I’m so excited to share this interview on here. Last month I was asked by Urban Outfitters if I’d like my flat to be featured on their blog. Immediately saying yes, looking around at the chaos surrounding me I started to panic, being the most disorganised messiest person I usually am. So I embarked on the biggest clean and tidy up of my flat I’ve ever had, and it felt really good. Honestly, I now need to pressure of people coming round every week to force me into tidying I swear.
One of the questions I usually get asked about my flat is: ‘how do you keep your flat clean?’. Well, I now the answer… HOOVER EVERYTHING. I’ve posted the UO interview Q and A below, if you’d like to have a read. They got a few little facts wrong, obviously I’m a vintage buyer, not designer, and everyone who knows me, knows I have a wardrobe full of flares/bells/whatever you like to call them, I love them. But anyway, hope you like it. You can also find the full article on the UO blog here.
With her walls lined with peculiar maps, elephant ornaments and around a thousand vintage trinkets, Sara quickly admits, “If I see something I love, I have to have it. Some might say it’s slightly on the verge of hoarding”. We sat down for a cuppa to find out
UO: How do you describe your home to someone who has never seen it before?
SARA: I guess I’d say my home is a reflection of my personality; it’s an unusual, eclectic treasure chest, with a lot of patterns and textures going on. I wanted my home to have a laid-back bohemian vibe and for it to look like it had a story to tell, as if the walls could talk. It’s very much a creative work in progress.
UO: Where do you go to find all this amazing stuff?
SARA: Anywhere and everywhere, I’m always treasure hunting. Car boot sales, vintage shops, antique and flea markets- I try and hunt at least once a week to see if there’s anything amazing.
