Design, Mum

Hello, I’m Sharon. Mum to two daughters, Noa, born in August 2014, and Alba, born in April 2016, almost wife to David (we’ll get around to the marriage bit one day) and servant to our cat, Cornelius. Living in Surrey.

A Design Studio Manager and Graphic Designer for the last 12 years, I have worked in Marketing and Design departments for several large commercial organisations including Procter & Gamble, Conran Design Group, The Football Association and FitFlop. I am now a freelance writer, editor, brand consultant, brand rep and blogger. And all round hunter of awesomeness. But first and foremost, I am a Mum!

Moving from couple-dom to parenting has been a wonderful & emotional phase for us. David is an Interior Architect and runs his own practice so, as you can imagine, the passion for good design runs high in our household.

Although, I should tell you that we don’t live in the ‘perfect, immaculate home’ (yet!). We have a busy happy home and often have too much going on. Life just gets in the way sometimes and it can feel like we are constantly playing ‘stuff tetris’….

I’d love for you to join me as we try to reimagine and redesign our life with little people, whilst trying to maintain our own sense of style.

When I’m not lusting over homes on Grand Designs you will usually find me rummaging at a car boot sale or stuffing my face full of gorgeous food at a farmer’s market somewhere. And of course, I love a good design exhibition.

Love Sharon xx
