The lovely Erin from Apartment 34 tagged me today to take part in a fun little project. The idea is to pick one room which sums up your style the most. Well, I couldn't pick just one (mainly because the photos I wanted weren't big enough) but I absolutely adore Jamie Theakston's house which is featured in this month's Living Etc. Even though I have never listened to his radio show, I'm going to make a bold statement and say that I think he is in the wrong career. He should set himself up as an interior designer, right this minute.
I love midcentury modern furniture, and the warm mid-brown colours of the wood - and how it perfectly complements shades of sludge green. In the rooms above, I particularly love the light fittings, the collection of eBay pictures, and his kitsch wall of royal memorabilia plates. His whole house is right up my street.
Except that my flat doesn't look anything like this, and considering it's newly renovated, it is actually pretty close to my ideal. It is difficult to decide on a signature style, but I'm happy with my own grey walls, dark floors, an aspiration to find a similar sofa to this, and the dream of owning some more Charlie Mackesy artwork someday.
