A vintage Seventies style home

Eco clothes designer Nicole Frobusch has used Seventies styling and vintage furniture to create a quirky family home

Sitting on a leather second-hand barber’s shop chair at her kitchen table, Nicole says that becoming a mother has made her want to recycle even more. “Once the children came along, I thought hard about what they were wearing, what they were eating, and the world that we live in.” As a parent, she had also been disappointed by the poor choice available for fun children’s clothes. And it wasn’t long before she was cutting up old jumpers and making her two girls creatively recycled outfits. “Soon, I had designed my first collection, and Nixie Clothing was born,” she says. This year marks Nixie’s third anniversary, and she has just begun to wholesale her designs. She describes the collection as “bohemian and flower power with a hint of fairytale”, offering everything from leg warmers and pretty smock dresses to tops with bat-wing sleeves. 

Nicole and Paul moved into their terraced house in east London nine years ago when Nicole was pregnant with Ivy. “I hated the area at first!” she says. But she now works from a nearby artists’ studio and, with her daughters attending a local school, she is firmly plugged into the community and its many cultures. “There’s a great mix of creative people here,” says Nicole, who relishes the secure base they’ve created, particularly with Paul often away on tour. “I’m a homely person, but I don’t like routine – so I don’t mind him going away,” she says. “It’s the coming home that is the fun part.”
