Writer and Assistant Stylist
Hi, I’m Sally thanks for stopping by. I’m an experienced freelance journalist, specialising in interiors for over five years. I’ve written and styled features for a range of the glossy interior magazines including 25 Beautiful Homes, Real Homes, Good Homes, Homes and Gardens, Essential Kitchen, Bathroom, Bedroom and Kitchens, Bedrooms & Bathrooms. I have sourced and styled homes for four front covers three for KBB and one for Real Homes. Before my life as a journalist I was an Account Manager in consumer PR and corporate communications. Amongst various roles working in a busy agency and press office over the years I have managed press events, photoshoots, exhibition stands and sponsorship deals with various clients including The National Trust and Classic FM.
I”m looking to use my project management and editorial styling skill set to work in the world of commercial styling. I would like to use my knowledge of image creation and shoot production to work on a bigger scale and as part of a creative team. I have been writing the Appliance Focus & News and Buyers Guide for KBB for the last two years. This involves curating around 30 design led images a month as part of the features. I now have a deeper understanding of what is needed from an image not only to fit with the design and trends of the magazine but also how to collaborate with the brands and PR’s effectively.
