My home in The Simple Things

The Simple Things is such a lovely, calming magazine and I feel very honoured that they have featured my flat in the July issue. The story by Rachel Leedham is over 8 pages with lots of pictures by photographer Alun Callender. I bought the flat back in 2011 when it was extremely unsightly and rather depressing in looks, safety and smell! It took about 4 years but now it feels like home. Here is a sneaky peek of some of the feature, to see the whole thing, check out the July issue out now.

The kitchen was originally 2 rooms and a corridor, but you can read about that in the magazine. The dining table belongs to a friend who couldn't fit it in her new home and the chairs are a mix of ones that belonged to my grandma that I have painted and Tolix. The lights are from a ship.
