You're a Brit, do you see any similarities between London and Brooklyn? Which do you prefer?
"When we moved to America, we definitely didn't want to live in the ‘burbs. And we didn’t want a high-rise in Manhattan either. Boerum Hill in Brooklyn is about as close as you can get to how we lived in London with a bit of space and a back garden. We really love the ease of living in a small community like a village. We can walk and cycle everywhere, to school, to do the groceries, and always bump into someone we know. Here the weather is great, too. When it's hot, it's boiling and when it's cold, it's freezing; You get guaranteed seasons. Obviously, we miss our family and friends in England but many come over for a visit."

Tell us about the biz you own with your sister.
"Charlotte’s my sister and business partner at White Rabbit England. We started about 10 years ago when my daughter Florence was a newborn and her sons were both very young. We were both looking for some sort of low light for the nursery that could be left on when breastfeeding in the early hours of the day and also if they had trouble going to sleep. We tried to find something like the mushroom light we had shared when we were little. We couldn’t find one anywhere so we decided to start making them. We now have a whole range of nursery products from bedding, crib sets, blanket, cushions, Bone China White Animal night-lights, jewelry. All great gifts for baby showers and birthdays. Now I live in NY and our headquarters are in Cheshire in England. Most days we have meetings through Skype which has been amazing."
