I never get round to sharing my magazine features on here – mostly because I am too busy writing them to be honest (!) – but I am going to make more of an effort to upload a few recent bits of work now and again as well as the usual random musings and photos of flowers (!) …so, here’s the new June 2016 issue (just out today) of Homes & Antiques magazine, in which I explore the fascinating world of antique maps…

antique maps ellie tennant homes & antiques…did you know that California was accidentally mapped as an island for over a hundred years? Neither did I! It was a really interesting feature to work on – the history of cartography is a realm filled with sea monsters, politics and personalities.

Screen Shot 2016-05-06 at 17.43.00In other news, I was chuffed to be featured on the lovely Cotswold Company and Graham and Green blogs recently, and am looking forward to judging the upcoming Hilden Style Awards 2016 (as I will get to check out some seriously chic hotels!) as well as the Junior Design Awards 2016, where I’ll be hunting for timelessly-stylish designs.
