Home Stylist, Marketing & PR

I’ve always had a passion for interiors ever since I can remember! When Sarah took the idea of home staging to Jon, I knew this was something special that I wanted to be involved with from the start. At that time, I had just finished completely renovating my own property, which I’d thoroughly enjoyed throughout the whole process (except the mess!), so much so, that I’d actually undertaken an interior design course in my own time.


With a combination of love for the job, plus the drive and ambition to make House of Arden work, Sarah and I would spend weekends and evenings after our day job carrying out home stagings on all sorts of properties from one-bed apartments to six-bed mansions.


Although I still thoroughly enjoy styling homes when I get the chance, the majority of my work is now office based, looking after client relationships, admin and marketing. Since starting out in 2017, we’ve come long way and I couldn’t be more proud of the company we’ve achieved today.


When I have spare time, I still love updating my own home, changing up paint colours and accessories as the seasons change. I also love travelling the world with my husband, spending time with our four cats, family and friends, creating new recipes for informal dinner parties, and when the weather’s good, getting out in my garden.
