EW: What are some of your favorite places to shop for home décor?
TS: I absolutely love ZGallerie. They have so many stylish pieces for a really good price. I also buy a lot of second hand and antique pieces which I love to enhance or alter to suit our home.
EW: I understand that your bathroom renovation was completed on a tight budget. How did you stretch your funds to create this showstopper?
TS: Instead of replacing the tiles, we painted them. We also added glitzy details like the Swarovski crystals on the towel bars and upholstery nails on a base cabinet from Ikea.
Swavorski crystals turn an ordinary towel bar into precious metal.
EW: How long did it take to complete your renovation?
TS: The whole flat has been renovated, floors, ceilings, walls, fittings ... everything! The structural work took two months. I worked in the flat all day, and my boyfriend came after he finished work. We then finished the decoration after moving in, so it has been a work in progress and it still changes.
EW: Your kitchen went through a remarkable transformation. No one would ever believe that pine cabinets ever existed here. Bring on the shine, baby! I love the reflective quality of the backsplash, too.
TS: We initially wanted to install a large mirror, but opted for this chrome mosaic tile instead. My boyfriend loves it.
EW: What do visitors say about your home?
TS: I haven't heard any bad comments, it has all been good. I understand it may not be ideal for a family with small children, but for us it is perfect. It's fabulous if our home can inspire others.
