Stylish Secondhand London Flat

I wanted to share with you today this stylish London flat filled with secondhand, vintage and upcycled finds.

It’s rented by Cat, who blogs at the beautiful lifestyle blog Take Courage.  Lately she shared how they’ve furnished and decorated the London flat that they moved into last year, taking it from average flat into a stunning and homely space.  As renters I’m amazed at how much personality and uniqueness that they’ve managed to inject into the space through their furniture and accessory choices, and without making any major alterations to the place.

Cat is a lover of all things vintage and secondhand – regularly attending markets and visiting vintage shops – and this really shines through in her lovely home.  And as well as the enormous luck Cat seems to have in finding such great vintage finds, she’s also pretty darned crafty and has upcycled a lot of their furniture to fit with her taste.

Have a little look for yourself:

The kitchen is just as homely as the living room:

And the quirky vintage feel continues into the bedroom:

Cat and her boyfriend made the fabric covered headboard themselves, and customised their Ikea chest of drawers.

Cat inherited the wardrobe from the previous tenants of the flat.  It wasn’t to her taste so she got busy with paint and wallpaper and transformed it into something beautiful that fits perfectly with their flat.  She upcycled the suitcases on top of the wardrobe too!
