Up-and-coming interior stylist Holly Phillips, 28, grew up in a creative, bohemian household in Cornwall. 'My dad's an artist and my mum's into craft, so I think they influenced me a lot,' she says. Holly graduated from Solent University in 2008 with a degree in Interior Design and Decoration and soon found she was drawn to styling. 'I read an online profile of an interior stylist and suddenly everything clicked into place,' she explains. 'I knew that was what I wanted to be.'

Holly has spent the last few years assisting top stylists and has already built up an impressive client base, including big-name brands such as B&Q and IKEA.

She says her look is eclectic, romantic and nostalgic and her favourite part of the job is working with creative people every day and improvising on the spot with props to get great shots.

You can see some of Holly's work in our 'Modern patchwork bedroom' gallery.
