About me

Hi! My name is Heidi; I am an Interior Designer by qualification, Furnishing Fabrics Estimator for a large department store by day, writer and dreamer by night. I live in Cardiff with my Husband in a two bedroom Victorian terraced house, which we have been renovating, mostly by ourselves, since June 2015.

It has been a very stressful time of life, but now we’re done, and already planning a new life for ourselves on the other side of the world (seriously, we’re moving to Brisbane in June 2018!!), so this blog serves the purpose of becoming a permanent record of what we’ve achieved, a way to reminisce, and to warn others.

I like sausage dogs, strong coffee, holidays, and most yellow things.

For my job, I advise people on curtains, blinds and bespoke window treatments, which means I know a lot about curtains, blinds and bespoke window treatments. Luckily, I love fabrics and I love designing things that people will love to have in their homes, so most days are good ones.

When we move to Australia, I am hoping to combine my passions and find a way to make interior design, and writing about interior design, my day job. Fingers crossed!

I also absolutely love Instagram, so give me a follow if you like what you see here: @secret_yellow_home.
