Malgorzata Bany and Tycjan Knut

Nestled amongst derelict buildings, garages and dilapidated artists studios, at the very end of a dead-end back street in North London, is the home of artists Malgorzata Bany and Tycjan Knut. This tranquil oasis is a first floor warehouse live/ work studio that the couple have tirelessly renovated - painting over sticky black walls, cleaning away old dust and grime, fitting a kitchen themselves and hanging floor to ceiling white linen to create a beautiful, calm, minimalist’s dream.

Forest + Found

A photographic nosey around the magical garden studio of talented artists Max Bainbridge and Abigail Booth of Forest and Found.


We had the pleasure of photographing Nell's beautifully renovated red-brick Victorian terraced house in Harringey on a sunny day earlier this year. The warm wood, lovingly restored features and beautiful collection of carefully sourced antiques really took us back in time.


Jemima Garthwaite, social media expert and founder and director of creative agency This Here, lives in a Victorian terrace in Hackney, East London. Jemima commissioned friend and architect Tom Kaneko to design an ambitious extension transforming the narrow terrace into a light and open space to enjoy cooking, relaxing and entertaining friends.


On a recent trip to Copenhagen we stumbled upon Frama, an interiors store and design studio housed in a beautiful 19th century apothecary in Nyboder, central Copenhagen. Many of the original features have been kept, including the wooden medicine cabinets and ornate ceiling. The space has been thoughtfully curated but has a rustic and effortless charm.


Artist Stuart Pearson Wright and musician Polly Wright moved from Hackney in East London to rural Suffolk with their son Wulfred. Their new country pile is part barn conversion, part national trust listed castle. The ancient ivy clad walls of the castle make for an imposing and dramatic backdrop to their artists hideaway.


Threads is a small shop with big ambitions. Sitting proudly on the ever popular Bellenden Road in Peckham, London, it sells vintage clothes, accessories, furniture and homewares; handmade local items including ceramics, bags and prints; and beautiful bouquets.


Alex Noble is a fashion designer and visual artist. His avant-garde and subversive designs have been worn by style icons including Lady Gaga, Kylie Minogue, Florence Welch and Laura Mvula. He has been commissioned by high-end brands such as Thierry Mugler and Diesel, and has collaborated with photographer Rankin and designer Jeremy Scott.


Aerende is the brainchild of former travel editor Emily Mathieson. It is an online shop selling beautiful products for the home, all of them made in the UK by people facing social challenges. We spent a day with Emily photographing her home; a Victorian terrace in St Albans that has been beautifully renovated and filled with many Aerende homewares.


Stuart Paterson is an antique dealer who scours Europe unearthing gems to bring back to the UK. His clients include discerning private buyers wishing to furnish smart houses, as well as designers and commercial clients. Stuart became an antique dealer by accident. Following a career in PR, he took a few months off to travel around France in a campervan, and ended up buying an old wine distillery and some antiques for his home.


Alexis Burke and her husband Adeel Akhtar live in a beautiful victorian conversion flat which dates back to the 1860's. It's in a little conservation area in Camberwell, a nook on the edge of Kennington and Walworth.  The pair have lovingly restored the two storey flat from a rundown and pretty squalid space into a warm and colourful home filled with natural materials, big windows and lots of light.
