Restoring Lansdowne began as a social media seedling in 2016 when Kristine Hall set up the @restoringlansdowne Instagram account to document extensive renovations to the East London Victorian house she shares with her husband and two troublesome cats.
Over 6 years she transformed the property to create a beautiful, functional home that marries original Victorian features with a unique, modern-vintage design aesthetic and practical creature comforts. Goodbye shag carpets and magnolia gloss, and good riddance.
Now with over 43,000 followers on Instagram, Kristine is one of the UK’s most popular interiors Instagrammers and her designs have appeared in Ideal Home and Style at Home magazines, Evening Standard Homes & Property, MADE.com, Buzzfeed, Sheerluxe and leading interiors blogs in the UK and abroad. She regularly contributes to interiors publications and has appeared on BBC Radio as an expert on DIY, renovations and the Instagram interiors boom. Kristine also creates social media content for top interior and homeware brands.
In early 2017, Kristine launched Restoring Lansdowne Interiors, providing affordable design and styling services in London and across the UK through its bespoke online design packages. They specialise in modern vintage style – ultra cool and sophisticated spaces with a beyond-trend blend of clean lined contemporary, stand-out vintage pieces and edgy industrial, scandinavian and luxe influences. Never over-designed or stuffy; always fit for actually LIVING in.
