The Fun House

 This weekend I’ve been catching up on reading magazines and getting inspiration from other peoples pads.

Sam Bruce runs interior design company Swenglish Home and her home is full of quirky finds inspired by her love of collecting toys and dolls and her home town of Hastings, a Victorian seaside town, which attracts her to fairground lighting.

To steal the look, I’ve put together a design board, interpreting Sam’s style.

    I do like how they have incorporate some Urban Art into the rooms. Walls were made to have Art on them and I always get drawn into having a look. Some old classic images there from Pure Evil – Pandas Rock (picture 3) and Pure Evil – Bunny Fingers (picture 5).

    You really know your stuff Martin! Just had a look again at the art work on the walls, didn't realise it was so sinister, a bit worrying for the children? Is Pure Evil the name of the artist?
