My sincere Thank you goes to Helen for giving me permission to post photos of her beautiful house. She was our hostess during our stay in Stoke Newington. D & I enjoyed meeting Helen as well as her companion and 7 year old son.
Helen and her lovely family rent their guest room to visitors from around the world on the website named airbnb.
A close friend of mine in France gave me the idea to try this website( I had never been here before). Finally, our friend ( and fellow wedding invitee), Anne, found this house in the area of our wedding.
Helen is by trade, a lighting and textile designer. She has a very keen interest in colours and fabrics. It really shows in her house and of course, the guest room.
Here are a few views of her guest room and the kitchen:
General view of the room.
A ” loft’s view” of the town below.
Cushions on the bed.
Helen said that the embroidered cushion was designed by a fellow classmate & friend, Rachael Howard. Helen and Rachel attended the RCA together (Royal College of Art).
A bit of Paris among pretty objects.
Old school maps (en Français dans le texte) along the stairway.
Looking pretty in the guest bedroom.
In the kitchen…
If you are coming to London and want a place to stay that is outside the bustle of central London yet, still within an easy commuting distance ( one half hour by the red bus lines), come and see Helen’s profile (and more photos) onher airbnb profile:
Cheers to you, Helen and family!
Hoping to see you all soon, friends.
Be well and happy weekend to all!
