Matt Gibberd, Co-Founder of The Modern House & Inigo

Matt has an MA in History & Art History from the University of Edinburgh. He was a writer and editor at The World of Interiors magazine for five years, before co-founding The Modern House in 2005. Having handed over the daily running of the business, he spends much of his time proselytizing about the importance of good design within the home, writing books, commenting in the press and interviewing guests on The Modern House podcast.


Matt has written columns for The Telegraph, House & Garden and Elle Decoration, been a juror for the Dezeen Awards, and a hotel reviewer for Mr & Mrs Smith. He is currently renovating his countryside home, which he shares with his wife Faye Toogood and their three children. His previous London home has been published in Vogue and the New York Times. Matt’s latest book, A Modern Way to Live, was published by Penguin in autumn 2021, and deals with the five design principles we think make a beautiful home: space, light, nature, materials and decoration.
