Lucinda Mitra's Scandi, Rustic Home
I'm Lucinda, and I live with my husband James and our 2 year old daughter Sienna in East Sussex. This is our first home and we moved here from London in 2015. I started my blog and Instagram feed, to document the changes I was making to the house, more to show family and friends what I'd been getting up to. It wasn't until I left my job as a Secondary School English teacher, when I found out I was pregnant and then was able to focus on blogging full time, and decided to do see where it would take me- which has been such an exciting journey in itself!
My inspirations are really varied, I wish I was one of those people that can commit to one particular style, but I can't seem to do it!! I really love Scandi, rustic décor and I have some influences from East Africa, where my parents were both born, so I have an eclectic mix of modern and vintage pieces scattered around my home. I love moody, dark tones, which are apparent in my living room and kitchen (I upcycled the units myself in Farrow and Ball's Railings), but I also love white walls and colour pops, which I embrace in my bedrooms. I think anyone who loves interiors, will always say they're never finished with decorating, and I definitely feel the same – but it's nice to see the journey I'm on in our home.
