The House of Lucy Fenton

One of the simple pleasures in my life is curling up with a really good book, or an inspirational magazine. I'm in between books at the moment (any recommendations welcome),
but I've been lapping up the latest Inside Out magazine, I think it might be my favourite issue. 
Bianca and Ryan, the artists/designers behind design label Page Thirty Three, take us through their delicious home (because it truly is), and their favourite weekend haunts.

But it was the article on the home of Lucy Fenton and her husband, Josh Markey, that got me really excited. The couple own my favourite shop ever, Fenton & Fenton, and their home is a one bedroom apartment above the store. As you can imagine, stock from the shop often finds it way into their home, which is a rhapsody of colourful textiles and eclectic collections. A-maz-ing!!!

Lucy loves animals, and you'll find them throughout her home, either as taxidermy,
artwork, homewares, or Cooper, her very much alive staffy dog.

This rug pulls the room together, and draws your eye over to the amazing cupboard built from
Coca-Cola packaging.

Framed tribal necklaces live in harmony with colourful paintings and a rustic, salvaged door.

The Orangina poster was an engagement present, and is the colour-hit hero in the dining room.

Industrial lights, a spotted blind and colourful tins help to create a happy corner in the kitchen.

A rustic dresser and row of hooks are perfect for storage as well as display.

Gorgeous French chairs covered in suzani fabric sit below Lucy's collection of cards & clippings in the office.

In the bedroom colorful bedding, including a sari-covered bedhead, are off-set by a beautiful
white French chest of drawers (below).



  1. wow....such a stunning apartment!

  2. Wow beautiful house. And the shop!! That's just a little slice of heaven! Even though it's out of my budget for the most part, it's still nice to look through and dream :)

  3. Loooooove it! There is a fabulous piece of furniture in each room that begs for a closer look. I am particularly drawn to that beautiful leather chair in the first picture!

  4. It's such an amazing space and you're right, looks very much like an extension of the store :)

  5. Aha! I saw one or two of these images a few days ago but had no idea where they were from- thanks for sharing. So charming- I am especially smitten with the dining area.


It's lovely to hear from you. Thanks for your comment. Best wishes, Vic xxx
