New editor for The English Home
Samantha Scott-Jeffries: “I am incredibly excited to be working with the talented team at The English Home.”

The English Home’s success over the past decade, both at home and abroad, says The Chelsea Magazine Company, has been due in no small measure to Kerryn Harper-Cuss, who has chosen this landmark occasion to step back from her role as Editor-in-Chief. However, she will remain associated with the magazine as a Contributing Editor.

“The English Home has been pivotal in my life for the past 12 years,” says Harper-Cuss. “I am so proud of all that we have achieved, from launching our New Year Honours Awards, to championing craftsmanship and timeless design, to working closely with respected experts and designers across the interior community. The 20th anniversary feels like an apt time for me to step back and hand on the reins. I am delighted to continue my association with the brand I love in addition to working on other projects.”

The English Home’s 20th anniversary edition will mark Kerryn’s handover to new Editor Samantha Scott-Jeffries, who has worked on the magazine for a number of years, most recently as Executive Editor, and is the author of several books including four on homes and design. She will start her new role on March 2.

“I am incredibly excited to be working with the talented team at The English Home as this respected and successful title enters its 20th year,” says Scott-Jeffries. “I feel very fortunate to have a long-standing relationship with the brand and look forward to combining my 20 years of experience working in homes and interiors with my passion to continue its legacy.”
