The smart cookie behind the hip gifting brand The Biscuiteers have created an inspirational west London home perfect for modern family life. Enter the world of Harriet Hastings, founder of The Biscuiteers, and her husband Stevie Congdon, founder of Lettice, a London based catering and food event company and you will find yourself immersed in a whirl of colour and creativity. It comes as no surprise that at home their space radiates the same energising verve.
The couple moved here twenty years ago with their first baby, Holly. 'We had outgrown out bijou flat and wanted to make the jump to a family home that we could grow into and develop.' says Harriet. 'We both love the varied cultural vibe of Shepherds Bush and were keen to stay in this area, but needed to find a wreck to make the move affordable.'
Their home, a Victorian gem situated in a quiet, leafy road was indeed a fortuitous find, as the couple now have four children as well as two dogs, a Stevie's suitably neon yellow budgie, Marvin. 'The space was totally uninhabitable when we moved in and with limited funds we did a lot of the work ourselves before employing a team of cheap, country builders, which literally camped out with us at night on the middle two floors; whilst stripping back decades of wallpaper, paint and grime during the day.'
