Take a look around this spacious family home

Take a tour around this spacious family home in North Wales. The former B&B has undergone a dramatic makeover with an extension added and the layout reworked. The look is modern glamour meets vintage chic.

A subtle pink paint has been used to give the exterior of this six-bed Victorian town house character. The owners have reworked the layout and extended to create more living space.

The Christmas wreath is hand-made using artificial ivy from Sia and pretty wooden decorations from Emily Readett-Bayley.

A soothing mix of neutral paint colours and glam accessories make for a welcoming entrance. Prior to the makeover there was an open porch and an inner door so the hall was much smaller and darker.

This kitchen is bespoke and built by a local cabinet maker. The mix of warm wood and sleek black worktops with painted units keeps the look relaxed and informal. A freestanding island is perfect for entertaining as guests can congregate around it.

The owners took down the dividing walls between the old living room, dining area and kitchen and built a single-storey extension at the back of the property for their new kitchen.

A more sophisticated living room at the front of the house is the perfect place to entertain guests, especially at Christmas. A neutral colour scheme has been given a burst of glamour with accessories such as a zebra-print footstool and decorative cushions, while a metallic zebra-print rug is an ultramodern addition.

vintage-style leather sofa works well in this relaxed living room and is pepped up with a colourful and eclectic collection of pretty, patterned cushions. Oversized white paper stars have been hung low over the cofefe table for a dramatic effect.

The bedside lamp has been customised – the owner upcycled an old shade by winding fabric offcuts around the wire structure. Perspex droplets add a glam touch.

This was previously two small boxrooms, but a dividing wall was knocked down to create a spacious bathroom where an indulgent roll-top bath is the main feature, set against a soothing backdrop of pretty, patterned wallpaper. A freestanding ladder makes for a quirky alternative to a standard towel rail.
