Interiors

As a designer and lover of all things colour, textiles and pattern I can’t avoid being a lover of interior design. My guilty pleasure is interiors magazines, hoards of them, I’m still looking for a bookcase large enough to hold them all.

 

I’ve owned quite a few properties in my time but we have finally found our forever home, a gorgeous Victorian Villa. We moved in December 2011 and boy is this house a labour of love, not to mention a money pit. Think no central heating, barely any hot water, peeling wallpaper (layers of it) and a very antiquated electric system. But as every room is starting from scratch, (literally, stripping back to the original brick) it has meant we can create each room exactly as we want it and I have had free reign to be a little more creative with the finishes.

 

Anyway, all that said, I thought I’d share some of the renovation highlights (and lowlights!) with you, but mostly the lovely finished pictures. Oh, and did I mention I’m married to a builder!

The Family Bathroom

So this beauty used to be a small bathroom with a separate toilet and was finished in October 2015. It will eventually just be my children’s bathroom (2 girls) when I have the luxury of my own ensuite. In the meantime it is currently the only toileting facility in the house (there’s often a queue!) as we have demolished most of downstairs to create an open-plan kitchen, living, diner with lots of big glass doors onto the garden [sigh].
