THE PROPERTY A two-storey Victorian red-brick villa with a loft conversion in Hastings, East Sussex.
SPACE Basement utility room, living room, snug, kitchen-diner, studio space, plus 4 bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room.
A decadent gold mirror adds glamour and warmth to the dining room, while a grand piano and oversized vase take centre stage.
The owner of this eclectic villa spends time scouring auction houses for orginal pieces and old paintings. As this reading spot shows, the aim is to fill rooms with colour from top to bottom.
Although its part of the kitchen, the owners have given this end of the room a real dining room style, with rich fabrics and carved accessories. Pink walls add zing and are the perfect back-drop for a mix of accessories. The antique mirror and glittering chandelier add a stylish touch.
The white-painted dining table was bought at an auction for £60.
Unconventional blue-green walls, second-hand artwork and vibrant splashes of orange lift this scheme right out of the ordinary.
The bathroom, with its reproduction roll-top bath and soothing mauve walls, has a nostalgic mood with plenty of Victorian glamour!
