This two-bedroom, semi-detached Edwardian house in Brentwood, Essex, has an airy feel inside.
2/11 Neutral living room
This neutral scheme has understated elegance but still feels inviting, with its large sofa piled up with lots of cushions and throws. A fireplace filled with dried-out logs adds to the cosy feel.
3/11 Elegant dining room
Vintage style furniture and accessories create a timeless scheme in the dining room. The owners had a closed-up doorway turned into a built-in shelving unit. Traditional panelling on the walls lends a New-England feel throughout the downstairs.
4/11 Shaker kitchen
White units help to keep this small area feeling light and airy. Every space has been used to maximise on storage potential. The wooden worktops soften the look and give it a country feel, in keeping with the style of the rest of the house.
5/11 White country kitchen
The kitchen flooring is a resin stone carpet, which is tough and easy to keep clean perfect for dog owners. The owners kept the walls and the units white to help the small kitchen feel as spacious as possible.
6/11 Classic utility area
The owners removed a downstairs bathroom and reconfigured the kitchen into an L-shape, creating space for a utility area for sorting laundry.
7/11 Serene living room
The window seat makes the most of the extra space created by the bay window and provides additional seating. Shutters complete the traditional scheme.
8/11 Classic living area
A radiator is hidden behind a wooden cover, which creates another area to display nautical accessories. The upholstered armchair and matching footstool add to the country-style look.
9/11 French-inspired bedroom
A beautiful upholstered bed is the main focus of the bedroom. The muted colour palette on the walls and floor blends in with the neutral upholstery.
10/11 White and grey bedroom
11/11 Country style bathroom
The bathroom is a good place to try out a slightly different look. Here, bare brickwork makes for an eye-catching feature above the roll-top bath.
