Kris McGowan’s 60s rented flat is full of objects and accessories she’s found in rubbish skips, at car boot sales and on the high street
A bit about me
Hello, I’m Kris McGowan and I live in East Sussex with my husband Tommy and our son, Tom.
Where I live
My home is a 1960s flat in Eastbourne – also known as the sunshine coast. We’ve privately rented here for four years.
What I wanted to change
All the flats in the building are very dark, being surrounded by trees, so I wanted to create a light and bright space and show what you can do with a rental property.
How I made it my own
I painted the entire flat in pale shades and got rid of all the original window blinds which really opened up each of the rooms.
My favourite part
I love my living room as it feels so cosy and inviting. I probably have far too many cushions and throws, but I don’t care!
