Orig­i­nally hail­ing from Lon­don, Ruth has called Aus­tralia home for 10 years. “My hus­band was of­fered a job here and we thought it sounded like a great ad­ven­ture,” she says. “We liked it so much we stayed!” A keen in­ter­est in homes, in­te­ri­ors and mag­a­zines led Ruth to a career in styling — a tal­ent she’s show­cased work­ing in-house and free­lance for a va­ri­ety of ti­tles in­clud­ing the UK Elle Dec­o­ra­tion. Her dec­o­rat­ing shoot for this is­sue evoked mem­o­ries of old. “I’ve al­ways been a fan of cosy bed­rooms — maybe be­cause as the youngest child in my fam­ily I al­ways got the small­est room!” she says. “They co­coon and nur­ture you, which we all need in this fast-paced busy world.”
