House boat bedroom

House boat bedroom

Classic-boat enthusiast Katie Fontana’s love of pure
craftsmanship and aesthetic simplicity resulted in the bespoke
kitchen design company Plain English as well a charming houseboat and boathouse where
she lives when she is in London. The ex-Customs and Excise
cutter called Stork is moored in St Katharine Docks, E1. ‘In 2008,
shortly after our father died, my sister and I were in Maldon,
Essex, where he   lived, Katie explains. We
spotted Stork for sale and thought she looked cute. When I noticed
she was built in 1926, the year my father was born, it felt like a
sign, so I bought her as a little place to stay when I was in
London. The interior had been Ikea-ed, and wasn’t really to my
taste, but I knew if I covered it all in Farrow & Ball paint it
would be fine. One day, I’d like to give her a full authentic
refit. For now, she’s a bit of fun.’
