Alison Davidson. Interiors Stylist & Writer, Content Creator, Copywriter, Blogger.
I always wanted to be a journalist, I used to write anything on anything, I used to fill notebooks with all sorts of things - like what we had for dinner - but I didn't study so I left school and went into the scary world of work, doing lots of jobs I sort of enjoyed - sometimes - but not really finding my tribe. Until I was working for a charity and got involved in a fashion show - light bulb moment! So at 29, and threw it all in, regular salary, company car, and went back to college to study fashion journalism, which I loved. Then luckily, straight into the wonderful world of magazines. My first job was in fashion on Living magazine, you know the one that used to be at the end of the supermarket conveyor belt with Family Circle, but I quickly moved into interiors. IT WAS GREAT. I had found my tribe.
Since then I have been freelance, writing and styling for magazines, newspapers and for various companies including some big hitters like M&S, Dulux, and Ercol. Then I was Homes and Gardens Editor for Woman and home magazine, then Interiors Commissioning Editor for House Beautiful magazine before going freelance once again. I have been all over the country writing and styling houses, interviewing interior designers and architects. Then with the increase in social media, I have embraced the new world, writing digital features for Livingetc.com; Idealhome.com and womanandhome.com. I have written press releases, newsletters, created social media posts, blogs with SEO for top end Italian furniture company, Go Modern.
I have a good reputation for getting the job done, without any fuss and on time. I can work alone but I love being a team player. I am highly motivated, adaptable and passionate about my work, and that rare thing, I can delegate successfully.
