Now the couple have got a taste for renovation, and recently bought a house in County Clare and renovated it from scratch. “In Ireland, things are a bit cobbled together,” says Ann Louise. “But I like things to look real. It’s not like I want everything Eames. I like places to feel homely. There is nothing worse than feeling like we can’t relax – it’s all about comfort. Nick has a good eye; he has a very three-dimensional view, so I just sit back and trust him. We did our Irish house in sections. We got so far with the builders, then we stopped them once they’d put up the walls and Nick and his father did the rest. They would do a five-week spurt, living out there while I was back here. We’ve learnt from it and on our next project we are going to have an architect.” That project is a farmhouse in a national park, back up north. “The building is quite derelict,” she says. “But the plan is to move there. We have a lot of friends in Scarborough. We’ll still be able to work in London as we will live 45 minutes from the station and the train journey to London is only two hours. We’ll either like it or we won’t. We’ll have to see.”

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!
