Meet the Blogger and their Weather Clock - Viki Bell
This week we are meeting London lifestyle blogger Viki Bell
Can you tell us a bit about your blog please?
Of course! I started my blog about 5 years ago now as a way to explore more of London. I realised I’d come to London after uni but very quickly settled into doing the same things on weekend. My blog is my way to explore more, do different things and record things I’ve done. I guess it is a bit like a public diary in that way.
What's your favourite room in the house and why?
Very difficult one! At the moment it’s our garden (does that count?!) as it’s so glorious but otherwise my lounge. It’s got these giant floor cushions and I love stretching out and watching Netflix on the projector or pulling out a board game.
Where do you hang your Bramwell Brown Weather Clock and why?
The hallway. We’ve just been redoing it and have a massive mural painted by my sister-in-law and some my paintings hanging about. I really like how cluttered we’ve made it and the clock fits perfectly on the wall.
Can you sum your Bramwell Brown Weather Clock up in three words?
Pretty, unique, timeless (haha)
Any tips for incorporating clocks into your interior design?
Hang things around them so they don’t just look a bit random! And feature them where you pass through so they catch your eye!
What are the big interior trends that we should be looking out for in the second half of 2018?
Good question! You know I don’t really follow interior trends too much. I love pops of colour so hoping that will be a trend - although I feel that’s maybe a bit more summer. I also love massive fluffy blankets and candles in the winter. Maybe any of these!
Finally, we love mechanical/ analogue objects; what mechanical/ analogue do you have in your home or remember from your childhood that you love(d)?
Polaroid camera! We have one at my in-laws house and we always use it to snap pics of family and friends hanging out, having dinners and throwing parties. We only ever take one snap at a time and that kind of makes it more magical - if you don’t get the shot in one then that’s it.
