A LIttle about me
Over the past 10 years I've worked in London as an interior designer for various companies undertaking high end commercial and residential projects and also freelance consultations. I'm inspired by Scandinavian design (being half Danish), minimalism and craftsmanship.
During the past few years I've had to slow things down a bit due to my health condition Hydrocephalus, needing multiple brain surgeries. Thankfully writing for my blog has enabled me to continue my passion for design and also embracing the world of freelance design and styling.
My portfolio spans from luxurious bathroom design, high end residential interior design, colour consultations, surface specification, retail showroom design, and interior styling. I also have experience with project management, CAD, scheduling, product sourcing, bespoke detailing and furniture designs.
Companies I’ve work with include Fired Earth, Cp Hart, Day True.
From small scale, still life to interiors and lifestyle shots, styling has become an integral part of my career.
This allows me to be creative with new products, keeping up on design trends, colours and materials.
Sourcing products, working with brands and companies is something that I really love. Having had years of experience doing so with my interior design it's great to use this skill for my styling.
I've led my own styling shoots in collaboration with photographer Ola O Smit. Images are featured in my portfolio. I have also worked assisting styling shoots for magazines which is an incredible experience.
I write primarily for my blog where I feel I found my voice. This is something I've really grown to love.
Working as a designer has always been my main focus but having writing for my blog since 2010 I feel that it's becoming an even keel.
I've written for online publications which include design tips and interviews.
As early as I can remember I have always been interested in crafts. Even to my Mum's dismay when I cut up my cow slippers to make a photo-frame and selling homemade scrunchies in the playground at school. Arts and Crafts have been a huge part of my life having been to Arts college and graduating from Nottingham Trent University with a BA honours in Decorative Arts.
My skills gained were broad from glass-work, textiles, paper making, metal-work, ceramics, drawing with lots of design research too. I specialised in ceramics and still dream of having my own kiln one day.
I've continued crafting and making and it has become a regular feature on my blog and work has featured in magazines. I also collaborate with companies on my blog such as Liberty's.
