It goes without saying that HIBS100 bloggers know about interiors, but what do their own homes actually look like?
From vintage to retro, modern to bohemian, our feature Tour a HIBS Home gives you the chance to see what style your favourite blogger has opted for in their own home. It’s an opportunity for you to get nosy and pick up some interiors inspiration along the way.
This week it’s all about the home of Lucy, who blogs at the very beautiful Capture By Lucy.
Lucy loves to share her thrifty finds and vintage treasures with her readers, so you might presume that her home has a retro style going on. Well read on to be surprised and inspired – for some aspects of Lucy’s home might surprise you.
The muted colours of greys, creams and soft greens give a real air of calm to the living room in Lucy’s home. This window frame mirror from The White Approach is a beautiful example of the way Lucy layers different shades of whites and greys to create a relaxed environment.
This is a space where adults can unwind, letting the hustle and bustle of the day melt away in a beautifully serene and grown-up setting. Lucy uses vintage pieces she’s thrifted on her travels, alongside modern investments, creating texture with different patterns and textiles.
While the overall colours are soft and muted, Lucy has added splashes of brights with flowers and books, lending a fresh feel to the room and a sense of fun alongside the air of sophistication. Lucy pairs her cream sofa from Sofa Sofa with a stunningly modern Eames Rocker and a cosy rug from Dunelm Mill.
We love the way Lucy has styled her grandma’s 100 year old wicker suitcase for some clever storage and to add detail to the side table. You can pick a wicker suitcase of your own up from HomeSense.
Looking at all the gorgeous vintage pieces, you may think that Lucy’s whole home has a bygone era feel to it. Well, you’d be wrong. The kitchen is clean and modern, utilising dark woods to complement shiny cabinets. And, of course, an island to service the hub of family life.
