I work closely with international, private, institutional and corporate collectors as well as architects, designers & decorators worldwide.

I advise clients who wish to source specific pieces and either form or enhance collections. I can either work directly with the client, or collaborate with the architect/designer/decorator working on a project sourcing pieces within a specific budget.

I handle the sale of pieces, discreetly, on consignment from private, corporate and institutional collectors.

I give advice on acquiring pieces at auction and bid, confidentially, on behalf of clients.

I advise on fine art insurance and can obtain competitive rates.

I, discreetly, undertake valuations for insurance, probate, estate and inheritance tax.

Installation, Placing, Hanging & Lighting

I advise on the acquisition and placing of furniture and art within interiors so that they create the effect and fulfill the function that the client is seeking. This includes advice on hanging and lighting.

 

Interior Design Service

A significant lifestyle change has taken place over the last 5 years, and the inclination is to furnish homes with an eclectic and uncluttered mix of furniture, pictures and works of art from different periods. Early furniture mixes very well with modern and contemporary pictures, ceramics and works of art, and the juxtaposition is exciting, dynamic and representative of the 21st century. Conversely, old master pictures, drawings and tapestries mix very well with modern and contemporary furniture creating highly, stylized interiors.

I create interiors which are tailored to each client¹s lifestyle and living requirements and reflect their personality and taste.
