last year i moved into a grubby magnolia box room that was unfurnished apart from a divan, two drawing pins and a few stray pubes. my lack of initiative meant that i lived in squalor for the earlier part of my stay above foneworld, which culminated in the sub-how clean is your house scenes (what's more embarrassing, my discarded scants or that libertines single?) pictured above. anyway, then i decided to paint the walls white, set up an old decorating table my housemate had left over from an exhibition, put my clothes in a cupboard on the landing instead of the floor, realised that i could improve the layout by putting the bed next to the window and that the increase in noise from one of South London’s noisiest junctions, full of winos, drugs and weapons (lol lol lol) was marginal. sadly i didn't take any nicely staged photos of the stunning end result (i even had a petunia in there at one point) without a DELL on show for starters but still, l@@k, it's not as gross!

one of the flats down the road from my old old house in camberwell has window boxes painted in green and white hoops and says celtic park above the door on a floral plaque.
omg rabbits by sarah-wynne
who knew that black and white rabbits run wild in canada?? this rabbit reminds me of my first boyhood rabbit, jumper. later we had a dwarf lop-eared rabbit named bun that vanished from our back garden at around the same time stories were circulating locally of an animal fighting ring hungry for new blood. obv my mum and dad didn't tell me this til i was 20.

bungalow bliss by Totalitaria
the bit about changing the face of rural ireland is very ominous. this bungalow looks EXACTLY like a hornby model i built circa 1994. i only had a train set so i could have the accompanying houses. my favourites were the red brick victorian semis with sash-effect windows.
