About me

I am Alison Gibb, an interiors feature writer and stylist. My husband, Douglas Gibb, is a photographer, and together, we create features for interiors magazines. We actively look for good stories for magazines. They could be anywhere – we love to travel!

If you feel your own home might be of interest, please, please send us snaps, we would love to see it. We are genuinely passionate about architecture and interior design. There is a contact button on the front page and my email is alisongibb@douglasgibb.co.uk

I also help people style their homes. I supply very reasonably priced Room Reports and I teach interior styling through regular six week courses that take you around your whole house called Creating A Perfect Home for You #CAPHFY. Please get in touch if you would like to participate.

I also write about travel. I am delighted to be officially a travel correspondent for the Sunday Post PS Magazine supplement

If you would like me to visit your hotel or holiday property and write about it, either for the Sunday Post or on here, my blog, I would be delighted to discuss.

We have recently sold our seaside home in Gullane, a stunning coastal village in Scotland.

This was our living room, above.  We aimed to have a fun, beach shack feel. Our home was lovely, but the star of the house was definitely our garden. Read a little more about it here

We are now looking forward to moving in to our next home and we will enjoy sharing our journey with you very much. Don’t forget to subscribe if you would like to receive regular updates.

    Love your blog…..the layout, content and your writing/putting-together style.

    Sorry it’s taken me an age to ‘hook up’….

    Best of luck – you deserve success


  2. Hi Alison
    Murray put me onto your blog and I think it’s just brilliant. Well done! Hugely inspiring and entertaining and I hope it goes from strength to strength. I am planning to start a blog too and may call on you for some brain pucking…..

  3. Hello Alison. I love your blog, beautiful interiors. I wonder if we have met before, many years ago? Did you work as an Art teacher in Cleveden Secondary in Glasgow, do you remember me? I was a student Art teacher while you worked there. I did a degree in jewellery at Edinburgh college of Art at the same time as your friend Anna Gordon. Were you Alison Matte back then? Let me know if you remember me.
    Your blog and images are beautiful. Nice to see you doing so well. Lorna.

  4. Hi Alison, I found your page when I was Looking for driftwood tables and mantelpieces. I absolutely love your lounge. We have the same wood burning stove but in black. We are moving to a modern house near the sea and want to put some character into it. I haven’t seen your blog but I will now. Thanks for the ideas!

  5. Just love your garden office….it’s amazing. You must have been thrilled when it was finally finished and you could ‘move in’! Your home is lovely…..why have you not featured it? If you’re back in Fife, call in xx

    1. Oh thank you Linda, our home is lovely and we have featured several rooms, but we have not quite managed to pull off the whole house yet though, we will try. Every Christmas we plan to do a Christmas shoot, but a dozen mince pies later and it is January and we never quite get there!

  6. Lovely website, look forward to reading more. And great name. Which website host do you use?? Did you do it yourself or via a web designer? Love your bright images. Well done.

    1. Thank you, the website is created on WordPress. I am very fortunate to have used the brilliant webste designer called Rosy Naylor. My husband is a professional photographer so I am glad you like his ‘bright’ images!!
