Diary: Collins is so design-led

Damon Collins and his interior designer wife Gabriella kindly shared their Richmond home with the readers of Good Housekeeping this month.

The elegant abode which they spent three years renovating into their dream home is a tasteful "mix of modern and vintage" and replete with cute kids, Felix and Gigi, and a cute dog. Though the article focuses mainly on Gabriella's design credentials, in reality, the Rainey Kelly Campbell Roafle/Y&R's executive creative director's obsession with decorating is more than a match for his wife's. While Gabriella concentrates on their home, her husband has taken to decorating his agency's offices and is so obsessive that he has been known to disrupt meetings in order to straighten up a rug.
