About

Hi!  I’m Antonia Ludden**, founder/editor at #tidylife.

I was inspired to start this blog back in 2012 when I began reading a few US blogs about home organising, DIY and decorating on a budget.  At the time, I couldn’t find many equivalent UK blogs, so decided to set one up myself, with the site then being known as ‘Tidy Away Today’.

Quite a lot has happened since I started sharing junk shop furniture makeovers and home improvement ideas.  As the blog has evolved, I’ve had many exciting opportunities to collaborate with the home & interiors brands I love, including Rose & Grey, Stressless, DFS, Habitat, Homebase, Matalan  and Ikea to name a few.  Brand ambassador roles have included Karcher, Graham & Brown and Silentnight and I am pleased to have recently become a Wayfair Home Expert.

Although the site has a strong home interiors focus, I like to include occasional lifestyle features:  fashion, fitness and family.  Offering my services as a freelancer, I regularly create original blog content for brands, whether that’s researching & writing about trends or styling & shooting products – I also enjoy managing social media campaigns, blogger outreach etc.

I get a lot of inspiration for our own home projects and makeovers from the other blogs I read, home magazines and also Pinterest, where you can follow my boards.  If you want to get in touch, email me antonia@tidyawaytoday.co.uk and follow on Facebook,  Twitter and Instagram.

Thanks for visiting!

At my happiest when I have coffee, cats and chocolate within easy reach – oh, and the wifi password. 

Note for Brands/PR Agencies

My site is PR friendly and I love to work on creative collaborations, prop styling, social media projects, attend home interior events, host giveaways, feature gorgeous homeware and share new collections etc.  Feel free to email me if you’d like to see my media kit.   Sponsored and guest posts are declared as such and I only work with brands that I truly like and feel are a good fit for the #tidylife audience.
