If your willing to spend your time in one of these fantastic places, this is how to design it. It fully functional, but most importantly incredibly decorative. Take a sneaky peak:
This is the sitting room and kitchen area. The oven yes is old, but it adds charm. This is an all girls warehouse (no boys allowed!) in Seven Sisters. The girls have collected items across the globe. Many items have also been left and put together artistically. This is very cushy, with a multi-cultural theme. This warehouse is full of life and colour. Over the dining table stands a tall red lantern, Chinese in style with gold tassels. I love the way that all their chairs are different and each one tells its own story. The kitchen area has a wooden structure to hang dream catchers, pans, flowers, tea pots etc. to add a new dimension. In this seating zone, a pillowed hammock is central, with two large sofas either side. Hammocks are the best way to make your sitting room something extra special. Make sure you have somewhere to hang it though…
This display is in the hallway. Peacock feathers are beautifully put together to involve nature within a busy London environment. The twisted candle stick, the bunches of flowers and the religious artefacts only adds confusion to this crazy place.
In the bedroom above the bed lies a handmade dream catcher that allows one a perfect nights sleep. This is attached to some horns. This is simple, yet incredibly effective. In the same bedroom on the window sill, dripped wax is shown creatively. The colours and textures look fab.
In the hallway leading to the other bedrooms lies a gramophone with a collection of found images and pictures. A Tibetan prayer wheel is one of my favourite things, so when my house is completed, I will show you mine. Their prayer wheel is in the box to the bottom of the picture. You touch it and spin whilst making a wish. It is said to bring you luck, and to make your dreams come true.
These steps lead to another bedroom.
The idea of this warehouse is that there is no doors, just fabrics, to allow a communal way of living. There is one bathroom, with 8 girls. They share clothes, and live in harmony. Every inch is decorated and thought of. They also have a house pet called bunny, he loves to roam around and he is loved by 8 wonderful women. A house or environment can never be too cluttered, so be as creative and free as you possibly can.
