Hello and welcome! My name is Monika and I've been blogging about interior design, contemporary culture and travel since 2012.
My blogging adventure was triggered by the renovation of our first home, a full of character 19th century Victorian cottage in Essex. The house is truly beautiful and after over 3 years of DIY and re-decorating, we made it our perfect SecretGardenHome. Read here about our journey so far.
By day, I’m a very respectable (wink) market researcher (No, I don’t stand in the street with a clipboard) working for a big media company in London.
At night and weekend, I’m an amateur decorator, designer, stylist and gardener, learning as I go along.
We got married last year, and after a long wait, we are going to become parents for the first time.
To make life even more interesting, we decided to set up our first creative business – PickArtHome. I suppose I’ll be able to call myself a ‘mumpreneur’ (seriously, who comes with these names!).
My plan is to devote SecretGardenHome blog to three areas:
Design and interior, Travel and Lifestyle.
Hope you enjoy my blog and stay in touch.
