Founder/editor: Emily Murray
Emily’s interiors passion started with her childhood gang hut, which boasted a reclaimed fireplace, display shelves and fully-plumbed guest bathroom, but which tragically burned to the ground in a marshmallow-toasting incident. Contact Emily about anything at all on firstname.lastname@example.org
Interior likes: loads of colour, including pink; typography; stuff that makes the house feel like a circus/zoo/nightclub/spa; old things that have a story; child-unfriendly velvet furniture; London-related stuff; gold things; neon; blackboards; anything by Soho House or Kit Kemp.
Dream house: The Pink House when it’s finished, but with a bigger garden, another bedroom and an en suite bathroom, please. And an indoor swing. Oh, and relocated next door to the Chiltern Firehouse. Thanks.
Home wreckers: Two boys aged three (“no mummy I’m one HUNDRED”) and six (“actually I’m six-and-two-months”) who are lackadaisical with chocolate and glitter glue.
Creative director/Photographer: SUSIE LOWE
Susie has photographed pretty much everything fabulous, from celebrity homes and hangouts to Michelin-starred food. The Pink House is honoured to have her on board, making everything look amazing. If you have any photography requirements or questions, or any sexy interiors shots or products you'd like us to know about, please contact Susie on email@example.com
Interior likes: Rooms with views and lots of light. I love timeless pieces of furniture mixed with bits of kitsch, colour and lots of fun. Plants and flowers are also important to me, although keeping them alive is a challenge.
Dream house: A softer, less clinical version of Hyde & Hyde’s House for a Photographer would be pretty much perfect. Ideally I’d love somewhere that feels like it’s in a rural setting while still being fairly close to a city centre. Somewhere open, spacious and light with views to the sea.
Home wreckers: I’d love to blame the chaos and mess in my house on my partner and nine-year-old son, but I’m probably messiest of all. I’m working on it.

Interior likes: Chinoiserie - such as beautifully hand painted walls or a lovely Chinoiserie bamboo chair; deep feather-filled sofa cushions; ticking stripes; soft ambient lighting; colour - especially blue & pink; contrast piping on upholstery and cushions; polished nickel hardware; trays for collecting all your bits & pieces and making them look organised; beautiful bed linen; silk curtains; pretty flower arrangements
Dream house: A large townhouse with a pretty garden, fully-stocked wine cellar and mudroom with dog-wash station. I love the idea of having lots of rooms to decorate in their own individual style. Open-plan living's not for me.
Home wreckers: Two dogs who love mud and a partner who isn't especially tidy keep the house from ever being picture perfect. Having said that, I abhor houses that feel like museums or show homes, so in fact my home-wreckers are also my home-makers.

Interior likes: A homely feel with lots of colour, fresh flowers and beautiful paintings; perfect lighting (I can spend hours getting this right); drinking whisky on a fender by a fire; soft window seats for chatting on; family photographs on pianos and side tables; gorgeous fabrics and rugs; huge hallways.
Dream house: A bright, airy house in the South African sunshine. I’d have large glass doors flung wide open leading to the swimming pool, white walls hung with colourful Miro artworks, and eye-catching cabinets and sofas in mustard and turquoise.
Home wreckers: My three children, especially my toddler who pulls everything out of cupboards and drawers, leaving chaos in her wake. And the giant pram taking up half the hall - I can’t wait for that to be gone!
