My story


LEEDS_DSC6713Welcome to Dahlia – an online magazine dedicated to flowers, interior styling and lovely homeware finds.

After studying printed textiles at Chelsea School of Art, my love of all things colourful and interior based continued after a lucky break working as lifestyle assistant at Woman & Home magazine 19 years ago. Since then my freelance career has covered all aspects of interior journalism and styling, and I have worked for Good Homes, Country Living, Grand Designs and Ideal Home and write regularly for KBB, Real Homes, House Beautiful and Period Living. I’m also the News Editor of 91 Magazine.

I have worked for a number of commercial clients on projects for Ikea Life, Freemans, WH Smith’s and Tesco Magazine, and I work at Mamas & Papas as a prop stylist four times a year. I also write regular blog posts for company websites.

I have recently written my first online course, Style with Blooms, that shows you how to style with flowers in your home. It covers everything from the importance of colour to sourcing flowers, learning about composition and display and how to make a seasonal wreath. Enrolment for the next class opens end of April 2019.

If you would like to speak to me about the following: interior and floral collaborations, copywriting, styling and house features or if you have a home that you think could feature in a magazine, please contact me below:

I can be found posting on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest
