Elfreda Pownall

Based in south London, Elfreda writes about houses 'full of ideas and beautiful objects' and does styling for food features. She knew she wanted to be a journalist when she was 13: 'I covered my entire bedroom, wall to wall, with pictures cut from my mother's glossy magazines.' 'I started as a dogsbody at The World of Interiors, unable even to send a fax, and learned on the job.'
