This four-bedroom, detached 1960s house in Leeds, West Yorkshire, has been completely refurbished to create a bright and modern family home.
2/11 Living room
The living room has a feature wall painted in a daring shade of dark grey, creating a relaxed gentleman's club feel. The tall fire surround was found at a salvage yard and painted off-white to brighten the room.
Wall painted in Mercury emulsion
3/11 Living room feature wall
The opposite wall in the living room has been painted in a soft off-white to contrast against the dark grey. A collection of framed insect and butterfly prints are displayed in uniform rows above the sofa.
6/11 Dining area
Patterned wallpaper and blinds give the dining area tailored style, while the wooden flooring links it to the kitchen. A large arch floor lamp adds a contemporary touch.
7/11 Main bedroom
The owners chose to use a bold floral wallpaper on a feature wall because it complements the finish of the shimmering starburst mirror.
8/11 En-suite bathroom
9/11 Shower room
The main bathroom has been converted into a smart new shower room, tiled with shimmering glass mosaics with built-in storage alcoves for toiletries.
10/11 Guest bedroom
11/11 Home office
