Take a tour around a three-storey Victorian semi

A formerly run-down house has been transformed into a light, bright and stylish family home. See inside some of the most beautiful homes with Livingetc and for even more inspiration, visit housetohome.co.uk

Bi-folding doors on an extension at the back of the house mean the kitchen-diner can become part of the outside space in warm weather. The doors are from Sun Paradise.

Near black is an elegant yet practical choice for a busy hallway. The paint is Off-Black by Farrow & Ball, and the stair runner is from Crucial Trading.

Carefully chosen reproduction mouldings returned the living room to its former glory. The sofa is from The Conran Shop. The lamp is Day Birger et Mikkelsen. The mirror is from Oliver Bonas.

The main bedroom is above the extension and was planned to make the most of the view, with its low, large, window. The throw and cushions are from Designers Guild and the sheepskin is from Graham & Green.

8/8 Bathroom

Clever spatial juggling meant this en suite could be squeezed in alongside a walk-in wardrobe by the main bedroom. The tiles are from Criterion Tiles, and the shower is from Colourwash.
