Welcome to another episode of Interior Style Hunter. On the podcast today we welcome branding powerhouse, Emily Murray, founder and editor of The Pink House. Emily is mum to two bonkers little boys, wife to the long-suffering Pink House Husband, and she recently moved from Edinburgh back to London, where she lives in an Edwardian house with a pink front door. For her success, Emily has won three awards and has been featured in the top UK. With such dedication to building a brand in a very short time, I simply had to ask Emily to join me on the show to talk about it in more detail. In today’s episode, Emily shares how “pink” found her, the lightbulb moment that lead to her starting a business, and how she helps people reconnect with themselves through their home. Stay tuned for all this and more inside today’s episode!
