Hello! Today marks EXACTLY 3 YEARS since I launched The Pink House blog/brand/business! So it feels like the perfect day to re-start this blog, and the newsletter, which has lain dormant for far longer than I intended. From now on, if you subscribe, which you can do HERE, you’ll receive a monthly ‘Editor’s Letter’ a bit like this one, with updates on what’s been going down chez Pink House (I won’t be posting them on the blog after today - this is just to give you a taster). You’ll also receive alerts when a new blog post is published, which will be much more frequently than of late - a veritable volcano of fabulous interiors inspo awaits!
The past few months much of my time has been taken up by my new book-of-the-blog, Pink House Living, which launches on Tuesday 19 March (less than 3 weeks! eek!), published by Ryland Peters & Small. If you like the sound of a beautiful, practical guide to decorating with pink and other happy-making hues, which doesn’t take itself too seriously, then click HERE to pre-order from Amazon. I’m chuffed to bits with it, and hope you love it too.
Writing a book was high on this book-obsessed pink lover’s ‘career goals bucket list’, and I feel bloody lucky to have been given the opportunity to take The Pink House into print. However, it’s also meant I’ve had much less time to devote to the blog. It’s been frustrating not being able to regularly publish loads of lovely interiors-related features to inspire/amuse/entertain you. And yes, I’m old school – I still call them features instead of blog posts; that’s what 15 years in the print magazine world does to you!
Speaking of magazines, that’s how I always envisaged The Pink House ‘blog’ – as a fun, fabulous interiors mag, mainly published online. Since it launched, I’ve been the editor, writer, researcher, picture editor, sub editor, advertising manager, editorial assistant and publisher (who says bloggers don’t earn their crust). But the time has come to grow The Pink House team; with many new projects on the horizon I simply can’t keep doing everything myself. So I scoured the UK and I’ve found. I’m delighted to introduce new team members Jenny, Jayne and Rachel – three fantastic content creators who just ‘get’ what The Pink House is all about. Click HERE to find out a bit more about them.
Now I have an amazing team The Pink House features/blog posts will be much more frequent. Every Tuesday and Sunday a fresh post will be published on pinkhouse.co.uk, and, as I mentioned above, on the first Friday of every month I’ll send out an Editor’s Letter a bit like this one, with Pink House news and updates. I’ll continue to post regularly on Instagram @pinkhouseliving and you’ll also start to see more interior inspo on The Pink House’s Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest channels. Here’s to The Pink House 3.0 – I’m so glad you’re along for the ride!
