Ha, spider plants in bathrooms reminds me of my youth!

Great project and you have a great eye as well (I hope you don't mind if I steal that ski wall paper idea...).

I like how you're using the wc boxing as a shelf for the shower. I take it it's tiled on the shower side? Do you have any issues with the wc face of the boxing getting wet?

I look forward to seeing how the rest of pans out.

Hi there, love the work you have done, like the bravery with some of the choices! Has really paid off, I’m with you, bit different from the norm where possible.

Mind me asking what type of sink that is you have in your new bathroom? What’s it made from? Possibly a long to where you got it?

Lovely clean shape and thin side wall, I really like that! Oh and the rest :-)

Thanks! Love a spider plant, nearly impossible to kill!

Yep it’s tiled on the shower edge, the front gets wet from time to time we have used bathroom paint so it’s mould resistant so nothing to worry about!

Hi thanks! The sink is from porcelanosa we had it for a year or so before fitting I think they do something similar in this years range.

We searched for ages to find something that would fit the size!

Guest Bedroom part 2

As per my last post you have seen the before pics to the room. It followed the same same theme as the rest of the house, un loved and a lack of any individuality!

This room ultimately is going to be a guest room but we will live in it for a bit until the next phase is completed working to the master suite (which will be one of the last things we do is finished)

As with the "blue room" (this is above) it faces west and is quite a dark space but is dominated by the big bay overlooking a main road!

We wanted something guests would look forward to staying in that was not reminiscent of a standard hotel style guest room but more luxury boutique

I don't have a picture of the before shots on the floor but once we had sanded the floorboards back they were a bit of a mismatch and 2 / 3 varying shades of pine!

The decision was made not have carpet (which we generally don't like but as Mick Jagger once said, Paint it black (which was looped whilst we were doing this to my wife annoyance!





What does any guest love when staying somewhere? . . . . Thats right folks a 4 Poster Bed!

This was a bargain off Maisons Du Monde (circa 350) plus slats (which we got from Ikea as it was a Euro King)



Having never been a fan of wallpaper we seem to be embracing it in this house and we were recommended this one:



The print was from a 1800's house in London.



We loved the colours and it matched the black flooring gradually fading to a lighter grey at the top.

Another must for this room was to be adding another ceiling rose and something that I have wanted for a while in a property, A Vita Eos shade (slightly arty pic). As the light was sitting above the cross beam of the bed we needed to swag it across using some silver braided cable and a custom-made porcelain rose adaptor. (this pic also shows that we painted the coving black to match the floor)



As with all these room renovations I get loads of photos early on then nothing until the room is complete.









I have no idea on the final budget for this room, I chose not to (and still haven't) look up the total cost of the wall paper.

Big hats off to Karen Knox @ making spaces (google it) who is working as our designer on this project who has brought everything together from sourcing some of the furniture to cool little details like painting the door jams to match the highlights of the room (something that we would never think of!) and to help us make the bold decisions!

You have great taste and, more importantly, the guts to go with it. I always liked harry’s London house but this has potential to beat it. Looking forward to the updates.

Yep, was featured on Houzz, one of those rooms you think is so good it has to be a room set and or unlivable. Quite heartened to know it is real. It is stunning. Link

Apologies to OP for slightly stalkerish linking paperbag

Already beaten! Lady F wouldn't let me fly my geometric wallpaper and inky bedroom flag, sadly. We ended up a bit more traditional. However, I am angling for a very similar wallpaper in our as yet unstyled master bedroom, where the colours will be pink, black and brass highlights.

OP. you can see our house below (some finished pics at p79/80) Victorian, rather than Edwardian, but looks a similar size. Wish I had been as bold as you on the decor front, and with several rooms left to decorate, I may still have some flair left in me...I shall be using this thread to convince Lady F to go big on the patterns!

That’s properly stylish, very nice! My refurb is feeling decidedly dull and underwhelming all of a sudden! biggrin

Thanks all for the kind words!

Lots of hard work went into this

Harry I have watched your renovation since the start and love the building and what you have done to it!

We no longer use this room as ours but the room is used frequently by friends and family when they come and stay

Actually it’s currently a makeshift kitchen as the big structural piece of the renovation is well under way ( updates will come on this)!

If grand designs has taught me anything, doing renovation works is a sure fire way to get pregnant!

This moves us swiftly onto the Nursery !




This started life as the previous owners study and it was going to be our home office but we were over the moon having to build a nursery instead!

we don't have tonnes of photos the development of the room, but to be honest there wasn't a lot we had to do.

Main things were:

- Add in a few plug sockets (we ended up rewiring the whole floor but that will be in a different post)
- Add a radiator (this rom did not have one)
- New skirting board
- Paint
- Carpet

We wanted to add a creative splash into this room and we love the mountains so created the below!











Just a short post today, more on the other rooms on this floor later!

Loving everything you are doing OP

We are moving soon and my wife is much bolder when it comes to decorating/style than I am, she has all these ideas about colour which make me nervous but this and Harrys thread help convince me done well it can be much much better than normal dreary stuff

I'd just like to say that I think your house is really very stylish.
The renovations and decor are truly top notch. *doffs cap*

I look forward to your next updates!

We also want a mountain theme for the baby's nursery, when we get back in May (from the mountains!). Watching this with even more interest!
