Sarah Akwisombe's eclectic London flat is a riot of colour and pattern. Her unique style mixes Art Deco with midcentury modern, sprinkled with urban chic. Here, she shares her inspiration and design influences from eBay to art galleries and even Tarantino films. Take a peek below.
‘Our home was a bit of a shell when we first moved in. The walls were really badly washed with Magnolia paint. it didn't have any carpet and the kitchen and bathrooms were pretty gross! But we could see past all that and saw that it had some really lovely original features with good room sizes. The biggest challenge was probably just getting everything to the level of being liveable! We had just had a baby and were living in my mum’s house so there was a big scramble to get everything painted, floors laid, furniture in place etc. But we got there!
‘I'm proud of our home being a really good representation of our family. Nothing's predictable and there's a lot of vibrant colour (like our bedroom painted in Hawaiian Blue 2) with some statement wallpapers to finish it off. We really like to mix vintage with modern so I'm proud of some of the bargain pieces that I've managed to pick up along the way, like Art Deco sideboards for £20!'
