David Farrell

It started with a crane. One day back in March I was walking along Kingsland Road in Dalston and took a shot on my iphone of a new build skyline and yellow cranes. I uploaded it to Instagram and then I read this comment:
@60three Move the camera down slightly and you would have had a nice view of my flat.
@your_bedroom Oh really, I live just up Dalston Lane.
@60three You should photograph my room for your blog seeing, as we’re neighbours?davidF
So I did. David studied Fashion and Textile Management at Nottingham Trent and now works as a Fashion Buyer for The Hideout and does Sales and PR for Norse Projects. He shares his flat with two other guys.
WIYB: So how long have you lived here?
David: 6 months.
WIYB: What does your bedroom mean to you?
David: Its my personal space and more so because I share the flat. When I moved in it was brand-new and sparse, so I’ve pretty much filled my room with my stuff to make it feel more lived in.
WIYB: You do have a lot of books and stuff?
David: Yeah, I’m a bit of hoarder. Most of the books are design related. I’ve always had a thing for interiors, I like  Apartmento, The Plant Journal and Where They CreateThe Pinocchio is by a designer, Kaws. I get a lot of things from work, like the Bunney pinsThe Wilson Brothers chair and the Map of Africa print that was a collaboration with DJ Harvey and Thom Bullock.
WIYB: What would you save if your bedroom were on fire?
David: My hard-drive with all my music on it.
