Frances left the United Kingdom after training in the fields of diet and stress management to live in Malta, where for several years she was a partner in the development and design of a successful restaurant business. The change of government motivated a return to England where she became involved in the renovation and decoration of property both inside and outside London. In the early 1990s Frances moved to the South of France with a view to making property improvement investments and was soon asked to offer this service to owners of homes on the French Riviera. For the last 15 years she has directed Carlton Signature.

After having graduated from Art School with a diploma in painting and sculpture, Pamela joined the London Branch of a highly renowned Berlin Gallery specializing in neo-expressionalism, before creating her own business connected to corporate design venues. She expanded into private interior architecture with clients based in Italy, the United States and London and acts as a consultant partner for Carlton Signature.
