A vintage Seventies style home

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

You could say that it was almost inevitable that Nicole Frobusch – eco clothes designer, former singer with rock band Medieval Babes, and now mother-of-two – would create a home dedicated to all things vintage. She and her husband, Paul Winter-Hart, the drummer in Kula Shaker, are artistic and eco-minded – and their children, Ivy, eight, and Faye, five, are already following in their footsteps. For Nicole, designing her relaxed family home in east London has been all about creative salvage and adaptation rather than shopping. 

Most of us, if in need of a new coffee table, will hotfoot it down to the high street, but not Nicole. “Paul won’t let me near Ikea!” she says. Besides, Nicole’s mother is Italian and her father is German, and she grew up in Münster, Germany in the Seventies where it was commonplace – even then – for people to recycle and reuse, and Nicole believes that everything can have at least a second, if not a third, life. “I know I can always make something new out of a cast-off,” she says.
