This blog began as an outlet for my obsession with interior design, basically because Mr VKH got bored and stopped listening!

I discovered a passion for designing and decorating after we bought and renovated our first property back in 2005 but it took me another four years to realise that it was something I should try to earn a living from.  I have since worked regularly styling shoots for Next Directory and Kitchens, Bedrooms & Bathrooms magazine, fitting them around my day job as a freelance graphics operator for TV production.

I have recently launched my own Indian-inspired designs under the name Piccadelhi.

One of my favourite aspects of blogging is being able to share all the lovely products and people that I come across with an audience that would perhaps be otherwise unaware just how much great British design there is away from the high street.

A few facts about me:

  • My favourite month is March.
  • Making small-talk makes me feel very awkward.
  • I'm a cat person and totally believe I was a cat in a previous life!
  • I could eat curry and rice until the cows come home.
  • I have an irrational fear of still, deep water - walking along a canal freaks me out.
  • My favourite flowers are paperwhite narcissus.
  • Bad grammar/spelling irritates the hell out of me.
  • When I was 13 I pierced my own ear.
  • I practise Bikram yoga.
  • I believe in Karma and that everything happens for a reason.
