Freddie Harrel

Fashion blogger

The inimitable fashion blogger Freddie Harrel was born and bred in Paris, but now runs her business from a sunny, double-height loft space in south-east London. It’s rammed full of artefacts and furniture that she and her husband, Tom, have picked up on their travels and from around town.

MORE IS MORE

“Hell yes, I’m a Habitat voyeur,” says Freddie, who loves a big statement piece as much as the smaller details like colourful cushions and vases. “Why choose?”

A grey chaise sofa and comfy red sofa with patterned cushions.
A shelf with a few belongings sit above an antique chest of drawers.
A round wooden dining table with striped coloured runner, and chairs covered in a street map print.

SETTING THE TONE

Tom owned the wooden table and chairs before Freddie met him: “They’ve definitely set the tone for our first flat together and made us want unique and unusual things.”

ALL ABOUT US

“Our flat is the perfect mix of us…we have so much fun tweaking little details and shopping for quirky things. I love it!”
