Restoring this Georgian house to its former glory ate in the owner's budget, so they devised ways to get the classic country look they wanted for less

Moving to a Georgian house in Sheffield sparked a total change for the owner and her husband. ‘We’ve always lived in modern houses with contemporary furniture. Coming here has had a huge impact on my decorating style, from the colours for the walls to the furniture I have picked.’ The house had been neglected and needed complete renovation, including new ceilings, central heating, electrics and plumbing, plus a kitchen and bathrooms. ‘We wanted every bit of it to be sympathetically restored. Luckily, my husband is an architectural technologist, so he wasn’t put off by the job. He set up an office upstairs and managed the project himself.’ Classic furniture, a relaxed colour scheme and pretty decorative details have given this home a timeless sophistication.
