Who are we?

Founders Nicolette Le Pelley and Cheryl Knorr are both journalists with a lifetime’s experience in interior decoration. Nicolette is a former deputy editor of The World of Interiors, and Cheryl is an interior designer. We created the online directory after running the telephone information service Design Line and compiling the famous sourcebook, The House & Garden Book of Essential Addresses. The sourcebook provided answers to the most frequently-asked decorating questions. This gave birth in 2001 to the online directory, www.houseandgardenaddresses.co.uk, run in association with House & Garden magazine. We went independent in 2008, and became The House Directory. Nicolette retired in 2018 and Angel Tan who is an architect and interior designer, is now running The House Directory with Cheryl.
