These stunning interiors will make you want to hit the flea market

The most beautiful, unique and interesting pieces of furniture and home accessories are often found in markets, reclamation yards, auctions and even eBay. Sure, they might not look like much to begin with, but coat an old dusty lamp in neon pink paint or cover an old stained tray table in a shiny red laquer and you’ll find that they were indeed the pieces your home was crying out for. In these homes below there are the most gorgeous things that aren’t easy to find in your highstreet shop or homeware supstores. From upcycled mid century modern chairs to fabulously upholstered headboards and from quirky plant pots to hand made ornaments, these interiors inspire weekends of treasure hunting through flea markets and second hand shops. Turn an old pair of mannequin legs into a lamp table or flower stand, collect unusual plates, hats or baskets to create an interesting wall display, find a one-of-a-kind artwork (like my giraffe) to adorn you walls, paint old antique chairs a crisp shiny white and even upcycle plastic toys into fun bookends by spray painting them in a bold colour. Turn treasure hunting into your next hobby and let your collection showcase your personality and transform your home into a fascinating and fearlessly fun space.

Stuck for time? Browse websites like Rockett St George (my personal favourite), Trouva, Out There InteriorsMiaFleurEtsy, eBay, and Lovethesign for design-led pieces.
