East London, United Kingdom
When I bought this flat it was in a terrible state — dark floors, a mess of a kitchen, and I can't even explain the bathroom. I'm half Danish, half Filipino but it's style is probably mostly Scandinavian. I bleached the floor with lye, a Danish treatment. I lived there for a year but then rented it out for two years while I was living abroad.
When I returned — new American husband in tow — I set about redecorating, using a mix of some of my pre-married furniture and some new, vintage finds. I love it. It's small but bright and airy. Only problem is having visitors from abroad — a bit of a squeeze but hey, it's London, who spends all day indoors anyway?
