Sourcebook: My Living Room

lifebylotte-living-room

OK, so apologies, I agree, ‘Sourcebook’ is supremely wanky. Who do I think I am? An interior designer? Fear not, no, I know my place – I just couldn’t think of anything else to call this post.

Since my flat was featured on the very lovely Houzz UK a few months ago, and since I will very soon (hopefully) be moving out of it (if we can ever find anywhere to live), I thought I’d put some details down on the blog of where everything in each room is from. Lots of people keep getting in touch and asking me for details about things, and it’s really LOVELY because it means I must have SOME taste (despite someone on Houzz commenting that my flat was ‘a hybrid of girlie, retro, seaside, student, office, modern, with a twist of chic that I’m finding difficult to love’ – I mean personally, I think that sounds kind of awesome, but hey, I guess I would).

First up, because it’s the one with the most stuff in it: my living room. So here’s a grand old list of where everything is from, in case you’re interested. And, yes, I know, this blog post requires no creativity on my part. Ha.

Some things may no longer be available as they’ve been accumulated over several years – if so drop me a line and I’ll try to find an alternative for you.

Hopefully I haven’t missed anything – feel free to leave a comment if so and I shall get back to you forthwith!
