The tricky about me page…. (the opening of which is always the hardest part and generally pivots around whether to refer to myself in the first or third person… always a quandary).
Having relocated from the suburbs of South East London/Kent (it’s controversial) to Jersey in the Channel Islands in the summer of 2016, I sold my beloved bridal jewellery business, and set about pondering what to do next.
The Harriet & Rose blog which was previously pretty much used as a platform for opinionated rants (as well as my portfolio of copywriting and published articles), has changed as a result. I still blog when I have something to say, so you can be assured that there will still be responsive, opinionated, pieces written in incandescent haste (I write quickest when riled). I will still be adding to my portfolio as well, but, in large, the Harriet & Rose site is on its way to becoming a platform to write about interiors, as well as show real life projects that I have, and am working on.
I’ve always been fascinated by interior design, perhaps it’s a knee jerk reaction to being brought up in a house that was covered in woodchip (to be fair, it does cover a multitude of sins… though possibly creates too many of its own for this to cancel out its pros). In 2016 I took this love and completed a Diploma in Interior Design with the Interior Design Institute. Not having done any assignments for quite some years, this was something that seemed a good idea after
half a bottle of wine, but in the cold light of day, twelve assignments loomed large, all of which required quite a lot more work that I had thought it would.
And I loved it. So in 2016, Harriet & Rose Interiors and Ceramics began.
So yes, Harriet & Rose: Interiors ~ Ceramics ~ (Occasional) Opinionated rants
(I quite like that as a tagline actually)
