“Creating a happy life, for me, starts at home”
Hello you! I’m Victoria and I’m an interior stylist, editor and all-around promoter of a positive mindset.
Up until March of this year, I was a hobby blogger, writing about beautiful interiors and buying far too much homeware. However, life threw me in at the deep end of running my own business and now I’m lucky to say Apartment Number 4 is my full-time job.
I knew I wanted to build a destination that not only inspired you to create a warm, inviting and stylish place to live, but I wanted people to see you didn’t need to take a bank loan out to do so. We’re not talking about upcycling furniture here, although clever DIY’s never go amiss, but more hunting out the supermarket treasures, the stylish high street finds and the clever ways to make what you already own, work for you.
I’ve rented for the last 10 years so I feel like I’ve got a handle on what works in terms of decorating your home-for-now, as well as first-time time buyers looking to build their nest without splashing heaps of cash. I’m here to edit the inspirational and showcase the affordable.
Not only do I write three posts a week on the blog, but you’ll also discover my monthly digital publication, 4 Magazine, which is completely shoppable and filled with home décor ideas and advice.
So what about outside of blogging? I’m a peppermint tea drinker who gets tagged in at least one chicken nugget meme a day, I live in the gorgeous city of Leeds and I have two rescue cats – Shirley Bassey and Audrey Hepburn – who are naughty as hell. I like to travel solo at least once a year – 2018 was the year of San Francisco – and I’m planning on going back to New York for a month sometime soon if the universe has my back. And if you asked me to describe my own interior style, I’d say, if it’s from Anthropologie, it’s me.
