Be inspired by the quirky design and smart use of space in this warehouse, cleverly converted into a laid-back modern home. See inside some of the most beautiful homes with Livingetc and for even more inspiration, visit

The living room is full of vintage furnishings and retro finds, which both complement and soften the distressed walls. Comforts such as underfloor heating mean the space is cosy despite its vast size. Touches such as the Welsh blanket help to add a feminine note.

The owners used as many found and salvaged materials as possible. This beautiful, natural wood wall in the living room is actually made from lath planking, which builders normally throw away.

The owners created a mezzanine to house a bedroom and bathroom, and have cleverly used the space underneath for a cosy snug, home to favourite old chairs and a collection of guitars. Reclaimed wood gives it a cabin feel.
