Step inside this quirky London new build

Be amazed when you step inside this fun, stylish new-build home in east London

The owner of this cool four-bedroom townhouse in east London is an interiors blogger and lives with her husband and daughter.

When she bought the house it was brand new and very white. They missed having the period features they loved from their previous home in their new property but liked that it was a blank canvas, which they could make their own. Now it's an eclectic house with a fun, bold style – every colour of the rainbow is featured somewhere inside.

‘‘I tend to mix and match different styles or periods in my decorating choices and like to have a bit of fun,’ says the owner. ‘I buy stuff everywhere and anywhere and am a big fan of the high street; I have lots of fabulous pieces from Marks & Spencer and H&M Home that people always comment on.’

The couple’s next project is to redecorate the guest bedroom and update their daughter’s room to make it more grown up. ‘My husband and I absolutely love our house and when I’m out, I just can’t wait to come home! This place has become our nest and we love hanging out here.
