And, rather than filling a large blank wall in his living room with statement art, Tom Chalet, the owner of this eccentrically decorated one-bedroom east London flat, created a Barbie doll collage. Because, why not? Other decorative accessories include the giant teacup in the foreground, lots of Lego, a smattering of taxidermy and the odd train station sign. Being a collector is something that many eccentric homeowners have in common. “To me,” Chalet says, “decoration needs to be personal. I have memories attached to all of the ornaments you see here.”See the rest of this flat

A few frivolous splurge items are thrown in, such as the giant Plant Cup, which cost around $330, and wherever you look there are plenty of things to catch the eye. In fact, whenever friends come into Chalet’s flat, they always seem to notice something new, even though it’s all the same and nothing has changed. “They’re like, ‘Did you always have this?’” he says, laughing.The Barbie dolls are eccentricities that somehow work in the context of this space. Chalet bought them on eBay and had boxes of them stacked up at his workplace for months. The taxidermy fox was also bought on eBay, a vintage find from the science department of a school in Yorkshire that was closing down.

I like the bizzare choices in decor: the giant tea cup, the taxidermy
