At Home With Christa @lifeatlynchgreen

This week we are at home with Christa, the lovely lady behind the popular Instagram account @lifeatlynchgreen. 

Christa shares her beautiful country cottage along with snippets from her daily life and fashion. Christa's insta account is stunning and she is just about to embark on a fabulous looking new-build project which is definitely worth keeping an eye on.


Tell us a bit about you

Christa Ellis at Home

Previously worked in a model agency as head of recruitment. Now I'm just about to project manage a new build. I have lived in my little cottage in Norfolk for almost 8 years. I am just 5 miles from the city centre and close to main routes out of Norfolk.


Tell us about your home

country cottage in Norfolk

The cottage was built in 1820. It has 3 bedrooms, 3 receptions, two bathrooms, utility and cottage garden


How would you describe your home? 

quirky country home decor

I love anything old and quirky... so a mixture of modern country and real antiques. My partner Cameron and I are always on the lookout for that special piece.


Which is your favourite room in the house?

kitchen and sunroom opening onto garden

The Kitchen and sunroom; it’s a place where we all gather the most. Doors open to the garden...its the reason I bought the house.


How does your home reflect any passions or interests that you have?

My garden has become my passion. A saviour through lockdown.


What are your favourite items in the home?

My donkey painting by Caroline Walker. I just love it because it has a real story. Courgette was rescued working beach donkey. Now living her best life on a farm in Cornwall along with her friends...also named after vegetables.


When you moved into your house was it the finished article or was it a project?

It just needed cosmetic updates.


Have you done any renovation?


I had a new kitchen, new floors, decorated throughout. I had a new oak porch erected outside and found a second hand summerhouse on FB.


Have you had any DIY or styling disasters?

Thankfully not.


What is your top home styling tip?

colour accents in a country cottage

Pick 3 colours and stick to those tones throughout. You can add colour with soft furnishings


Is there anything in your home that you couldn’t live without?

My utility room.


They say that a every home tells visitors a story about who lives there. What do you think your home says about you?
