Colourful Cottage

Love this cute, colourful cottage. This London home is owned by Gigi the editor of gransnet.com and is full of second hand treasures and pretty pastel hues.

I love the light and airy space and colourful artwork, painted furniture and rugs. She has filled the house with upcycled secondhand furniture from car boot sales, Gumtree and Ebay

My mum had a stall on Portobello Road market when I was young, so I grew up around vintage things. I would rather spend time hunting down something I love, then doing it up, than walk straight into an expensive shop with a fat wallet. If I had tried to buy everything new, I wouldn’t have been able to complete even one room.

So lovely…

She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!
