A kaleidoscope of colour at Birdies sports and social space
Hidden under the iconic Battersea Power Station train arches, interior architecture studio SHED has created a cocktail bar and playful golf course.
With over 30 years’ experience in the industry, Paula is still as passionate about leisure and hospitality design as she was when starting her first day at work.
Now entering its 21st year, Paula is really proud of the work her team at Fusion by Design have created.
My 3-year-old Golden Retriever, Bentley
He would be the best company for that unconditional love and to make me laugh. He is as daft as a brush…they say a dog is like his owner!
Crème de La Mer
This would be totally impractical for survival but a luxurious necessity. Anything or everything from their product range would be perfect.
My favourite social media site. Most people would probably rather escape social media but I think this is a great tool for seeing amazing places in the world. I have two folders to save images within Instagram – one entitled ‘Design’ and the Other entitled ‘Holiday’.
Rich and Smooth – no other explanation required.
A comfortable bed
I don’t need a lot of sleep but when I hit that wall, that’s it! Anyone can survive most things if they have a good night’s sleep and they are focused. I would need my memory foam mattress, pillow and heavy duvet…but the dog wouldn’t be allowed on the bed!
One of my all time favourite bands and a group I was lucky enough to see live.
Preferably the whole Ten album. This is my go to album when bored with all other music.
Never a truer expression spoken.
Madonna – Ray Of Light: I may not be the biggest Madonna fan but this song reminds me of the time I was living with my sister in Headingley, Carol is a great role model, super hard working and the person I can have the best belly laughs with. Our tour of Germany is still high on the list of the best times of my life!

Another memory song, one from my school years. I was lucky enough to enjoy all my educational years with great friends whom I am still in touch with today.
I was obsessed with his music whilst pregnant with my first child; most people craved food, I craved his music!
