Experience

Her obsession with interior design began way back when she was, at the tender age of 9, glued to Changing Rooms on BBC. Fast forward 10 years and she was studying for a degree in textiles at university. After her degree, she lived and worked in the arts in Washington DC. On returning to the UK she kickstarted her career on women's and lifestyle titles such as InStyle, Red, Handbag.com, SUITCASE and LUXE City Guides. 5 years on and she was heading up the content strategy and digital presence on interiors brands Good Homes, Grand Designs and ICON. Since buying her first apartment and then a few houses with her young family, her passion for interior design and gardening has taken on a new lease of life. She really loves making wherever she lives a little haven and working to make it stylish and comfortable.


Jenny's home style is... 

Jenny relishes finding unique pieces and collecting wall art. She loves finding bits that remind her of home (Ireland), places she's visited, and things that inspire her or make her feel happy, interspersing them with photos of her favorite humans and postcards from here, there and everywhere. She's not interested in her home being really trendy but wants to be surrounded by gorgeous things that remind her of points in time or a great memory or somewhere she wants to go. It's more connection for her than looking of-the-moment.

She's pining for Crittall style windows and doors either inside or to open up into the garden. 


Jenny's really into exploring new countries whenever she can and collecting and salvaging unique items much to her husband's despair. She also love crafting – although she hardly gets the chance with a happy-go-lucky toddler in tow.
