"My Nana held a special place in my heart, and I spent many years in her

care, watching and learning about her life. She was at home in the garden, in the kitchen, in

her elegantly decorated home and in the presence of others – where she quickly charmed and

delighted everyone who had the fortune to meet her. I was a student of all things Nana, and I

quickly found my domestic identity through her strong influences. That journey has brought me here, to Open Home."
