He is widely known for his bespoke collection of hand-printed fabrics, sought-after for their chic handcrafted look. He writes a popular weekly column for Lonny, and his country house was featured in Ronda Rice Carman's Designers at Home: Personal Reflections on Stylish Living. His own first book, An Invitation to the Garden, is due out from Rizzoli in April 2014.
