Tell us about your home and the people who live there 🏡 🐩
I live here with my husband James, my two year old son, Wilfred and our black standard poodle, Brontë.
When we first moved here, it was just James and I. We didn’t know who or what would fill the walls. The poodle arrived a year later and Wilfred arrived a year after that. What was a house full of renovation dust and constant DIY has become a family home full of noise and hilarity.
In 3 words how would you describe the style of your home?
Neutral, Scandi, ‘Us’
What room is your favourite and why?
I would probably have to say our dining room because it connects the whole house and has pretty much ticked all the boxes of what we wanted it to be – homely, welcoming and with a big, beautiful table where we can eat, chat and host family and friends.
Though a close runner-up is our front room because I am obsessed with our open fire. I kind of feel like one flows into the other – you eat and chat in the dining room before going to sit by the fire with a tipple to wind down.
Do you have any tips or advice for creating a home you love? 💕
Ultimately, go with your gut instinct when it comes to picking colours, fabrics and décor. It’s easy to get caught up in what others have done, or what others have chosen, but different styles suit different types of properties. We feel like we’ve done ours in a way that fits our taste but that remains sympathetic to the style of the property.
As we’ve done each room I have basically started with the foundations first: wall colour, flooring and then slowly added to it with furniture and homeware (which frequently gets moved around!). I found going step by step meant I felt less pressure to coordinate things and gave me more time to change my mind as the room started to come together.
