The kitchen was tucked away at the back of the house, but Lara opened up the space to create a large kitchen-diner.

Lara asked her dad to mix up the lovely warm mustard emulsion paint in the kitchen-diner. She got the idea of the wall display from a magazine and created it using picture frames.

The rocking chair in Lara's living room belonged to her husband's grandmother. She had it reupholstered in a fab striped fabric, which adds a hit of colour against the grey walls. Lara found the retro coffee table on Gumtree.

The bathroom in Lara's home needed some plumbing work, which meant she got to redecorate it exactly how she wanted, with practical travertine flooring and brick-style wall tiles.

Lara loved this Victorian end-of-terrace house when she first saw it. Although it was habitable, the interior needed quite a lot of work to update it.
