We’ve been chatting to Beauty, Fashion and Lifestyle influencer Sophie Hannah all about her home renovations! Over the past 18 months Sophie has put a lot of creative energy into making a mark on her home! Scroll down to read the Q + A and also, check out Sophie’s amazing home!
I’m Sophie Hannah – a Beauty, Fashion and Lifestyle Blogger who changes her hair colour every month. I love experimenting with makeup and my style and for the last 18 months I have been able to put my creativity into my home.
I’d say my house was difficult to sum up overall as each room is so different. Some rooms have dark interiors with an eclectic décor and others are focused on pastel colours and beautiful pattern tiles. Overall though the house is super colourful and has a lot of personality. You can tell we love jungle interior vibes though… A lot!
I have a bureau that is probably 20-30 years old. It was my Dads and when he passed away I got to keep some of his possessions and his bureau was one of them. I am actually about to upcycle it and transform it from pine wood to a pastel pink! Stay tuned on @sophiehannahhome for the transformation.
I made an amazing gluten free banana bread the other day during lockdown. I think everyone is baking this, but I thought I’d share in case anyone else is gluten free. You can find the recipe here!
It was definitely a gradual thing; we’d never renovated before. Before we started looking for a renovation project I had been pinning and saving to an Instagram board, inspiration for each room. Some of the rooms are very similar to my ideas at the start, some have definitely developed. I did find it hard being set on a theme/idea for a room and then seeing more inspiration online and then swaying with ideas mid renovation! It’s so hard to make those final decisions.
Definitely homeware shopping, a girls night out and a pub roast dinner on a Sunday!
I’m actually getting lots of house bits done. The bits you’d usually say you’re going to do at the weekend but never get round to it! Like putting up blinds, up-cycling furniture, putting up wall art and shelves. I’m also doing my own press on nail art at home so my nails are still on fleek for my beauty and fashion videos, I’m baking and working out! I’m also still working which is great. I’m a full time Beauty/Fashion/Lifestyle influencer at @sophiehannah if anyone wants to come and say hi.
This is so hard! I can’t pick so I’m going to name a few homeware designers I love right now: Silken Favours & Emma J Shipley.
Classic! I love leopard print, it just goes with everything! I’ve got lots of leopard print throughout my house.
Now this is cliché, but my phone and my laptop – it’s been great to still be able to work and video call friends. And…. Oh this is hard to think of a third! My Marshall speaker – sitting in the garden, with the sun shining and blasting summer tunes is getting me through!
