Hello I’m Sharon, this is my space to write about the things I love - interiors, design & nature.
Through my award winning design service I help homeowners uncover the story of their home, to connect their interiors
to nature, creating calm and relaxed spaces that make home a haven. I am completely obsessed with the colour green in my own home but you don’t have to be in order to create a biophilic interior. Nature comes in all colours.
I live in a Victorian Rectory in the Lake District National Park, surrounded by nature. Outdoors I feel most connected to nature in woodlands and green landscapes with views across water and mountains. This is where I feel calm, centred and at my most creative.
My home now reflects my deep connection to these natural spaces, designed specifically to nurture my mental +physical wellbeing
How I got here
Work life had been hectic for too many years leaving no time for self-care to the detriment of my health. This led me to really focus on my healing and mental well-being. I have made big changes to my lifestyle and my home to reflect my path to wellness over the last decade. I moved to the Lake District in 2020 to reset my life and build a new future. I am creating a biophilic home that truly nurtures and supports my health and at the same time sparks inspiration for my work.
I design homes and spaces that reflect a love of nature, using the principles of biophilic design that contribute to physical healing
and mental wellbeing. My mission is to see people taste the powerful benefits that connecting design to nature brings.
Embracing the principles of Biophilic Design can create a home sanctuary that cocoons, calms and supports us.
I have an Interior design diploma from the National Design Academy (Graduated 2009)
My home projects have been featured on Apartment Therapy , Real Homes magazine and Maisons et art de vivre Campagne magazine, my previous home was featured in Style at Home magazine ( see PRESS for more details) . Across the last five years I have been a nominee in the UK Interiors Awards and a finalist in the Northern Design Awards, Country Homes & Interiors Business Awards, Rural Business Awards and the Forward Ladies "Women in Business" awards, for which I was highly commended.
A Story of Home was named Best Interior Design Company in Cumbria 2022 in the Northern Enterprise Awards
