Back when I went freelance I had no idea how to find new work, what to do when I needed to hire props from a prop house for the first time, where to find set builder, florists, couriers an don’t even start me on the self-assessment tax thing! The Interior Stylists’ Facebook group grew and grew until we were all supporting each other with all kinds of difficult situations. The kinds of situations only another Interior Stylist or writer would understand. We live in this crazy interiors bubble where staying up all night to finish a round-up of new garden furniture feature or painting a ton of furniture for a shoot on your kitchen table so there’s nowhere for the kids to eat breakfast is the norm.
This website is aimed at stylists and writers having a place to promote themselves, along with assistants who need to be easily found along with recommendations. It’s also ideas for PRs who would like to share all their contacts in the directory, which is specifically for the interiors market, and reach all us freelancers who fall off mailing lists.
There’s also a place for anyone who works on photo shoots to be able to share their contact details – all in one place. Need a set builder? We have loads on the shoot services page. Want to discover the best couriers and prop houses? Check out their pages. Starting to write a news page at 9pm and need loads of cut-out shots and the PRs have all gone home to bed? Check out the Image bank page with links to image libraries where you can download shots whatever the time is – day or night.
