Hello, I’m Kerry from Seventy Tree. I’m an illustrator living in London with my husband and two children. I’m very happy to be posting on Jennifer’s blog today while she is on her travels - I have known Jennifer ‘online’ for some time now and we have some nice little back and forth emails across the globe - our boys are very close in age and similarly, we are both trying to combine motherhood with running busy shops! Not always easy!

Anyway, I live in a 1960s flat (apartment) in a very leafy area of North London. It is pretty small, but the location is fantastic. Due to its small proportions and that I only have a 50mm lens, my photos tend to be of close-up details around my home. I am a big fan of Marimekko, Lucky Boy Sunday and the wonderful Donna Wilson (as you can see). I love to change things around at home and display finds by designer makers I have discovered through the blog world and of course, Etsy - many of them have become friends, both in real-life and online, so having their work in my home feels even more special. The apple cushion is one of my latest additions and is by Studio Meez. I also love the work of Fanja Ralison and Elisabeth Dunker, who designed the tea-towel underneath the Marimekko bowl. Much too nice to be drying my dishes with! Like many others, I have been enjoying the ‘neon’ revival, so am very happy to own one of Fanja's mushroom cushions.

All these little details create a relaxed, comfortable home, where my children can play freely. Even though we could do with some extra square meters here, what we have is pretty good, so I try not to complain too much!

Have a nice day and thanks again for having me ♡

  1. Hm, I don't know if it is just an issue on my end, but I can not see seven of your pics here. I just see the Flickr info that this image is currently unavailable. However, I love the little apple cushion - this one I can see:-)

  8. Gorgeous photos of a lovely home (and so much Marimekko deliciousness!) - I also have a tiny house so I understand the need for close-ups!
