“The overall intention was to renovate the dwelling in a joyful way that would absolutely characterize us as a present day Black British family. I felt this was specifically vital, remaining the mom of two minor Black girls, expanding up as minorities in today’s Britain. 

“I will have to confess, I located it extremely tricky to source inspiration for this aesthetic by seeking at inside magazines or social media. Especially pre-George Floyd’s murder, the visibility of Black people today and Black style in the interiors place was very significantly non-existent. So I had to do the exploration myself and comply with my instincts much more than I believed I would have to. I also started curating tales on my Instagram called ‘The Heritage of Black Interior Style and design from 5,000BC to tomorrow’, which has been overwhelmingly successful. This layout exploration has led to me collaborating with the Museum of the House on a forthcoming exhibition of the extremely West Indian entrance place aesthetic that I mentioned earlier!
