Step inside this Victorian flat in Surrey

10 images

The owner, a marketing assistant, bought this one-bedroom Victorian flat in Surrey in 2013. The property was originally the site of a hospital, but was transformed into a residential area around 20 years ago.

Fortunately the building had been well maintained over the years, so no major structural work was needed. The owner fell in love with the flat’s high ceilings and beautiful period details. ‘I knew it was exactly what I was looking for,’ she says. ‘It was in the perfect location, which has good links to London and the countryside and it’s an area with a lovely family-friendly feel.’

But the flat was a typical bachelor pad and the decor wasn’t to her taste so she got to work using crafty upcycling, pretty styling and colour shots to bring bags of personality to her home.
