RB: What in your work are you most proud of?
AT: I am extremely proud of plucking up the courage to produce an online magazine. Something in which we are breaking barriers here in the UK. We took a risk and went for it and the results have been fantastic. I am looking forward to the future.

RB: What’s inspiring you now?
AT: I am constantly inspired by meeting new people and discovering their talents. I have met some fabulous people lately off and online. I believe there is a creative soul in each and everyone of us.

RB: How would you describe your own home décor?
AT: Modern, cool with an urban edge to it. Many expect my home to be super girly but far from it. Maybe because I have an engineering husband. I have had to compromise 🙂

RB: What do you love most about your home and why?
AT: I love the warm atmosphere I have at home. There is nothing better than relaxing on my comfy sofa with dimmed lights and candles listening to music.

RB: What is the one thing in your home that everyone always comments on?
AT: My photos, my Marilyn posters and my lighting. People tend to always relax at my place.
