“I’ve always been a bit of a decorator. I think if I wasn’t a singer I’d probably be in stage setting or interior design or something. I like clutter and I’m quite visually greedy. I can’t have things to be plain I have to have things looking interesting… maybe I’m just a frustrated interior designer stuck in a singing career.”
Florence Welch is no stranger to interior design and decorating. In fact, she was almost a professional stage designer before her life took the unexpected turn into music. She has an innate knack for aesthetics that you can see in every facet of her environment- from what she wears out on tour, to how purposefully cluttered all aspects of this home are!

“I think that to a very great extent we are partners with the divine in this enterprise called history. That is an ongoing relationship, and there is absolutely no guarantee that things will automatically work out to our best advantage.”
“Conceit spoils the finest genius. There is not much danger that real talent or goodness will be overlooked long even if it is, the consciousness of possessing and using it well should satisfy one, and the great charm of all power is modesty.”
-Louisa May Alcott
