Mad about the house is the award-winning blog of interiors writer Kate Watson Smyth, who as a journalist found that she needed an outlet to share all the wonderful interiors related items she found that the newspapers didn’t have the space for. Along with products, designers and makers that she writes about the blog also includes stories of renovating her own home which has been featured in many national publications. She shares regularly on social media and has had two books published.
Starting her blog in 2008, Pippa Jameson wanted to share her industry knowledge and her blog showcases interiors trends and how to incorporate them into your home with tips on everything from designer ideas to high street buys!
