Location: Petersham, England
I am a Fashion Editor and live with my boyfriend and five year old twins in a little three bedroomed cottage in Petersham, Richmond, just outside London. It's small, but super-cosy and homely. We have a little front garden, and a tiny courtyard garden at the back (one of the smallest gardens I've ever seen!).
I love cushions, rugs, lamps, pictures and generally lots of 'cosy clutter'. My style is a bit mix and match I suppose. A minimalist I am most definitely not! I love my Moroccan wedding blankets on the sofas (bought in Liberty when I was pregnant with twins), my collection of art and fashion books on the shelves, my Twiggy print and my tiny courtyard garden which I have crammed with as many plants and flowers as is humanely possible!
We love to eat dinner out there in the Summer with candles and fairy lights. We live just around the corner from Petersham Nurseries (it's a hard place to describe - maybe easier to Google it?). I love living here because is is a like a tiny hamlet, but is officially still in the borough of London, and ten minutes from a tube station. It is equidistant from Heathrow and Piccadilly Circus. It's a tiny slice of the countryside, but close to London. The perfect combination.
