From coloured glassware to contemporary storage, anything to upgrade the bare space of her rented East London flat. 


Experience 

Louise’s knack for writing and interest in interiors grew from her love for art. After all, creative writing and interior design are an art form of their own. Visiting galleries and painting from a young age soon led to studying an undergraduate degree in Contemporary Art, where her practice considered how artwork can amplify a room or space. Still, whilst having talent for painting, writing allowed her creative flair to flourish. From reviewing and critiquing artworks, to pursuing a masters degree in International Journalism, Louise put aside the paintbrush and instead put pen to paper. She wrote arts and culture pieces for University of Leeds’ student magazine and undertook internships for fashion start-ups, ideating all digital copy. It wasn't until she landed a PR position in the homeware industry that Louise learnt everything there is to know about ecommerce. Especially, about what to look for when online shopping for your next bedding buy. Whether it be a new bed, mattress, topper or sheets, what you choose to sleep on matters. But don’t worry, your sleep set-up doesn’t have to break the bank. From thread counts and TOG ratings, to fabrics and colour choices, Louise is best at sourcing the top budget-friendly bedding. Eager to share with Real Home’s readers, she is brimming with useful sleep content, including what to look for, when, and where to buy, so you can choose the best bed products for you. 


Louise’s Home Style 

Having recently moved to London, sharing a furnished three-bed flat with friends, exploring her own home style hasn't been free flowing. Though not restricted to standard furniture and renter rules that prohibit anything on the walls, Louise has managed to add her stamp with modern decor, such as glass bedside table lamps and an acrylic desk chair. Oh, and great bedding of course! With an appreciation for modern styles, categorised by an emphasis on symmetry, Louise finds comfort in balance and clean lines - some might call it a form of Feng Shui. Though certainly not a minimalist, with overflowing art supplies and an addiction to glassware, she’s always on the lookout for sleek storage solutions that’ll keep her home well-organised. Tidy room, tidy mind, right.
