thedesignfiles Today on TDF, the unique Croydon home of fashion designer @christopher_graf and his partner Glenn Francis, an IT analyst. Christopher and Glen's home is full of surprises - like this collection of vintage ventriloquist dolls, who live in the spare bedroom. ‘We often joke they are to deter people from wanting to stay overnight’ says Christopher!

thedesignfiles It's pretty common knowledge that my trusty offsider @lisamariecorso is the funniest instagrammer going 'round... But did you KNOW she also has her very own blog - 'I Won't Apologise' ( www.iwontapologise.com ) !??? Here, every Wednesday, you will find a hilarious weekly story detailing the quirks of 20-something year old modern life, with illustrations by her super talented pal @aliceoehr . Today, the 'Tupperware Edition' just went live... And I can vouch for the fact that LMC does leave a trail of Tupperware wherever she goes... But It's a small price to pay for working with this crazy superstar every day... ️ check it out ! Www.iwontapologise.com 2w
