News Writer

Sara Hesikova has been Ideal Home’s News Writer since July 2023, bringing the Ideal Home’s readership breaking news stories from the world of home and interiors. Graduating from London College of Fashion with a bachelor’s degree in fashion journalism in 2016, she got her start in niche fashion and lifestyle magazines like Glass and Alvar as a writer and editor before making the leap into interiors. She feels the two are intrinsically connected - if someone puts an effort into what they wear, they most likely also care about what they surround themselves with. 

Aside from journalism, Sara has also dabbled in freelance copywriting and has worked with large retailers like Selfridges and Farfetch, as well as smaller brands such as Yves Delorme luxury bed linen. Despite working with some of these luxury platforms and brands, she always strives to buy second hand where possible and is always up for an upcycling or DIY project. And having recently just moved into an unfurnished rented flat, there will be a lot of that going on.

Ideal Home Truths

Where’s your happy place?

I’d say my bed. I’m proud to say I am a very good sleeper so a bed is a great place for me to be. I love sleeping in on a Saturday morning, as much as watching a movie from bed. More so than sitting on the sofa. But that might also be because of my current, rather uncomfortable couch…

What’s your home addiction?

These change so often! But one constant is ceramic crockery. To the point that I actually took pottery classes to make some myself and I’m planning on doing more to improve my currently very low skills.

What is your next home project?

I’m just moving into a new place that is fully unfurnished. The first order of business is getting rid of the yellow-tinted paint on the walls. And then it’s all about getting the right furniture in.
