ABODE was founded in 1993 by journalist Judi Goodwin whose background includes newspapers and magazines, broadcasting, advertising and PR. Since 1985 she has specialised in interiors and lifestyle journalism contributing to major titles including BBC Homes and Antiques, BBC Good Homes, Period Living, Country Homes and Interiors, House Beautiful, Country Living and Homes and Gardens. For four years she was Commissioning Editor for house features on Ideal Home.

The provision of photographic interiors material is a natural extension of this journalistic service. And because of our strong editorial background, we are able to provide extensive caption information on all our photographs, plus whole house features on a First or Second Rights basis.
