The kitchen has a 'restaurant' feel to it, mixing pale blues with grey steel fixtures. Open shelving and racks allow easy access to pots and pans.

The unusual spice rack was discovered in Boston; try Lakeland for a similar one. Amtico flooring is practical and easy to clean. The range cooker is Britannia and the units are from IKEA.

In the dining room, an oak refectory table from France is teamed with chairs commissioned in Greece and covered in GP & J Baker's The Paradise Bird for a traditional feel. A Georgian mirror is flanked by a pair of French Art Nouveau candelabras found at an antiques fair in Holland. The Victorian fireplace was found at a reclamation yard, while the corner unit is an old TV cabinet that has been painted for a new lease of life.

With its enormous roll-top bath, the bathroom is a sanctuary. The freestanding vanity unit was designed to give a spa-like feel to the space.

The floor is limestone and the taps are from Lefroy Brooks. To complete the Provencal look, the walls have been treated with Jocasta Innes's Impasto and colourwashed with antique white.
