Holly Reaney

Having graduated with a first class degree in English Literature four years ago, Holly started her career as a features writer and sub-editor at Period Living magazine, Homes & Gardens' sister title. Working on Period Living brought with it insight into the complexities of owning and caring for period homes, from interior decorating through to choosing the right windows and the challenges of extending. This has led to a passion for traditional interiors, particularly the country-look. Writing for the Homes & Gardens website as a content editor, alongside regular features for Period Living and Country Homes & Interiors magazines, has enabled her to broaden her writing to incorporate her interests in gardening, wildlife and nature. From peonies to pumpkins, Holly can often be found in the garden, tending to her ever-growing collection of potted plants. Alongside her horticultural interest, Holly is also a keen cook and baker with a penchant for kitchen design and enjoys researching clever and interesting ways to curate the engine room of home.  A career highlight so far was interviewing contestants and winners of the Great British Bake Off to discover what features would make up their dream kitchen designs.

As well as writing for the Homes & Gardens website and its print sister titles, Holly also sub-edits Period Living magazine. On the weekends, Holly likes to get out and about, exploring the countryside and visiting historic properties throughout the country.
