I’m very excited today to be able to share with you the feature on my flat on international decorating goliath Houzz. The lovely team at Houzz sent a fab interiors photographer (Chris Snook – check him out) round a few weeks ago to shoot my humble abode to feature as part of their new series visiting interiors bloggers at home. I then had a chat with one of their writers to talk more about my blog, as well as the story behind the bits and pieces in my home.
It’s funny, seeing the finished pics, as I had never realised quite how girly my taste had become! And quite how dependent on grey and pink… what can I say, the two work together so well! It’s been really lovely to have these professional shots done, especially as when my flat was last shot for The Guardian, it looked quite different.
My home really is an amalgamation of lots of different bits and pieces gathered throughout the years – many of which were handed down to me from relatives, resulting in a rather eclectic mix. But I quite like the fact that pretty much everything I own has a story behind it, rather than it all being bought at once to fit a particular design ‘scheme’.
The Houzz team also asked me to pick out a prize for the best comment left on the feature. They wanted me to choose something inspired by or featured in my flat – so I went with this fab poster from A Rum Fellow (below). It takes pride of place above my desk in the living room, and always gets tons of compliments.
So what are you waiting for? Get over there, have a good nose round and leave a comment (be kind please, have I mentioned at all lately that I’m heavily pregnant and emotional?!)!
Can’t wait to hear what you think!
