I'm Jenny McFarlane and I'm Senior Digital Editor working across five amazing interiors titles, including Livingetc, Homes and Gardens, Ideal Home, Gardeningetc and Real Homes. I also work on the brands' homes video show, on the Future Homes Network, which is packed full of ideas to help you make the most of your home and garden.


My love of interior design began way back when I was, at a tender age, glued to Changing Rooms on BBC. Fast forward 10 years and I was studying for a degree in textiles at university. After my degree, I lived and worked in the arts in Washington DC. On returning to the UK I kickstarted my career on women's and lifestyle titles such as InStyle, Red, Handbag.com, SUITCASE and LUXE City Guides. Fast forward 5 years on and I was heading up the content strategy and digital presence on interiors brands Good Homes, Grand Designs and ICON.


When it comes to my home's style, I relish finding unique pieces and collecting wall art. I love finding bits that remind me of home (Ireland), places I've visited and things that inspire me or make me feel happy, interspersing them with photos of my favourite humans and postcards from here, there and everywhere.


I'm not interested in my home being really trendy but I want to be surrounded by gorgeous things that remind me of points in time or a good memory or somewhere I want to go. It's more connection for me than looking of-the-moment. Saying that, I pick up a lot of amazing bits and bobs from wonderful high street stores, like Zara Home, Anthropologie, Arket, Habitat, H&M Home, Rockett St George, Trouva... the list goes on...


On a personal note, I'm still really into travelling the globe whenever I can and I have a baby daughter who keeps me on my toes on the daily.
