This East London basement has been decorated with quirky finds, friend’s art, and wallpaper that makes the owners laugh. Owned by Emily Rees, with husband Gareth and their new baby, this flat is full of creativity and flair, with something made out of every space – whether it’s the 50s diner-style booth in the kitchen or the baroque-meets-retro hallway.
Emily kept what features the flat had, including a 50s fireplace her friends declared ‘hideous’, and went for vintage furniture and bold 70s wallpaper. Mirrored wardrobes they couldn’t afford to remove formed the idea for a Biba glamour-style bedroom. The only room free of colour and pattern is the office where Gareth works as a copywriter. ‘It’s really nice coming in here and having a break,’ he says.
