Inspired by a recent post from Stella over at Confessions of a Female Drag Queen I thought I would share with you guys a glimpse inside my home! I share a flat with four others in Shoreditch, East London just at the end of the wonderful Columbia Road. Our kitchen and bathroom aren't too exciting so I shalt bore you with snaps of our tumble dryer. Instead here's a peak into my room, stuffed full with all the clutter I'm sure you imagined it to have.
I am lucky to have such a large room in London, especially one with two
huge sash windows. Over them I hang some of my favourite sheer clothing
and Victorian bodices. On the right of my dressing table is my 1967 Hacker
record player and the sewing area. To the left is the sofa and coffee table.
This is where Aimee and I lye and watch Peep Show! The bed linen is
Cath Kidston, Crochet throw, pillows and pink 30s piano shawl from
Lewes antique stores. The little glass covered 30s side table belonged to
my Nana, she bought it back to the UK from when she lived in Singapore
in the 60s.
This little office area is where I study and blog. I found the wooden desk
in courtyard behind my building and made Aimee help me carry it up the
three flights of stairs to my apartment. Sorry about the little pile of shoes on
my sofa, didn't realise they were there!
Another shot of my desk. I'm terribly embarrassed about how grimy my
lap top screen looks, its really not that dirty, its the lighting a swear!
Here's my little sitting room area. I have a wonderful large brown leather arm
chair which usually sits next to the sofa but my clothing rail has recently
collapsed so I need it to hold it up against the wall! Above the sofa is another
of my 20s flapper dresses, this ones is sadly a bit to delicate for day to day wear.
I hope you all enjoyed seeing inside my room, Aimee and I bought some really
exciting bargains this weekend so stay tuned for some outfit posts, Edwardian
skirts, 30's slips and celluloid sun glasses await !
Love Harriett xx
