Utilise storage space, like Alix, by having shelving fitted into alcoves to show off accessories, books and pictures. The built-in wooden units match the fireplace and coffee table to give a sense of cohension, while bright cushions dress up a dark-grey sofa.
Alix transformed this Victorian four-bedroom, end-of-terrace house with vintage finds, modern pieces and the restoration of original features.
