Any of you familiar with our Instagram account, lifeatlivingroom, will know that our own home and studio is somewhat of a muse for the Living Room aesthetic.
When we started our business, we wanted to create design led pieces of exceptional quality, but ones which were very much intended for real homes and normal daily life. We don’t live in a perfect ‘design’ box and nor do our customers. Our home is pretty modest in size and is restrained by the same budget restrictions as most. Likewise it is filled not only with Living Room pieces (as you would expect!), but is also home to our favourite vintage finds and objects that either evoke memories or just make us happy.
We were so flattered when the freelance journalist and editor, Dom Cortlett, asked to photograph our home and discuss the renovation of our late Victorian semi. Undertaken when we moved to Hitchin from North London back when our daughter was a toddler, we think it has scrubbed up pretty well several years on… it is featured in the May ’20 edition of Real Homes magazine, shot by the very talented Kasia Fiszer.
