“Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.” ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

My name’s Chloe and I grew up in Oxfordshire, among the dreaming spires – eventually marrying a teacher – something rather fitting and predicted by my mother when I was little. Coming from a background grounded in the appreciation and study of Art History and English Literature, I take genuine pleasure in storytelling, sharing and growing connections. I worked as a copywriter and content creator for a trio of home and lifestyle brand adding to my interest in enriching engagement. After six years in digital marketing, I made the decision to embark on a fulfilling vocation, commencing training as a primary school teacher at a little local school. The rest of the time, as a woman of many passions, I pursue those channels that speak to me – whether it’s the decorative arts through interiors, exploring people, places and stories or curating a collection of old books. Whatever the case, I firmly believe in doing what you love and loving what you do. Fundamentally staying true to my creative roots, I’m grateful for each opportunity that I encounter and hope that my blog (which I have been tending to since 2017) reflects these principles as I chart insightful histories (namely as history relates to women, material culture and the decorative arts), artistic profiles, observations and the philosophies that make it all worthwhile. When I’m not writing, I enjoy collecting vintage and antique pieces, reading richly-detailed tomes and exploring all that’s enriching. It’s a pleasure to have you join me.
