About the house

Not much has changed around here since my last About the house, but since I keep snapping little shots to try out my new camera I thought I’d share.

Picked up this sweet little dresser from a new vintage shop in Stoke Newington. It was only £125 and fits in great. The bedroom is the last room to be ‘done’ since I’m looking out for the perfect vintage bedside table and we need some shelves building. But it’s slowly coming together now.

I got these gorgeous things from Spitalfields market. They’re original pencil drawings by lettering artists at the Linotype factory in Manchester. The drawings would form the basis for hot metal type letters to be cast and used to print books. Nice piece of history! Not sure where to hang them though – is above the bed too cheesy?

  1. Well done on the beautiful dresser! What a great find. Would the initial prints sit well in your entryway, possibly mixed in as part of a larger collection of art on one wall?

  2. Haha a bit cheesy, but who cares?! I love that you describe it as precious clutter. It seems so well-organised and displayed though, a very important factor when trying to disguise the fact that it is indeed clutter. (I try to do this but I fail…)

    1. I think it was from boygirlparty on Etsy, unfortunately they’ve stopped selling it – I can only see another shop with a very poor rip-off now :(

  3. Your home is so lovely. I was trying to explain what style I was going for in my home and I just sent her to your blog! You are such an inspiration. I love how you incorporate design into everything you do. It is a goal that I am working on myself. I look forward to seeing your progress, and thank you for sharing!

  4. Your house is lovely, looks like all the rooms work together perfectly. My flat is not even remotely in the picture sharing stage yet. I’m a slow decorator (best sung to the tune of ‘Smooth Operator’).

    1. I love them too! They’re from Garden Trading, but we had to get an electrician to adapt them to make them corded as opposed to wired-in.
