A bit about yourself:

My name is Jeska and I moved out to the countryside three years ago and can now never go back to town!

Nearly all my days are spent running our online lifestyle store The Future Kept - with my husband Dean and writing my blog Lobster & Swan.

In any spare time I am mad for all things plant and garden related!

Where you live and who you live with:

I live in a cliff top bungalow in East Sussex with my husband and our two tabby cats.

Favourite/coolest item in your home:

All the plants - they make me smile.

Fail-safe decorating trick:

Paint everything white first, survey the space and then build layers with colour and texture.

First thing you thought of this morning:


A talent you wish you had:

To be able to sing well - mostly for my husbands sake!

Advice to your younger self:

Learn a second language while you could still soak up al the information easily. My app tells me I am 3% fluent in French now - it’s going to be a long road.

Favourite band of all times:

The Doors - from the minute I discovered them at age 13.

In summer - with a good gin and tonic out in the evening sun.

Jeska's Little black book of Hastings Old Town

Coolest thing about Hastings :

All the beautiful outside spaces - the beach - the parks and a country park with wild ponies too!

Where you like to hang out:

We love to walk around all the alleys and twittens in the Old Town, peep over the walls and get some garden inspiration - and to wind down I love the Crown Pub for brunch, dinner or drinks with friends!

Favourite restaurant/ bar /café:

The Pelican for comfort food and The Crown (again) for beer and food!

Top 3 local stores:

Butlers Emporium, Soak and Made in Hastings.

Top 3 online interior stores/brands:

Urbanara, Botany and Etsy has it all!
