Rosie Wolfenden (above), co-founder of cult British jewellery and accessories brand Tatty Devine, lives in Stoke Newington. Inspired by the past (Wolfenden is well-known for her 1950s attire), she has amassed a quirky collection of finds from markets and thrift stores including a guitar made from an old cigar box, an antique globe and a tile made by friend Rob Ryan. “It’s important to have everything on display. If it’s all neatly tucked away, I just think ‘What’s the point in having it?'” she says.
Tatty Devine, 44 Monmouth Street, WC2H 9EP (020 7836 2685) and 236 Brick Lane, E2 7EB (020 739 9191).
