We recently got a chance to ask the wonderful Victoria about her life and interior design style. She lives in South West England, in a gorgeous traditional classic English home.  

How do you start your day?

I’m definitely not a morning person, so they always tend to be a bit of a rush as I treasure every minute in bed! However, when I am up and about a shower and a cup of tea is an absolute must.


How would you describe your home interior?

I would say traditional English style with neutral tones. I love antiques and vintage shops, anything with a story or some history to it.

How do you relax?

Either a nice hot bath or cosying up by the fire.


What makes you happiest?

Being with family and my dogs.



Have you got a favourite place to travel?

I always love France, the scenery, the food, the people, the fashion. It’s a very beautiful place.


Where do you go for advice?

Always my husband, I often find talking things through helps you figure out what is the best thing to do.

What is your favourite book?

Wuthering Heights. It’s dark and just so tragic but it’s just so beautiful, I don’t know how many times I’ve read it.


What do you think is our most important environmental issue to tackle?

It has to be climate change. Its effects are so far-reaching across the whole world, it impacts every one of us in some way.

What are your favourite things to do when you have time off?

Living in the countryside with two dogs we are so lucky, it gives us lots of opportunity to be outside. I absolutely love a long walk in the countryside, especially in spring when everything is cool, lush and green.

What does success mean to you?

To me, success is being happy, and I think being completely happy and contented is a bit of a journey. It’s easy nowadays to get swept up in a busy lifestyle, I think it’s important to refocus every now and then and appreciate what we have.

Victoria loves the Black pepper and Lime:

'I love candles, I always think they have the ability to make a space suddenly more homely and are a real luxury. In the past, however, I’ve really struggled to find a scented candle that gives off enough of a scent without being too overpowering. 
What I loved about the Arokiyam candle is firstly the candle match questionnaire, which matches you to your perfect scent, it can be really difficult ordering fragrances online, but this matched me perfectly to black pepper and lime. The scent is absolutely beautiful and really refreshing it fills the room without being overbearing.'
