Name & Location: Nicola in Leeds, United Kingdom
My Favorite Room: Living Room
Specs: 215 square feet, owned
Nicola's living room if full of deep, dark colors, funky textures and the sort of textiles and fabrics you just want to snuggle up and get cozy. With a fun mix of thrifted and new purchases, the space has a ton of personality that complements the Victorian architecture of the home. All of the elements work together to make a perfectly welcoming family living room.
From Nicola: This room is my favorite room in the house. It retains many of the original victorian features including the original fireplace and cornicing. We often have the open fire on every day in the winter. It is decorated in a dark grey, Downpipe by Farrow and Ball and my favorite item in the room is my green cotton velvet sofa from MADE.com, which is large enough for all four of us to snuggle down and watch movies on a Sunday afternoon.
A lot of what I own in the room is vintage or thrifted, I like nothing better than searching for one-off items or restoring old and unloved furniture. Of course I add new items to the mix and I am a particular fan of Abigail Ahern and Rockett StGeorge in the United Kingdom.
I would say I decorate in an eclectic style, I love dark bold interiors and lots of color and I am almost certainly a maximalist. My home is my hobby, a sanity project in a very full life.
