My name is Hannah Thinnesen Trickett. I’m the founder and editor of Hannah in the house, an interiors blog focussing on Scandinavian design, lifestyle and travel.

I completed a BA hons degree in Decorative Arts at Nottingham Trent University. The course was incredibly creative and broad, learning all aspects of design and making, eventually specialising in ceramics. I loved ceramics so much but once the course ended I wanted to explore the design world even further, the art of pottery will always hold close to my heart. Moving to London in 2004, I started my career as an interior designer, designing interiors for luxury homes and working for various companies such as Fired Earth, Cp Hart and Day True. Eventually taking the leap into freelance in 2010 which was also when I started the interiors blog and working as an interiors stylist.

The decision to start the blog came out of frustration. I had to stop work as an interior designer as a long term health condition (hydrocephalus) took control, resulting in multiple brain surgeries. So, if I couldn’t work as a designer I could at least talk about it, and this is where my blogging journey begins. Named Hannah in the house because I was stuck in the house for what felt like eternity. I’m obsessed with design plus I’m half Danish ( I’m becoming increasingly curious about my Scandinavian heritage and culture), combining these main factors have become key focus in the blog.
I’ve split this interiors blog into 4 categories;
At home – Styling corners of my home, including a few DIY projects and an appearance or two of Hansel the cat.
Exploring Scandinavia – Getting out of the house and exploring Scandinavia. Sharing travel tips, places to stay, top design destinations and stunning scenery.
Interiors – Writing about interior design, inspiration, minimalism, including new products, brands, trends and visiting design shows. This section also features interviews with design visionaries who continue to inspire me throughout their career.
Lifestyle – Musings, discovering design shops and nordic restaurants in the uk, plus places to explore for the design lovers out there.
