Where do you find inspiration for your home style?
I really love my home to feel comfortable and lived in, but not too much clutter. I like to mix new pieces with lots of vintage pieces to create a nice mix. It’s really down to trial and error as each space is so different. Sometimes I buy things thinking it will work perfectly, but it doesn’t suit the room so it’s all about finding what works in the space. I always think that a home/your sacred space is never fully complete and is always evolving. Time allows us to bring in new pieces while letting go of others.
What are your top 5 things that you couldn’t live without in your home?
Definitely my bathtub! Some people might say their bed, but a bath is so important to me and helps me unwind like nothing else. Number 2 would be my stunning MeliMeli sofa! It’s so chic, timeless and unbelievably comfortable. Number 3 would be some incense. Every time I need to create a calmer, more zen atmosphere at home, burning a stick of incense does the trick. Number 4 is my Smeg fridge and kettle that I literally couldn’t live without! The kettle especially as it’s an essential item to fuel my constant English breakfast tea habit. Last but not least, my beautiful wishbone dining chairs- you can’t go wrong.
Is there a piece in your home that has traveled with you from each place you have lived in?
My seashell jewellery box that I bought in Maine, USA when I was just 19. It is so sentimental for me and reminds me of a very special time in my life. It is still in such good condition (despite many moves) and ahhh it really takes me back. I keep it on my bookshelf and like to keep my Polaroids there to hold even more memories.
What does home mean to you?
Home is a space that I always feel safe in. I spend a lot of time at home due to the nature of my work. I have recently become as interested in homeware as I am with fashion and beauty because I just love being surrounded by things that I have personally picked out for the space. Home is the place I have been able to make beautiful memories in and I have grown so much in these four walls.
Any decorating you’re looking to do in your home soon? Or something new style you are looking for?
I am looking for some special plant pots. I love ceramics in general but I really feel like they come alive when plants are involved. Some of my plants have outgrown their little homes and I need to do some repotting! I might make that my weekend task….
