About Eve
Hi there! I’m Eve, and I’m a staff writer at Real Homes. I’m here to bring you on-trend news pieces, product round-ups, and styling inspiration. I live in a rented Victorian terraced house, and enjoy making it shine with pieces that are both beautiful and practical. When I’m not writing, I’m walking around local beauty spots, nestling into a book, or diving into a cheeseboard (I’m a total cheese fiend!).

My niche
Small spaces. As a renter living in a small home, I know what people need to make their little space look great on a budget. I also specialize in trending styles, deep diving into what makes them so popular. I also love fragrance and creating relaxed atmospheres with gorgeous scents.

Why listen to me?
I graduated from Nottingham Trent University with a degree in journalism, along with an NCTJ gold diploma. I have been an editor across various lifestyle magazines, and have developed a keen eye for detail and style and know what people are looking for now and what they’ll be looking for next.

About my Real Home... 

It’s very Scandi! I’m all about bringing the outside in, with soft colors such as dusky pinks and sage greens, wooden and rattan textures, plus plenty of natural prints and decorations. 

My fave home buys
My favorite buy for my home has to be my Purple Harmony pillow. Its breathable, latex design has completely changed my sleep game.

On my to-buy list 

I have a Ruggable rug in my living room, and I've completely caught a bug for them now. Next up is the Sarrah Blue Quartz Rug, which I'm eyeing up as a runner rug for my kitchen.

I am currently working on...
Finding the best ways to make your small space work for you both functionally and aesthetically. I'm also always looking for interiors news and celebrity interiors news.
