Job Title

CIP - Chief Interior Pug

I began my life in beautiful North Yorkshire born into a pedigree family and nurtured from an early age by lovely farmer John & his wife Julia, until my mummy came to collect me at 10 weeks of age. Mummy (Rachel Bates) was looking for a super-talented 'CIP - Chief Interior Pug' to place at the head of her design team and she could not believe it when she learned that farmer John in his previous life had worked for Christian Dior! 
She knew this was a sign and snapped me up immediately.

Mere colour, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied with definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways.
Oscar Wilde

I cannot pretend to feel impartial about colours. I rejoice with the brilliant ones and am genuinely sorry for the poor browns.
Winston Churchill

My passion for colour and all things beautiful is just as fervent as my mummy's and can be best described by the  quotes above from two very wise and special men, whom I have great admiration for, Oscar Wilde and Winston Churchill. 

Life at Rachel Bates Interiors is incredibly busy and exhausting, but I am a faithful and dutiful ambassador for my mummy and the RBI Angels.
'What can I say,  It's a dogs life, but some talented little pup's got to do it, and it might as well be me!' 
To quote one of my favourite doggies of the big screen, scrappy-do “ da da da da dadaaaa Puppy Power”

Bye for now, loves, licks and woof woofs, Arabella xxx
