About me

Hi there! I'm News and Features Editor at Homes and Gardens, Livingetc, Country Homes & Interiors and Ideal Home.

I've been in journalism my whole working life, but only moved into the wonderful world of interiors in 2016 when I joined Livingetc as Deputy News and Features Editor for a year before moving into my current role.

These days I write about pretty much anything interiors-related (a LOT of kitchens, I have an addiction), along with home tech and new innovations. I also find recipes for some of the magazines, and write the food news for country Homes – perfect for someone who loves cooking (and eating, natch) as much as I do.

Design at home

I'm still a renter, but have recently got a place to myself so am figuring out my own interiors style...the flat's in a modern building so I'm going down the neutrals route, with pastel pops of colour on fabrics and vases to add some feminine warmth. My Pinterest board is for my 'one day' home, with a huge open plan kitchen-living space and a cosy snug with deep coloured walls and a wood burner. The dream!
