With a first-class honours degree in fashion with printed textiles from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Ann Louise was snapped up by Liberty’s at her graduation show. But it was inevitable she would become her own boss. “I was brought up in a self-employed family,” she says. “My parents had a clog shop together, and a takeaway restaurant. So being my own boss is in my blood.” Over the past ten years, the company has gained a starry clientele, including the likes of Katie Holmes and Jessica Biel. 

Ann Louise, who is eight months pregnant with her second child, and Nick are both from near Scarborough. But they met at a Paul Weller gig in London. They set their sights on this amazing loft apartment that sits atop a converted warehouse when they first saw it in 1998 while visiting a friend who lived in part of the complex. “We knew this flat was being developed by the previous owner, so we wrote to the managing agents of the building. But we didn’t hear back for a while, so we forgot about it. Then, suddenly the agents got in touch – and they sold it to us. We loved the complex so much that we bought it having only seen it through the letter box, so we were expecting it to be a lot smaller. When we eventually saw it, we loved the space, even though it was a state.”

It takes a really keen eye to get a house done up in a unique way. Not everyone can pull just any old "look" off. Especially if you want to be bold and outspoken about your design choices. But I have seen some interior designers trawl auctions and garage sales looking for storage treasures to decorate clients' houses with. It's actually quite interesting how they can pick some old looking junk off the street and with a bit of work have it transformed into something elegant and suitable for a second life in a new house! It's a veritable skill!

I love the vibe of a cozy loft themed apartment. It's relaxing and peaceful.

I don't think that I have the foresight to plan a house in Technicolor. I would much prefer my storage shelves and other fixtures in the house to be a nice neutral colour. It's boring, I admit, but at least I don't have to worry about whether things coordinate as long as I stick to the colour theme!
