spotlight on: lisa stickley

Lisa Stickley’s bags may be on the arms of A-list stars such as Angelina Jolie, SJP and Kirsten Dunst, but now she can brag about something even more impressive… a 3-page spread in this month’s House Beautiful magazine. All of the contents of her south London home tell a story, and the vintage feel is down to the fact that, according to Lisa, “I often think I was born in the wrong era. I’m drawn towards the thirties and forties.” It’s a gorgeously cosy space, and one that Lisa is very proud to call her own. I particularly love the 1930s storage unit in her kitchen:

Lisa’s design business is booming, which is testimony to her drive and passion for what she does – her team now consists of 10 people, and her nostalgic prints are praised the world over. Stand out items for me are her bright polka dot bedding, anything featuring the cheery daisy design and, always a sucker for a Royal Wedding tribute (as seen here, here and here), the limited edition ‘William & Kate’ mug. Since her shop is a mere 10 minute bus ride away from my flat, I’m going to head over and treat myself to that very keepsake. If Lisa continues the way she is, I have a feeling it’s going to be worth a bob or two in the future…
