His clients span English aristocracy and Middle Eastern royalty, Russian oligarchs to international business men and women, and for each he produces a unique, balanced and tailor-made home. He has been awarded Best Interior Designer by three highly respected magazines: World of Interiors, House & Garden and Elle Decoration.
