My home...

Style at Home (UK) - - Love It | Victorian Flat -

About Me i’m Jenny Hobbs, 26, and i’m an as­sis­tant man­ager for a cath Kidston store. i live on my own with my cat Maisy.

My home a two-bed­room ground­floor flat in Heaton, new­cas­tle, which dates back to around 1900. i’ve lived here since Septem­ber 2014.

When I bought It the flat be­longed to my friend be­fore me and, as i’d al­ways loved her style, i didn’t feel the need to change much. the only down­side was that the kitchen felt a bit dark and didn’t have enough stor­age space.

And now i’ve made the place my own with a new grey kitchen, a wood­burner in the liv­ing room, plus a na­ture-in­spired state­ment wall­pa­per in the mas­ter bed­room. i’ve also added my own fin­ish­ing touches with colour­ful ac­ces­sories and painted vin­tage fur­ni­ture.

Style tip look in char­ity shops, vin­tage stores, car-boot sales and other places you wouldn’t nor­mally shop. You just need to imag­ine how some­thing could look in a dif­fer­ent con­text, and some­times all a piece needs is a lick of paint to turn it into some­thing you will love.
