Wise Living has created a series of images depicting how famous figures from British history’s living rooms might look today, including Florence Nightingale

Each of the series of images have references to significant objects or possessions associated with each figure.

The Florence Nightingale image has references to Florence’s lantern, after she became known as ‘the lady with the lamp’ during her work at barracks in Scutari. Also perched upon her chair in the image is Athena, Florence’s beloved pet owl she rescued while in Greece.

Anne Malone, head of lettings at Wise Living, said: “We decided to name all our homes after historic British figures to recognise their impact on British culture.

"We build quality rental properties and give people the opportunity to put their own stamp on their new home, enabling them to decorate and furnish to suit their own style.

"Through the images we have created, we wanted to recognise that and pay tribute to their impact on culture, science and medical practices across the world.”
