A few weeks ago, when I shared my top ten tips for making a rented house feel like home, I promised a little look at my rented home. Well, let's begin with the living room.

White walls and stripped floors, a bay window, wood burning stove - the living room is small but just my cup of tea. In a big change from my previous home, this room now has plenty of colour. And sunlight. I can never work out which is south facing and all that stuff, but whatever it is this room is filled with magic hour warmth each evening.

I had to make a few new purchases, such as the armchair, but many of the bits and pieces in this room have been with me for years. Things like the vintage Penguin paperbacks that belonged to my Grandma, or the red metal ampersand that inspired my tattoo, will always find a home in my home.
