Hello! I'm delighted to welcome you to Livingetc, a site full of inspirational design ideas, style-forward homes and news about the latest launches in interiors, travel and lifestyle.

Livingetc is for anyone who wants ideas for decorating their own home, who doesn’t have time to sift through every cushion or curtain and comes to us to make an edit for them. We know how important having a nice home life, and being in a space you love can improve your mental health no end. So we are bringing you ideas big and small, for improvements that can make a big difference, all of which will hopefully have you thinking about your home in a different way. 

We cover style updates, tours of beautiful houses and news on the latest launches, as well as inspiration for chic getaways, hosting ideas and product reviews. 

We place a particular emphasis on both design classics and quick new season buys, affordable updates that we think might become the classics of the future.  

Livingetc is brought to you by Future Publishing, which also publishes Homes & Gardens, Ideal Home, Real Homes, 25 Beautiful Homes and many other popular titles.


Of course, we've assembled a crack team of experts in their fields to deliver all this stunning inspiration to you, and we'd love to introduce them...

I'm Pip McCormac and I've previously been a magazine and newspaper journalist for over 16 years, working on titles like Sunday Times Style, Red, ELLE Decoration and Grazia. I also host Livingetc’s podcast series Home Truths, where I’ve been talking to some big names in design about how they got to where they are today. They share some fascinating stories - you can find it on any podcast app. I'll be overseeing the site as brand editor along with my team of writers and editors - I also look after the print edition, which is well worth subscribing to for a monthly dose of seriously brilliant style delivered to your door.

I'm Hebe Hatton the Digital Editor, and I oversee the day-to-day content on the Livingetc.com website and always on the hunt for gorgeous houses to feature on our Modern Homes section.  I've always loved interiors, and when I am not writing and researching interiors for the site I am doing up my own flat – a modest affair that once I have got round decorating the three rooms I just start again, it's a constant work in progress...

I'm Jenny McFarlane and I'm Senior Digital Editor working across Livingetc, Homes and Gardens, Ideal Home, Gardeningetc and Real Homes. I also work on the brands' homes video show, on the Future Homes Network, which is packed full of ideas to help you make the most of your home and garden.

After studying for a textiles degree at university, I lived and worked in the arts in Washington DC. On returning to the UK I kickstarted my career on women's and lifestyle titles such as InStyle, Red, Handbag.com, SUITCASE and LUXE City Guides. Fast forward 5 years on and I was heading up the content strategy and digital presence on interiors brands Good Homes, Grand Designs and ICON.

When it comes to my home's style, I relish finding unique pieces and collecting wall art. I love finding bits that remind me of home (Ireland), places I've visited and things that inspire me or make me feel happy, interspersing them with photos of my favourite humans and postcards from here, there and everywhere.

Our reviews are independent and free from commercial considerations. We never take payment for reviews. We always return products on request or at the end of our agreed loan period. 

Separate to our editorial content and process, we publish advertorial feature content which is clearly marked and tagged as 'sponsored'. We also run 'in association with' articles, which are independent editorial articles, created by writers employed by Livingetc that have been funded through the support of a commercial partner. 

We often include shopping links in articles to enable readers to buy the products we write about – these prices are automatically populated from a selection of retailers. Our parent company, Future Publishing, gets paid a small percentage of the purchase price if you click through and buy a product as a result of using one of these links. That fee, known as an affiliate fee, is not added to your purchase price so the price you pay is the same whether you click to visit the retailer from Livingetc.com or you go to the retailer's site direct. These fees help us to fund the content that you read on Livingetc.com
