Our décor keeps the holiday magic alive

A top-floor, light-filled Victorian flat is the perfect backdrop for blogger Lynsay Neil’s colourful possessions, inspired by her love of Florida

Welcome to my home

A bit about me

I am Lynsay Neil, also known by my blogger name, Miss West End Girl (misswestendgirl. com) and I live here with my partner, Gary Scott, also a blogger (troublewithfilm.com).

Where i live

My house is a two-bedroom Victorian flat in Glasgow’s Southside.

What i wanted to change

The flat was totally white which was a bit too clinical – it was begging for colour!

How I made it my own

We have painted and papered key areas and built fitted cupboards to store our considerable record, film and book collections.

My favourite part

Due to the light and calm scheme, the living room is an inspirational space where everything happens – I write, record my podcasts, blog and socialise.

About Homestyle

I always feel incredibly lucky that it’s part of my job to go around the country visiting beautiful homes to shoot for the magazine, and this month was particularly special. I was so inspired by the home of Gigi Eligoloff (this month’s cover girl, see page 16). She has filled her small London home almost entirely from lost and second-hand treasures, yet the result is a relaxed and surprisingly sophisticated style that can’t help but make you smile. She really ticked the HomeStyle box when we discovered she had bought her entire kitchen on Gumtree for £900! Another showstopper this issue is the upcycling feature – turn to page 85 right now for the most stunning cupboard revamp. It’s proof that breathing life back into things other people don’t want can create items that will be treasured for generations to come. And if you’re about to embark on your own makeover, don’t miss our top trend hot list on page 74 – with these ideas, you won’t just be one small step ahead of the crowds, you’ll be one huge HomeStyle leap!
