LIFESTYLE: Look around my home

My little flat shared with my husband and two cats is my favourite place to be. It is filled with mementoes from our lives together. As we are currently looking for a new house to buy, it seemed the right time to share what my last rented flat looks like, before we take the leap to a grown up house!

I like to think of my flat as a cross between an art gallery and a natural museum. Of course we have the usual family photographs, especially from our wedding and bits and pieces from our travels.

We are both big tattoo and art fans, so are getting quite the collection including prints from:

  • Dani Green
  • Jenna Kerr
  • Ramon Maiden
  • Darryl Watson
  • Amy Victoria Savage
  • Tiny Miss Becca
  • Courtney James
  • Kerry Evans
  • Draw Me A Monkey
  • Dawnii Fantana
  • Saranna Blair

Plus originals and prints from our travels.

We also have a growing collection of taxidermy and entomology. Our aim is to buy a glass cabinet for our next home and have a curiosities cabinet. Our collection currently contains:

  • Framed butterflies and moths
  • Beetles in acrylic
  • Taxidermy Duckling
  • Framed bird wing
  • Roe Deer half skull and antlers on shield
  • Carved Ostrich egg
  • Carved Warthog tusk (picked up on my travels to South Africa)
  • Red Fox skull
  • Collection of Wallaby bones
  • Lucky Rabbit foot 

Looking at those lists, we might have a problem! And we need to move so we can fit in more.



  1. I think your space looks great and unique! Good luck on finding a new home!

    1. Thank you - we've actually just found one, and have agreed to buy it! xx

  2. That's such a gorgeous flat! I can't wait to see pictures of your new home! I love seeing places where people live!

    1. Thank you. I'm a little fed up of it now - though mostly because of the kitchen!
      I can not wait to move - definitely putting photos up of the before and after!
