Hello, I'm A London Lifestyle Blogger

Hello and welcome to my blog, Homegirl London. I’m a London Lifestyle Blogger writing about my two loves – Interiors and London. As a London Lifestyle Blogger, I feature positive and original content, which is all written by me, Tanya Lake (Homegirl London). These subjects include interior design ideas for every room in your home. I also write about things to do in London including walks, neighbourhood guides, museums and galleries to visit. I write London restaurant reviews and showcase independent London shops. So as you can see, my London blog covers the city and so much more.

"I started this blog in April 2012 with help from my Homeboy (that’s not his real name!) who created the website and provides tech support. My professional career was in the field of brand public relations for over 20 years. During this time, I owned a PR company for 11 years. My passion has always been in homes and interiors. This originates from painting and decorating to pay my way through college and working on building sites with my dad and brothers to fund university. I also love London and adore living in this wonderful city. One day it occurred to me to start a blog so I could share my appreciation of interiors and London with you!" Tanya Lake/Homegirl London.

I moved to a converted warehouse apartment in February 2018 and spent six months renovating it (see the pictures above). I bought the property through the Acorn Estate Agency, who specialise in the South East of London. They took these lovely pictures for me.

I’m located just off Bermondsey Street in SE1, my home lies between London Bridge and Tower Bridge. I see The Shard every day which just happens to be the central building in my logo! This is such an exciting part of London and I feel so lucky to live here. You’ll see plenty of features about this area as I start to explore and share my findings with you.
