After a degree in History of Art from Edinburgh University, a couple of years in art publishing (Phaidon, Macmillan Press, The British Museum), and a few more in interior design (Candy & Candy), I decided to take a break to look after my growing family.
About a year ago, I started The Interior Spy as a way of keeping in touch with the interiors world, publishing once a week. I comment on all things interiors-related that appeal to me personally. Everything on this blog I would either happily specify for a design scheme or (if possible, and) have in my own home.
I have recently slipped happily back in to interior design and in addition, I work as an interior stylist, in its many guises:
I have been lucky enough to assist on editorial shoots for magazines, to style for brands and to assist on house shoots. The Interior Spy has now blossomed into my portfolio of styling and interiors. As quality not quantity is key, I style, photograph and write all posts, which are now published every two weeks. All images and styling are my own (unless stated otherwise).
Where possible, I list where you can source the goodies. Just mention The Interior Spy if you go ahead and buy any of them-please!
OK it’s over quoted BUT, as William Morris says,
“Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”
