Danielle Proud is a former interior design columnist for The Sunday Times Style magazine. Her first book, House Proud, hit the shelves in November 2006. She spent years cutting her teeth as clubs editor and assistant to the TV editor at The Guardian Guide. This gave her a good grounding in identifying comfy furniture and making mean martinis. These skills, coupled with her designer's eye and marriage to fastidious hotel snob Alex Proud, make her an ideal commentator on a place's suitability for R&R, as well as easiness on the eye.
