Elizabeth Danon
Shopping

 

Elizabeth Danon has a natural creative flare and has joined Pippa Jameson Interiors as our Shopping Contributor.  Liz will have her finger on the pulse reporting on all that is new and exciting in homewares as well as working on style shopping pages.

After completing a degree in interior architecture at Brighton University I worked in London as a marketing and events coordinator. My passion for design persisted as I began some freelance interior design for a couple of clients where I managed the design from conception on some very creative projects,including a re-design for a hotel bar and reception area on Brighton seafront and a design for a lingerie boutique off Bond Street in London.  I love the freedom of design and styling, ranging from temporary structures at music festivals to sleek home interiors.  My passion for interior styling and functional space means that I am constantly on the look out for new interior accessories, gadgets, colour concepts and innovative design ideas.

Sophia Bell
Eco

‘Currently studying Interior Design with KLC, I’ve worked assisting both stylists and interior designers, and recently completed a course in Interior Styling at St Martins College of Art and Design.

 

I studied Graphic Design and Advertising at Leeds College of Art and Design, before working as a copywriter and art director, followed by several years working in communications and marketing in London. After working in an industry largely concerned with influencing the consumer through words, I became interested in how people were influenced by aesthetics and their environment. That – and having enjoyed the hands on experience of doing up a succession of houses, has led me to pursue a career in interior styling and design.’
