Evelyn Carr-White, Founder
I have always been fascinated by the spaces people choose to surround themselves in. As a child, I was a total window-peeper, largely uninterested by the inhabitants, but keenly inquisitive about the art, lighting fixtures, wallpaper and furnishings I could steal a glance at. Fascinated as to why special places like museums and churches made one feel heightened - open and at peace simultaneously. The possibilities evoked by a restaurant doorway, a mohair banquette, the gleam of polished wood in candlelight. Choices made deliberately and yet, when in balance, seemingly fated.
My design sense is guided by an understated theatricality; comfort that summons an invitation to possibility. I love the inherent challenges presented by different spaces. One is never truly starting with a blank canvas: the landscape, structure, light and purpose all guide the outcome. I know a design is working when it seems to hum; the right balance existing in a state of delight between all elements.
