This kitchen had been badly water damaged. We saved what we could and kept things light, bright, airy and fun.

 A room full of amazing old wallpaper that just needed a pop of colour and graphic shapes to bring it bang up to date.

 Combining gold with shades of blue and red gives a vintage feel while keeping the look fresh. Wallpaper by Lorna Syson compliments the handmade feature wall perfectly.

This vintage leather swivel chair echoes the warm shades of orange and brown. The painted lemon yellow table and high gloss white floor keeps things from feeling too retro. The feature wall has been designed and handmade to reflect the wildlife seen from the window.

Fresh green brings colour and light to this dark kitchen, while wood effect wallpaper reflects the existing cabinets and gives warmth and unity to the scheme.

These wall mounted tins hide an ugly cooker switch and add colour and depth. Overlooked artworks have impact and charm when carefully curated.

A rather staid old bed head comes alive when combined with stunning dip dyed velvet. Geometric shapes and bold prints work together to bring this lovely old wallpaper into the 21st century.

These glamourous mirrored tiles bring huge amounts of light to a very dark stairway. Their hexagon shape echo those found on a football and perfectly compliment the handmade, sporting themed wallpaper.

The mustard coloured paneling is part of the original 1970’s décor. We loved it and left it as is.

Handmade geometric cushions sit happily alongside these mismatched vintage club chairs. The elephant was a one off find and echoes the owner’s love of nature and quirky sense of style.

Wallpaper weaving it’s magic here, on furniture and stairs, as well as walls.

Orla Kiely might be over but her iconic Stem print transforms this over sized wardrobe and once fusty old bedroom into someplace stylish and rather chic. To me, Orla still rocks.

An updated and highly patterned dressing table updates this floral scheme.

You’ve got to love a Sunburst. This broken clock shone again when the workings were replaced with a mirror.

These mountain scenes bring a welcome shot of cool blue to a scheme warmed by orange and browns, while a wall full of birds makes a perfect partner to this medly of mid century pattern.

A cluster of cushions soften sharp geometric shapes. Wallpaper makes an effective and surprisingly hardwearing stair runner when given the right treatment.  Bespoke shelves make vintage annuals a fun, interchangeable artwork.

Full of pattern and colour, these spaces feel surprisingly relaxing and peaceful.
