a house of many aspects

home tours follow url in print

When I was the features editor at Period Living magazine many moons ago, one of my favourite duties was running the Readers’ Awards, an annual event that invited readers to put their homes forward to be featured in the magazine. As the post arrived each day, I was very excited to open up all the entries, to see the before and after pictures, and to read the incredible renovation ups and downs people had endured for the love of their period home.

When I received one particular entry, presented in a very organised binder full of pages that mapped out the journey this couple had taken, I knew straight away it was a winner and I couldn’t wait to visit in person with photographer Brent Darby. Jennifer and Laurence Bristow-Smith transformed a neglected Victorian country house into a calm and restful space that also helps them earn a living, they run a B&B and holiday cottage business from home. Well, who wouldn’t want to stay here?!?

Hi, I’m naomi jones, a freelance interiors writer and stylist, and mum to Lillie-Mae. For many years I was the features editor at Period Living, but after spending a year with my daughter after she was born in 2011, I figured a freelance life would allow me to be with her as much as possible while giving me the freedom to keep up with my passion for styling and writing about people’s homes.

finding beauty everywhere

As an interiors writer and stylist specialising in real home features for interiors magazines, I get to travel all over Europe to style people's homes, so on this blog I'm going to be sharing some of the lovely homes I visit, as well as the locations that I end up in.

I'm also passionate about good food, nature, art, urban design and architecture so there'll be the odd smattering of posts that relate to what I get up to on my days off, whether on my own or with my family, Mr Jones and Lillie-Mae, and Daisy pup.

I hope you enjoy it,

naomi x
