Fashion House

Home Tour: Part Two


Dining/Living room and a little bit of the outside.

Again, we didn’t do major reno. We bricked up the one wall in the lounge, as it was a random old entrance hall but it was mostly fixing up cracks, painting and changing light fixtures. We also decided to change the very yellow varnished wooden floor to a light white wooden look. If you remember I was quite set on an all white house, but i’m so happy we went with greys for the walls in the end. It makes the white pressed ceilings and the floors pop.

We’re still planning to change a few things, get cooler lounge lights and put some art on the walls but i’m pretty happy we’ve got it to this stage from what it was. I unfortunately didn’t take proper before shots, so these are few random snap shots just to show the progression.



*excuse the christmas decor.

Dylan built this wooden tv mount. It saves space, hides the ugly wires and adds some texture to the room.

(Candle holders from Dylan’s Gran, and some pretty old school twizzler candles I found in a dusty old shop)

    Hi Emma, I love the color you used on your inside walls. I went to the hardware store and they have 2 off shore colors on their system… The one is called off shore 48 (no blue added) and the other is called architectural off shore gr-y03 ( blue added). Which one did you use????

      Sho i’m not actually sure! At the time I don’t think there were two options – I would say no blue added!
