As a young child her family home was unique and designed from a series of four hexagons. Artwork surrounded the walls and one of her earliest memories was painting and drawing on the back of house plans. These childhood influences taught her to think outside the square, forming the idea behind the hexagonal identity for Valentine interiors + design.
