Q & A // Eleanor Pendleton


Eleanor Pendleton is a beauty editor, as well as founder/editor of newly launched online magazine – Gritty Pretty.
We recently spent some time asking Eleanor a few questions about her home (located in the lovely seaside suburb of Freshwater, Sydney), inspirations and of course, her favourite pieces at Liberty Trading Co.
My House Home Is...
Styled according to its surrounds. 
Located on the north cliff of Freshwater facing the ocean, our apartment feature pops of blue thanks to oil paintings by Paul Juno, white furniture to reflect natural light and fresh native flowers (like white king proteas) every Sunday.
My boyfriend surfs every day and I think this coastal influence extends right through to our home.
My One ‘Home’ Tip Is…
Buy pieces along your travels – they will serve as the best memories. I have a pair of skulls my boyfriend and I carted around Mexico for a month before bringing them home and every time I look at them, I remember that incredible holiday we shared.
If You Could Live Anywhere In The World, Where Would It Be..
I absolutely love living in Freshwater but if I had to pick elsewhere in the world, it would be Barcelona, Spain.
Like Sydney, it's a vibrant city located just a stone's throw away from the beaches.
Wherever I live, I have to be near the ocean. It keeps me grounded.
Favourite Item At Liberty Trading Co..
I get my best ideas at night and if I don’t write them down, I forget by morning.
I love to travel. This hanging map inspires me to see more of the world.
What I Love About Summer..
The smell of mangoes and the touch of ocean spray; the warmth of 4 o'clock sun and the sound of ciders piercing open; balmy evenings and late night swims; Triple J Top 100 and roars of laughter from close family and friends.
Who, Or What, Has Inspired You To Do What You Do..
I'm at a place where I feel fortunate to be inspired by those around me every day.
I'm in awe of my boyfriend and his positivity towards life which completely grounds me while my best girlfriends and family continuously inspire me to live my days constantly creating and pushing myself to the fullest.
Eleanor was also kind enough to give LTCO readers a sneak peek at her office space...
