Facebook followers will know that I am featured in the magazine this week, EPSC the Edinburgh Solicitors Property Centre.
They very kindly describe me as an ‘Interiors Expert’ which was a wonderful boost I have to say.
They ask why I blog and I explained that ‘it serves as a useful portfolio for Douglas, that can be constantly updated’. He did snigger slightly when I added ‘in today’s evermore ‘cut-throat’ working environment’ – not that I am melodramatic or anything – you know – death to all rivals! And, that ‘I find it a very satisfying way of preserving, both, work and family memories’ (a slightly more fragrant reason for blogging!)
They asked my advice for readers wanting to improve their homes interior: I am a great believer in not being a ‘Jack of all styles’, so I said ‘decide on a style and stick to it – commitment is everything!’
I also advised not to be a slave to your homes architecture…antiques and vintage pieces can add exciting accents to a modern home and, equally, a period property can be minimilist – it is your house – make it what you want it to be.
They actually created an Audio Podcast about me.
Errr…if anyone actually bothers to listen to this – send me an email, I will test you on it and anyone who gets all the answers right will get a free scented candle in the post!
