Hello. I’m Maxine
I’m the voice behind the award-winning interiors blog We Love Home. You’re here as you want to work with We Love Home and want to know a little more about me.
I’ve spent 20 years as an interior stylist and homes editor (House Beautiful and Home magazine), and I was contributing editor on Elle Decor. Then I have been a freelance stylist for the past 12 years styling for The White Company, Ikea, Sunday Times, Guardian Weekend Magazine, Ideal Home, Good Homes, Next, Debenhams, Country Homes & Interiors….I also host a range of bespoke styling workshops called The Secret Styling Club.
We Love Home was launched in 2015 as I wanted to share my love of interiors (that is where the name came from!) and express all the ideas in my head which is bursting with DIY, makeover and style tips.
I live in colourful Brighton with my dog Teddy.
