A play with pastels: inside Lindsey Isla’s colourful Margate home
We took a trip down to Margate to visit content creator Lindsey Isla’s colourful seaside home, where she lives with her boyfriend George and their dog, Sunday. Her home is bright and joyful, thanks to her playful yet considered use of colour, set against a paired-back, minimal aesthetic. Take a tour of her newly painted home and read about those ultra retro tiles, carpeted walls, and Lindsey and George’s shared love of pink.
Of the decorating process, Lindsey explains; “I think if you can dress yourself, then you can dress your home. I was a bit nervous when I moved in here because I’d never decorated a house before, but I feel like it’s worked! I don’t intentionally dress like my house but today I’ve got pink and green on so there you go—I match the kitchen.”
In the kitchen, Lindsey’s paired Pink 03 walls with modular white Ikea units. Like the rest of us, she gets most of her inspiration from Instagram and Pinterest and, unable to find any countertops she liked, Lindsey decided to tile her kitchen surfaces using white tiles and pink grouting. “I even tiled the kitchen table. I’ve gone a bit tile mad”.
