This Melbourne-based stylist created our gorgeous decorating story on page 66.
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.”
