“Your home should tell a story of who you are, and be a collection of what you love.”, I live by this quote by interior design Nate Berkus!
Since being a very young age, I always loved creating living environments that reflected my style, my personality and character. Instead of paying with my dollies in the dollhouse, I decorated the rooms with cushions and bedsheets that I made from leftover fabrics, rearranged the furniture and even went as far as painting the walls of the dolls house with my crayons.
After years in fashion and TV journalism, I finally followed my true passion and created my interior brand Eva Sonaike!
So you can imagine how excited I was, when Jo Leevers, an interior writer and stylist who writes for the UK’s leading publications, such as The Guardian, Homes & Antiques and LivingEtc contacted me earlier this year to have a look around my house.
And one sunny Sunday in early May, my dream came true, my house was featured in the Observer Magazine! I will share more images from my house later this year but in the meantime, have a look at https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2018/may/06/african-express-how-bright-textiles-brought-one-london-home-to-life Enjoy!
