Journalism

Helen has published work in most UK national newspapers including the Financial Times, The Times, The Sunday Times, the Telegraph, the Guardian, the Observer, the Daily Mail, the Mail on Sunday and the Sunday Express. Her writing has also appeared in leading lifestyle titles such as Homes & Gardens, Country Homes & Interiors, Good Housekeeping, Woman, Period Living, Ideal Home, BBC Homes & Antiques and Grazia; weekend supplements, such as the Sunday Times ‘Style’ and the Telegraph Magazine; and international publications, such as the Wall Street Journal Magazine.

Today, she specialises at the luxury end of the market, with her work appearing regularly in the FT’s ‘How to Spend It’ magazine. She is also editor-at-large for the American site www.1stdibs.com, a portal to thousands of art and antiques dealers around the world, where she contributes regular profiles on designers and decorators based in the UK and Europe.

“Helen Chislett is our go-to writer for design stories in the UK, and beyond, contributing features on an almost-weekly basis. She’s a wonderful scout, reporter and storyteller — a rare triumvirate of talents in the world of journalism.”
