Type of home: Victorian end terrace house
Years lived in: 6 years, owned
Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: We live in an Edwardian end terrace that was built in 1910. When we viewed the house for the first time we knew that it was for us even before we walked in the door. Since moving in, we have designed and decorated every room.
We have also recently had a kitchen extra built during the COVID-19 crisis, which has made things more difficult during the process but we now are even more grateful for it. Since moving in we have had two children and love our family home that we have made.
Our home is quite calm and relaxing but with pops of color, which is a true reflection of our personalities. The color theme is blues, greens, and grays with some color thrown in for fun.
Describe your home’s style in 5 words or less: Traditional. Colorful. Period. Bold.
What is your favorite room and why? It has to be our new kitchen. It took six months to plan and then six months to build (with a nine-week COVID break in the middle). This room has completely [improved] how we live and it really is the heart of the home.
What’s the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? The last thing we bought was the breakfast bar stools. It’s so nice to now have this space functioning better and the kids love sitting there eating their breakfast before school.
Any advice for creating a home you love? Go with your gut and be brave. All of our bravest decisions have been our best ones!
