Hello! I’m Maxine

Welcome To We Love Home

Hey there. So lovely to meet you. Thank you for popping by my blog. I have so much to share with you.

Firstly, let me introduce myself. I’m Maxine – and I’m an Interior Stylist & Journalist from Brighton.  I live in a peppermint Victorian terrace house with my dog, Teddy.

When renovating my tiny home, I couldn’t find anything that reflected my own sense of style. This gave me the idea to start a blog filled with the things that inspire me. My blog has grown over the past four years, and I still love to chat about home decor but I also love to share travel, fashion, fitness and wellness.

    Hi Maxine,
    Best of luck with your project and thanks for including us in your post on brilliant whites, we are noticing a swing back to paler shades from stronger colours of recent seasons.

    We will be watching your progress with keen interest!

    I love your new home and the style of it. You have done so much already, in such a small space of time.

    I am having my kitchen redesigned, it is completely new…but still not finished. Do you have any advice on how to keep things moving when builders are so slow?

      Hey Teresa, Thank you so much for your kind words. I’m in the middle of having my kitchen redesigned so I fee you pain when builders slow things down. I’m going to do a blog post in reply as I think it is something lots of us would want to know. Maxine x

    Hi Maxine.

    I found your website when looking for Home Style bloggers and loved it. I wondered if you’d be interested in writing about some products that our client Alfresia sells.

    If you would be interested, please drop me an email and we can chat more. I’m keen to talk to you.

    I hope you are well.

    I am contacting from MatalanDirect,com, the home furnishings and improvements brand.

    I wanted to enquire as to whether you take bespoke written content on your website, and if so, how we would go about this? We have a team of experienced content writers who specialise in interior trend led content. Please see here for examples of their work.

    I look forward to hearing back from you.

    Many thanks,
