Freelance Interiors and Lifestyle Editor, stylist, writer, content creator, copywriter, blogger
I’m Alison and I have worked in the wonderful world of interiors and magazine publishing for many years and have seen a lot of changes! You have to move with the times in this industry, so I still write, and style, and art direct interiors but I now also create content and write for digital platforms – it’s the future. I regularly write online features for Livingetc.com, idealhome.co.uk but I still also produce house features for House Beautiful, where I used to be the Interiors Editor, and write features for Country Living, Homes & Gardens, Good Homes, Your Home and Homestyle.
I also style for commercial companies including household names like M&S, Ercol, Dulux, Sharps and I have been styling food and small appliances for Brevile recently. Really there is no end to my talents!
I am well known in the industry and have a huge amount of experience and knowledge, there isn’t much I haven’t tackled at one time or another, so you are in safe hands.
I live in Surrey, so easy to get into London and I have driven all over the country for shoots.
When I am not working, I like to do some DIY but not the big stuff, just painting, upcycling, that kind of thing and I like to craft, making lampshades and cushions or embellishing the ones I have. I seem to have developed a sideline in quilt-making. I also volunteer for Home-Start helping vulnerable families with young children and I collect food for a food bank. I am also a big collector, but I have had to stop now, no more room!
