Home Tour: Colourful London Houseboat

Photography | Alun Callender
Have you ever considered living on a houseboat? I don't think I ever have until I saw this delightful tour of author Josie Curran's houseboat on the Thames in London. Shot by photographer Alun Callender, the houseboat packs a punch of colour with pretty, colourful vignettes and bold hits of pattern. I really like how Josie has mixed old, vintage pieces in with more modern designs. The bedroom has a very relaxing feel to it and the right-on-the-water decked area is certainly very appealing, but it's the cosy, colourful dining area that wins out for me. What do you like about Josie Curran's houseboat?

  5. There are some amazing houseboats in Amsterdam as well, I love how they put lots of pots and plants around them to make a little garden. I love the use of colour in this houseboat, it looks so fun and inviting.

  12. Hi Will

    What an absolutely stunning houseboat. I love the way they've colour-coded the books!

    The vintage containers used for the flowers and the floral bedspread are gorgeous.

    And the boat is moored just down the road from me...

  13. It looks lovely, is it actually on the water or beside it, do you think it gets rocky when the weather is bad?
    I have that Bianca Hall heart seen in the last photo but in black!
