Take a tour around this eclectic and vibrant flat in Newcastle

This stylish two-bedroom ground-floor flat in Newcastle, which dates to around 1900 was a dream first home for the owner, Victoria, who runs restored furniture company Cherryvintage.co.uk.

‘I wasn’t even thinking about buying a home, but when my friend put her flat on the market, I didn’t want to miss out. I’d always loved the space, as it’s got high ceilings and period features, but still feels warm and cosy – and it helps that we have similar tastes in interiors, too! My style is quite eclectic with a mixture of vintage-inspired and rustic pieces, plus lots of prints, pops of colour and bird motifs.’

Before going ahead, the owner looked online to suss out the competition, but most other flats in the area were quite student-ish and needed too much work, or they were too far away from the town. Many Tyneside flats have the bathroom situated off the kitchen, but this one was next to the main bedroom, in the middle of the flat, which was a much better layout.
