, don’t paint it too dark. Also be conscious of lighting. Make sure window treatments don’t affect natural light.

Think about how youlive and plan accordingly. Ask yourself if you bathe or shower – if you don’t have room for both, just put in a shower. People spend more time in their kitchens so you don’t need a dining room. Have a fabulous table in your kitchen – you’ll use it more. That leaves more space for a bedroom and bathroom.”
