Drinking in the stunning landscape that surrounds this one-bedroom converted barn, it’s easy to be swept away by the romantic isolation, with the sounds of the ducks quacking, the sheep bleating and the pigs crunching on apples the closest you’ll get to noise pollution. My visit to the Devonshire countryside to style and shoot the ideas-packed cottage with photographer Brent Darby 10 years ago definitely inspired me to spend more time exploring and appreciating our beautiful countryside…

And the imaginative interior certainly proves that small does not have to be dull, and in fact offers the opportunity to use unusual ideas and approaches to design some quirky open-plan spaces with a timeless feel… A decade on, this eclectic cottage looks anything but dated.

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
