Michelle's home is quite rustic in style and is packed with upcycled furniture and second-hand buys. This cool dining table was made with the help of a friend out of old scaffolding poles and boards. Turn a wall into a feature with an iconic print like Michelle's map of the world and team with wooden furniture throughout the room to give it warmth.

Michelle found this gorgeous kitchen dresser in a second-hand shop and brought it back to life by painting it and waxing the wooden worktop. Give a country-style dresser added charm by hanging a garland over it or bunting would look great too - then use it to display your favourite accessories.

Michelle knocked down a wall between the kitchen and dining room to create an open-plan layout. Dark slate tiles are a great idea for a kitchen as they are easy to keep clean and contrast against the pale units.
