Revealing Beauty: The English Home

Posted by: skinflint In the press| Interiors

If you think you recognise this elegant 19th-century townhouse you might just be right… Home to interior designer Rebecca Roundell and our very own lead product engineer, Matt Jones, the enviable abode has also been used as a shoot location for some of our favourite vintage lighting campaigns. And now the secret’s out! With its very own feature in The English Home magazine.

Originally built in the 1820s, it was once home for a captain of one of the packet ships that sailed out of Falmouth Harbour, transporting post and goods across the world. But the interiors as you see them today are a far cry from the riot of bold colours the previous owners had decorated it in. Embarking on a sensitive and steady renovation much like the restoration of our vintage lights, Rebecca and Matt stripped it back to its natural surfaces to discover its more authentic character. 

Inside you’ll find a mix of vintage and antique furniture and finds, including a number of statement lights from us at skinflint. A 1950s grey enamelled pendant salvaged from Lobnitz Docks is suspended above the dining table in the kitchen (you can find similar fittings here). Meanwhile, vintage Czech opaline pendants and mid-century lights also feature. We just can’t get enough.
