Elegant living room-dining room
Pillars divide the two halves of this space, which was previously several rooms including a kitchen. What’s left is a large space that’s perfect for entertaining, but that isn’t too intimidating. For the festive season the antique chandelier has been dressed with orchid-filled test tubes hung from fishing wire to create a stunning display above the dining table.

Welcoming entrance hall
One floor covering and two paint colours have been used throughout the house to ensure continuity. Here the cool blue tones look great in contrast to the warm natural flooring, and candles glimmer to add a welcoming feel.
Light and airy living area
The lime sofa was bought locally and although the owners had planned to re-cover it in a neutral shade, they changed their mind when he saw how good it looked in situ. Natural flooring is teamed with white walls and large sash windows to keep the space light and airy.
Converted dining room
The converted shed is the official dining room. On cold days the owners puts a kikoy (woven African cloth) on the back of each chair to ensure their guests can wrap up warm! A large round glass dining table looks stunning with the floral centrepieces, while Union Jack cushions add a quirky touch.
Cosy basement kitchen
Warm wooden cabinets and furniture give the kitchen a warm rustic feel. Clay plant pots, chunky kitchenware and stone flooring all add to this country-style feel, while sleek metal appliances add a modern twist.
Warm wood kitchen-diner
In the basement kitchen, a large dining table is dressed with a mint-green table runner to add a shot of colour. Two candelabras and two plant pots create an attractive centrepiece. Matching green dining chairs complete the look.
Pretty guest bedroom
The covers on the headboards are loose so they can be updated as their mood changes. Matching table lamps on matching side tables add a formal air, while pretty linens keep the scheme cosy and welcoming.
Deep blue bathroom
As the bathroom leads off a small, dark landing, the owner put in a door with glass panels to create extra light. A striped blind in matching blue shades adds interest to the window.

Attractive vanity unit
A blue-painted vanity unit provides handy extra storage and matches the rest of the scheme perfectly. A large mirror adds glamour to the scheme and matching wall-mounted lights save space on the bathroom surfaces.

Stylish master bedroom
To make this small room feel larger, mirrors were essential. Not being able to fit one big mirror up the stairs, they had to use three narrower ones, but the effect is just as impressive. Crisp white bedlinen brings a smart hotel-chic touch to the room.
