Charlotte Love, 26, grew up in Camberley, Surrey, with creativity in her genes. 'My dad used to paint signs for film sets and my mum is a dress-maker, so I have artistic roots,' says Charlotte. Creative subjects were her forte at school with art being her favourite.

She specialised in illustration at Bournemouth University, but a work experience stint at a lifestyle magazine set her on the path towards styling. 'I started to assist an interior stylist and I couldn't believe you could get paid for doing something so fun – I was hooked.'

Charlotte is now busy building up an impressive portfolio and has worked for top magazines such as Ideal Home, as well as making props for glamorous photo shoots. 'I love making things – as well as styling, and I sometimes get commissioned to create weird and wonderful props for shoots,' she explains.

Charlotte says her style keeps changing: 'Three years ago I was really into vintage, but I'm over that now. As an interior designer my taste will continue to evolve as I explore new trends and styles.'

You can see more of Charlotte's work on our Spring Awakening Gallery as well as on her blog:

Charlotte also shares her inspiration for a contemporary bedroom scheme with House to Home.
