Hello, it’s Grace! A London-born lover of the sea and exercise-enthusiast, based in Essex.
My blog finally came to life in 2017 and since then, I’ve been bringing you
styling tips and design inspiration, travel guides and wellness wisdom.
By day, I manage creative design for leading interiors retailer, Amara.
You might have spotted me from the Interior Blog Awards where I also work my creative magic!
When I’m not designing or blogging, you can find me down the farm or at the beach,
most likely on the hunt for a perfect blue sea!
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know they’re my weakness…
