"Do not covet your ideas. Give away everything you know, and more will come back to you." - Paul Arden.
After working in the interiors industry for more than a decade, it's time to give back. And so I am sharing all that I have learnt the best way I know how - through words and images, and sometimes combining the two with visual storytelling.
The first step in this new direction was to create a book that encapsulated all that I had learnt about homes. After five years as deputy editor of a leading interiors magazine, and an equivalent amount as a freelance interiors writer and stylist I realised that there were some places that instantly felt warm and welcoming. They were beautiful in the true sense of the word. They created an emotional connection as well as serving an important function - to meet our needs on many levels. I wrote about how we can create a genuine home in This is Home: The Art of Simple Living.
More recently I have created a series of courses to share my knowledge in a practical way. The first workshop, a Styling Masterclass, sold out in under 48 hours. And now an online course is in the works. Please subscribe to be the first to know when registration opens.
And I am opening my notebooks in this space. It is a way to share the practical day-to-day elements of being a stylist and interior consultant. Subscribe to receive monthly updates from my little black book, as well as style notes, behind-the-scenes insights, news and notes from home, as well as tips on running a creative business.
