Welcome to my home

A bit about me

I’m Lisa Comfort and I live with my boyfriend Matt, and our dog Poppy.

Where I live

My home is an Edwardian maisonette in London. We have lived here since 2013.

What I wanted to change

The flat wasn’t in a terrible condition when we moved in, but the en suite was in a bit of a sorry state, so we wanted to replace that. The whole place just needed freshening up with a lick of paint and a bit of love.

How I made it my own

I upcycled second-hand furniture, and filled my home with unique furnishings from my trips abroad.

My favourite part

The living room is the best room in the flat. It’s full of all my favourite pieces, and I just love how the light travels across the room from the roof terrace at the back.

About Homestyle

We’re so excited to bring you the second issue of HomeStyle magazine. Thank you to everyone who has been in touch, it’s great to hear all of your wonderful stories and see that we’ve ignited your creativity and energy to transform your homes. It’s been a fun-packed month here in the HomeStyle offices, let me tell you! I stepped into the battlefield of The Great Upcycling Challenge for the first time; see the results on page 84 – then please vote for me in our little competition on Twitter! I also visited some amazing spaces this issue, including the inspiring home of seamstress and professional crafter Lisa Comfort (our cover girl this month, see page 16). Everywhere I turned there was another idea Lisa had cleverly designed – and always high on style yet tight on budget. The team’s been busy again tracking down even more high street bargains for you to snap up, just turn the page to get started. And remember we want you to be a part of HomeStyle too, so do send us your project pictures and it’s never too late to be our cover girl!
