Seize the day or hit snooze?

In summer, it's seize the day, but in winter I like to hibernate. I love summer because the days are so long that they seem to present a lot of possibilities – and I'm a time-optimist so I try to cram a lot in.

 

What motivates you in the morning?

I have a few different podcasts that I like to listen when I'm getting up and getting ready. This American Life remains a favourite. Also, food. If there's something nice downstairs to eat, that’s a surefire motivating factor.

 

What would your dream weekend involve?

Waking up in a new city in a nicely designed hotel, browsing vintage furniture shops for inspiration and treasures, socialising with relaxed people, eating lovely food and hopefully being handed a well-made bloody Mary.

 

What outfit are you most looking forward to wearing now we’re allowed out, and where will you wear it?

I got a really nice shirt dress with flowers on the bottom to wear to the opening of my most recent project ‘Daytrippers!’ at V&A Dundee earlier in July. It ended up going really well with the exhibits – two customised Christiania cargo bikes transformed into mini-design exhibitions featuring beach towels and wildflower seeds. I'm looking forward to the dress getting a few more outings before I spill something on it.
