CREATIVE LIVING - Sahra Mist
We step inside the home of Goodhood Life Store manager Sahra Mist to talk living in London, furnishing her home and the perfect Sunday.
Where are you from originally? What made you want to make the move to London?
I was born and grew up in Hampshire by the sea but moved to London nine years ago for Uni and haven’t left since. Clapton is my home for now.
What are your favourite food spots?
To eat out it's 'My Neighbours the Dumplings'. Seriously good hand made dumplings! You’ll have to wait for a table but there is a Sake bar in the basement with a changing weekly cocktail menu. To eat in it has to be Yard Sale Pizza...my Friday ritual. Don’t forget the garlic dip…
What are your three favourite brands at the Life Store right now?
- Hasami Porcelain. Each piece is made from a specific mixture of porcelain substance and clay, creating a super clean matte texture that is firmer and sharper than earthenware yet still very comfortable to hold, plus any meal will look great in them.
- Puebco. We've stocked this for a while now and it fits the Life Store's aesthetic perfectly. It's utilitarian living at its finest.
- Snow Peak. Born out of a dissatisfaction with outdoor product, Snow Peak strive to create the most superior gear on the market. They've just released a Field Oven that attaches onto the Pack & Carry Fireplace that can heat a pizza up in five minutes...revolutionary camping!
What is your favourite item at the Life Store?
This is forever changing but right now I’m really enjoying making pour over coffee from my handcrafted Kinto Slow Coffee Carafe.
How do you go about choosing what you buy for your home?
I just buy what I like, old and new. Your home should make you happy but at the same time it’s important to be memorable. Even though I own a lot of stuff, I tend to only buy things that are well designed and made.
Do you collect anything?
I used to collect Lego minifigures but it got out of hand. There was once a hotdog shaped figure I was after for ages and made my brother drive round four stores until we found it (they’re blind packed so you have to feel your way through the packaging).
