The owner designed the tulle lamp shade to look like a ballerinas skirt by taking a vintage lamp base and stitching the fabric to the original shade frame.
This Shaker-esque unit, made from reclaimed furniture, helps keep the kitchen organised.
The owner’s bed, which she designed herself, is a striking focal point in her bedroom. She constructed the base from MDF and Portuguese tiles before adding a reclaimed metal frame, which she sometimes drapes with fabric for a softer look.
Paradise Green by Dulux is a good match for this paint colour.
An open-plan bathing area in the bedroom adds a sense of grandeur, with a step up to add an extra sense of occasion and luxury. The white tiling against dark green has a fresh, timeless feel.
The girl’s bedroom is a colourful hideaway, complete with vibrant wallpaper and luxurious bedlinen. Plain fitted wardrobes have been ingeniously covered with padded fabric panels, which softens the hard lines of the storage and are easy to remove and wash.
Even the balcony has been given strong colours and vibrant patterns, creating a welcoming outdoor feel. Gel fires are a brilliant way of adding winter warmth.
