The Style Files No. 16

another home you wish was yours...
Time for your weekly dose of incredible home inspiration with our latest Style Files house tour.. This week’s homeowner Rebecca shows us her love of vintage homewares situated in a background of a contemporary well designed space …
…Rebecca’s a mum of three boys who lives in North London with her husband. You’ll be amazed to learn that Rebecca doesn’t have a background in interiors as she works in sustainability but initially training and practised as an environmental lawyer! Having said that she often sells vintage homewares with her friend Sally so she’s a keen eye for decor. They’ve currently working on putting on a vintage event in the Summer so stay tuned folks…

What was the inspiration for designing your home?

Our house is an Edwardian semi which we have slowly been renovating over the last 6 years.  Our priorities were opening up and extending the space to make it lighter, more spacious and better suited to a young family (oh and to get rid of some of the quite yuck 80s/90 features/decor.  Inspiration has been watching more episodes of Grand Designs than I care to mention, visiting vinatge stores like Baileys Home and Garden, visits to Scandinavia and all the gorgeous scandi inspiration on show.

How would you define your style?

I would describe my style as Scandi Vintage or Modern Rustic? Or a mix of the two!

  1. What would be your advice to someone who wants to create a home like yours?

    I like to use quite plain backdrops and then create interest through objects/accessories. so adding texture through cushions/rugs etc and then unusual vintage items mixed in with modern, simple pieces from the high street.  I haven’t really got lots of pattern in my house.  Is more about a simple colour palette of whites and greys then interesting items and finds!  Oh and I love a metro tile!

If you could only own one homeware item, what would it be?

Ohh so hard to choose!  A soft grey velvet wingback armchair?!  I don’t yet have one but am constantly dreaming of owning one, that or a really big soft grey velvet square ottoman/pouffe.  I went to Love Your Home at the weekend and am now lusting after one of theirs!
