Inspiration: Living on the River Thames

Inspiration: Living on the River Thames

Small Spaces month is officially upon us and while we aren't quite sure exactly how small this space is, it definitely is cool. Belonging to English author Josie Curran, this home incorporates layers of texture (she has an amazing rug collection) and appropriate pops of pink. And when we say "living on the river Thames"...

...we mean it! Josie's home is actually a houseboat. And while it can't be driven around, it does have a hull and is anchored in place around an island with a community of about 40 other houseboats. The home was a happy compromise when Josie and her boyfriend decided they wanted to "escape the rat race" but couldn't quite swallow moving to the burbs.

To read more about Josie's home, see more images and learn about where she bought some of the pieces in her home, visit Times Online: Living on a Houseboat.
