Kieran & Laura, Glasgow

2C87E64B-1E91-4F13-9670-F6898E8415CE

Kieran and Laura’s two bedroom flat lies in the up-and-coming area of Strathbungo, just south of Glasgow centre. The flat is full of Scottish memorabilia, from a tartan blanket draped across an armchair to the collection of Charles Rennie Mackintosh prints scattered throughout the rooms.

The couple are big plant lovers, as you can see, and have a collection of over 50 and counting. The greenery helps to bring a little life into the flat when the skies outside are a typical Scottish grey.
