Hello there and thanks for flocking over to my blog! I’m +Stacey Sheppard a freelance writer and blogger currently living and working in Dartmouth in the beautiful rolling hills of Devon in the UK. The Design Sheppard is my online home where I blog about all things interior design-related. From furniture, lighting and flooring to kitchens, bathrooms and wallcoverings, you name it, and I’ll be bleating on about it here.

I first discovered the world of design and architecture whilst working as Staff Writer for a monthly B2B publication called Designer Kitchen & Bathroom magazine. Since that time I have become an avid follower of the design world and I have developed a real passion for residential interior design in particular. I have written for a number of design and interiors publications and websites including Designer Kitchen & Bathroom Magazine, Devon Home Magazine, World Interiors News, Heart Home MagazineFreshome.com, Achica Living and The Art of Bespoke.

I originally set up The Design Sheppard as a way to round up all the inspirational and innovative projects, products, concepts and design events that I come across whilst conducting research for the articles that I write. Before long there was a whole flock of people just like you who were stopping by to see what design inspiration I would be penning next.

As the blog grew, so did the recognition. In 2011, it came runner up in the Best Interior Design Blog category of the Prime Location Property Blog Awards. Cision named it as one of the Top 10 Interior Design Blogs in the UK in 2012, 2013 and 2014 as well as being one of the Top 10 Interior Design Blogs on Twitter. Also in 2013, I was also chosen by Decorex International as one of the Top 100 Interior Design Influencers on Twitter and Modenus identified the blog as one of the Top 100 Interior Design Blogs. Vuelio has named the blog one of the Top 10 Interior Design Blogs in the UK in 2015 and 2016 and we currently rank in the HIBS100.

I’m always looking for new and exciting content for the blog so if you see something that you think would be a good fit, please do drop me a line. I like to hear from you so don’t be sheepish!

Whilst I am open to collaborating on posts with brands it must be a good fit for the blog. I do not accept guest posts and nor do I publish infographics so please do not contact me about this. If you are a brand and would like to work with me on a sponsored post or to run a giveaway please get in touch to discuss possible collaborations and request my media kit.

Make sure you come-bye again soon!
