About Harriet & Rose

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)
