Grant Pierrus – aka Interior Style Hunter - and interior designer Sarah Mailer, otherwise known as Girl About House wanted to create a look that was simple yet striking, rich in colour and texture.

“We wanted to make something that still looked really high end, despite being on a budget,” says Sarah – who bought a canvas from the Brixton BHF shop and used paints to fashion her own art piece. “The chest was the centrepiece of our room – as soon as we saw that, we could already visualise the room coming together.”
