In her latest book “A Frame for Life” she writes ” I learnt as a child in west London that design was a potent, magical thing. I grew up in Shepherd’s Bush and watched with fascination the demolition of the streets to make way for new roads and new buildings. As the wrecking balls made short work of the rows of terraced houses, you could see the sequence of lives lived there in the layers of tattered wallpaper that spoke of rooms and the multitude of relationships and people that had once inhabited them…Home is your corner of the world
