The kitchen table is made from an old mangle, or laundry wringer, also discovered in Martin’s neighbor’s barn. The cafe chairs have cushions made from French grain sacks.

“Consumers are getting much braver and people want their homes to be individual,” Jennifer says. “Rather than trying to copy whatever new trend is out there, people are becoming more experimental. Possibly this is because of the way social media has made [taking an interest in] interiors more mainstream. “Buying vintage is becoming increasingly popular, for example, as well as upcycling older pieces. This is partly an eco and budget issue, but it also allows for greater individuality.“For my clients, neutral colours used to be the norm, as they didn’t date,” she continues. “There was also an inclination to follow the design rules – you would have neutral carpets and a three piece suite, for example. But this is changing. “When people come to design their homes now, they want to feel something when they look at their room,” she says. “They want it to make them happy – it’s not just a room with furniture in it, they want to look at it and have their heart skip a beat.”
