The bay windows at the front of this traditional Edwardian terrace have been decorated with window film for privacy.
2/9 Mid-century living room
This Edwardian room has been given an Arts and Crafts feel using Setting Plaster paint by Farrow & Ball on the walls and curtains in Lily Leaf fabric. Mid-century touches include vintage Ercol coffee tables and cushions covered in Hedgerow and Kensal Rising by St Judes Fabrics.
3/9 Retro reading spot
A cosy nook was created as a place to read a book or listen to music in. A reproduction vintage-style phone that has modern, push button features sits on an original Ercol nest of tables.
4/9 White gloss kitchen
Kitchen units in a high white gloss finish give a clean, modern look. Handmade Valencia tiles add a splash of colour, while an original 1960s kettle, traditional scales and a polka dot serving dish add vintage appeal.
5/9 Mid-century dining room
The mid-century feel is created with a pine table from a second-hand shop complemented by retro dining chairs and a seagrass rug.
6/9 Vintage bedroom
An original Ercol sofa from a second-hand shop and curtains made up in Michaelmas Daisy curtain fabric set the scene for the master bedroom's period style. The bed in a similar wood to the sofa completes the look.
