Bloggers on the Record – Organise My House

HIBS On the record

When it comes to interiors, HIBS100 bloggers know how to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. But where do they get their inspiration from? In this instalment of our monthly Bloggers on the Record interview series, Chrissy at Organise My House shares her style tips and inspiration with us.

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I live in cheshire and have had my own interior design business since 2005. From the usual home styling services I branched out to also offer home staging (for selling) and home organising services which were both popular and areas I loved as I was helping with the full lifecycle of living in a home – from moving in to living in it(functionally and aesthetically) to moving out!

As a result of helping lots of people over the years, lots of questions and advice always came up – and so I wanted to be able to share these things with a wider audience, so I started to look at blogging, with the result of setting up www.organisemyhouse.com, and then more recently www.stylemyhouse.co.uk and www.stagemyhouse.co.uk which are both in their infancy.

 What is your design inspiration?

I absolutely love neutrals, vintage, industrial and lots of textures in my home – and get lots of inspiration from Pinterest!

What¹s your favourite post?

On Organise My House, my favourite post is How to Live a Balanced Life. It takes me back to being young as this was when I came up with the concept, and it has resonated with readers as well – it’s lovely to share personal things.

What is your most popular post?

This post on how to declutter your home was the first post I had that went crazy when I posted to social media – it really seemed to speak to readers.

What is your top tip for working with brands?

I would say always try and be true to what your blog is about – work with a brand so you are both happy, that way they get a fantastic post and you get satisfaction that the post fits with your voice.

What inspires you?

I love to find creative ways to help people get organised and create a home they love, so my inspiration comes from reader and client questions and also projects I do around the house – I am always looking for better ways to do things!

What prompted  you to blog?

To share with a wide audience, as I had a lot of knowledge from my day job built up, that only myself and my clients were getting use of!

Who is your blog crush?

At the moment I am totally smitten by jonesdesigncompany.com as her aesthetic is very similar to my own tastes in design.

What are your top 3 interiors shops/designers?

Made.com, Maisons Du Monde, Halo

What is your best upcycle, hack or repurposed item?

An old picture frame found at a craft fair – I am currently making it into a chalkboard attached to a door in my house – watch this space!

What is your biggest interiors snafu or worst buy?

Painting the rooms in my first house all the colours of the rainbow! – I went a little crazy as it was the first time I could – but I soon realised that my passion was for neutrals with colour in the accessories instead!

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at bloggers@fleaenterprises.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

The Flea Network Team

Got it!
