The utility room is only the freaking hub of the Sutton universe, where all activities, humans, animals, deliveries and general comings and goings seem to focus. Who knew?

I am a ditherer. That might seem surprising for someone who appears to get a lot done, but I endlessly analyse decisions about the smallest details of a project.

I used to wonder what people were going on about needing boot racks and mud rooms on these American home programmes, until we owned a dog…now I get it. This installation in American White Oak is designed to help manage the pile of boots and coats that are cast aside on returning from walkies. It […]
