My Story

This Wild House Story
My story began over 3 decades ago when I realised at age 21 that I wanted to travel the world so I did as cabin crew for a long haul airline. I spent 20 years having fun trotting across the globe shopping for England at the most incredible & diverse places, exploring amazing countries & staying in beautiful hotels, this is where my passion for interior decoration started & when I fell in love with Africa. This amazing continent stole my heart I am constantly influenced & inspired by nature & tribal styles you will always find a touch of Africa in my aesthetic
How It Started
I hug up my wings in 2009 & went on to study interior design at KLC London for 3 years. When I graduated & now armed with a level 5 diploma I decided to realise my dream of setting up an interior design studio combined with a retail outlet showcasing my eclectic style that is a carefully curated selection of beautiful, unique items of furniture, lighting, object d'art & homewares
 About My Style
This Wild House eclectic style reflects my love of sleek mid century & 1970’s design, tribal influences & a touch of glamour! Combining beautiful vintage or antique pieces with new is how I like to do things creating a unique, stylish & comfortable space
This Wild House Meets Sandrock House
In June 2021 I joined forces with Philippa Mcfarlane a like minded interior design obsessive with a passion for dark interiors, dramatic furniture & statement lighting. Philippa has her own lifestyle brand & shop Sandrock House on historical West Street Dorking in Surrey which she began due to the success of her own award winning instagram account @sandrockhouse documenting the renovation of her then family home, think industrial grit with touches of glamour
Our mutual love of statement, one off interior pieces has now grown into a beautiful partnership, drawing upon our passion for sourcing & styling unique finds with flair & imagination. At our bricks & mortar shop you will see how our styles work seamlessly together & how we have managed to create a destination shop in the heart of Dorking in the beautiful Surrey Hills  
My website is only a taster of what I hold at Sandrock House, you are of course welcome to pop down anytime where you will likely find us excitedly hustling our unique finds into the store or styling our ever changing collection of enticing lighting, furniture & homewares to inspire our clients & augment their homes.
