Sophie Baylis: “I have been an interiors journalist for over 14 years. During that time I was the Deputy Editor of Kitchens Bedrooms & Bathrooms magazine and built my freelance portfolio working for titles such as Livingetc, Elle Decoration, Essential Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom and Identity (Dubai). I have also been a regular contributor to online platforms Houzz and Property Price Advice. To broaden my knowledge and expand my contacts, I regularly attend industry exhibitions including Salone del Mobile, ISH, Imm Cologne, Maison et Objet, Cersaie, IFA, London Design Festival and KBB Birmingham.
“For the last three years I have been the PR representative for the bespoke furniture maker Cue & Co of London. My remit is to secure coverage in key consumer interiors titles and handle the company’s social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Houzz). Since January 2018 I have been the UK PR representative for BSH Group (NEFF, Bosch and Siemens) and since March 2018, the representative for Scavolini kitchens and bathrooms.”
Ruth Bell: “I am the former editor of Kitchens Bedrooms & Bathrooms magazine, a position I held for six years. My career as an interiors journalist began in 2005 and since then I have built-up a strong reputation and an extensive profile within the industry. To promote the Kitchens Bedrooms & Bathrooms brand, I have spoken at conferences, chaired round-table discussions, judged industry design awards and attended networking events. My efforts have been rewarded with numerous awards for the magazine. I regularly attend industry exhibitions both in the UK and Europe including Salone del Mobile, ISH, Imm Cologne, Maison et Objet, IFA, London Design Festival and KBB Birmingham.
