As I mentioned in the previous post I had the opportunity to do two bedrooms on new years day at a party in East London. So after photographing Rich’s bedroom I stepped over the hallway and into Styx’s room, shutting the party off behind me. Bright and girly, Styx’s bedroom is a massive contrast to Rich’s – like a dressing up box with a bed in the corner, not too dissimilar to the bed in the film Amelie.
Styx says “My bedroom is about: bed, clothes and music. There is always music in my room; I think it feels empty without it. One of my favourite things to do is stay in bed on Saturday mornings listening to 6music or my new record player – my vinyl collection is a work in progress, so depending on my mood, I’ll put on either: T-Rex, The Doors or Leena Horne. I love clothes and I like the fact that I have plenty of space to keep them and try them on.”
When I asked her what she would save if her bedroom were on fire, it was no surprise that one of the items was clothing “I’d save my Alexander McQueen black leather studded shoe boots. And my pale blue ottoman that I purchased on eBay when moving into the house, it was an absolute bargain and the colours set the room off nicely, it’s also useful if people are in my room as they have somewhere to sit – looks good and it’s functional. I would definitely save that one."
