House and Home has some exciting news - we have a new editorial director at the helm. We are thrilled to welcome Ciara Elliott to the team!
Former editor of leading UK title, Essential Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom magazine, and freelance journalist and stylist for the likes of Good Homes, House Beautiful, Real Homes, Grand Designs, and Homestyle, she is no stranger to interiors.
During her tenure at EKBB, the magazine blog won the UK's Best Interior Magazine Blog' in the prestigious Amara Awards, and she launched the first ever Kitchen and Bathroom Influencer Awards.
She previously edited our sister title, Confetti magazine, as well as Irish Tatler magazine; roles she juggled with her tenure as fashion editor at the Sunday Tribune, when she last lived in Ireland.
The Instagrammers among you may recognise Ciara from her chronicles of the revamp of her 1800s crumbling country house on her Instagram, @ciaraelliott.
“We are so excited to welcome Ciara back to the 256 fold, and to have her lead the editorial direction of House and Home, building upon our 24-year-old brand. Her insider knowledge of the interiors market and strong editorial experience make Ciara the perfect fit as our new brand ambassador," says publisher and CEO of 256, Karen Hesse.
Ciara is no stranger to House and Home - most recently she was one of our esteemed judges at the inaugural Interior Influence Awards 2019, and we have previously featured a real home tour of her beautiful renovated farmhouse in the UK.
You can pick up Ciara's first issue, the May/June issue, from April 10th, available at Eason's, Tesco and all good newsagents.
