Inside Laura and Ian’s home
Both Laura and Ian have posted sneek peaks into their homes on their social media – if you’re lucky enough to catch them.
The pair live in a trendy home in North London, which is full of life and character. The theme of their house is bold colours and patterns, with a special addition in their garden…
Laura and Ian have their own pub in their back garden, that’s full of alcohol – including Guinness on tap of course. “The Snug” was built in their garden during the 2020 lockdown so that they could enjoy outside life in the comfort of their own home.
