As a Graphic Designer you will often find Natalie gushing about her passion for all things creative and sharing her ideas with everyone and anyone who will listen. If she’s not decorating her house you will find her cooking up recipes from her foodie family or propped up in a cocktail bar around town.

Firuze is headstrong but a fan of cute things. Although she’s a minimalist on the outside, she’s overly technical on the inside. As a design consultant, Firuze is always on hand to offer up advice on creative and technical trends. She’s a London lover but New York dreamer who loves the city lifestyle. Firuze considers herself an interior designer in training, DIY hobbyist and a lover of Michelin star dining for a bargain price.
