BRINGING THE OUTSIDE IN

"Living in Hoxton can be a bit intense, but this little garden room provides welcome relief from the very urban world outside."

ECLECTIC COLLECTIONS

"It's a pretty eclectic flat, because we're both mini-hoarders and we both like 'things'. All the pictures we've collected here and there are usually attached to quite specific memories like holidays. The most important thing for me in a home is comfort – comfy furniture and a strong colour palette. It's a comfortable refuge for us; I guess it makes me feel happy, that’s the key to everything."

FOR THE LOVE OF MUSIC

In another life, Brendan would have liked to be a "really talented musician". Although he can play the piano, his guitar and violin sit, ready and waiting.
