Emma Jane Palin | London lifestyle blogger covering interiors, design and travel.

Multi-award-winning blogger championing colour, creativity and culture.

I’m a multi-award-winning blogger and freelance writer creating content around creativity, design, interiors and culture with a colourful twist.

Based in Margate with the boy (JJP) and pooch George (GJP), I live in a rented maisonette apartment, aptly titled ‘The Margate Maisonette’. The home often features on the blog under related interior blog posts. A mix of bohemian influences tied with a love of colour, make the home bold and different, with ‘organised clutter’ providing mementoes of travel and moments in time. This combination of colour, shapes and texture create the EJP genre ‘Geometric Boho’.

Living in a rented abode has ignited a passion for injecting my personal style onto my home. There’s no room for magnolia walls here. Or brown carpets come to think of it. I hope the blog helps those who are unsure of how to decorate in a rental property. You’re welcome.

Bold colours, detailed patterns and complex narratives make up the rest of the EJP style and this alternative approach saw me collect both ‘Best Colour Inspiration’ and ‘Best Designed Blog’ at the Amara Interior Awards 2017, as well as becoming Feathr’s Top Trending blog of 2017. Championing creativity is a priority and that is exactly what you should expect to find on these pages. Illustrators, designers, fashionistas and other blogger inspirations all feature.

I’ve been featured in Time Out (here and here), Metro (here) and also create and contribute occassional features for Hunker, Virgin, Soho Home, Amara and Modern Rugs. In fact, I bloody love writing for others so hit me up if you’re after a guest post.

I’m always looking to collaborate or bring in fresh ideas so let’s have a chat.  Drop me an email here : emma[at]emmajanepalin[dot]com
