this unique sneak peek comes to us from designer helen friel and her flat mates nicky starr, flo and rachel. i just loved the way helen’s polaroid pictures came out and thought they gave her space such a light, airy feel.
helen shares her flat with three roommates, who’ve helped decorate the space with pieces they’ve found mostly in charity/thrift shops and left on the streets of london. helen describes their best find as, “an original london county council clock” but is still mourning the loss of a “plastic duck that was in the same skip- and had gone by the time we went back for it”. their apartment at the top of streatham hill was an instant favorite with the girls because of its turret on the roof and the views of london sunsets they get from inside. thanks so much to helen, nicky, flo and rachel for sharing their space with us- it’s always fun to see where young artists call home. be sure to click “read more” below to see additional, full-sized images after the jump.
