great British home

26 Comments

I took the Great British Home Quiz and it determined that my home style was Quirky Cool. I was quite pleased with this. I love mixing vintage and contemporary, and love light, airy spaces and vibrant accessories. We are decorating our house in a mid-century modern style so I am trying to keep things simple and bright, but with a retro feel.

The renovations on our first-floor bathroom finished two days ago. I will wait a few seconds for you to 'ooh' and 'ahh'. We bought our 1890s terraced house last year and have been slowly fixing one room at a time. The first-floor bathroom did not have a bathtub, and we wondered if we could even get one to fit. Although the bathroom on the second floor has a bathtub, it was inconvenient to go up and down the stairs with two kids (one a baby then toddler). 

BEFORE
The previous owners renovated the house in the 1970s, which isn't the decade known for the best style, plus they were really big into pine. The first-floor bathroom is small, but made smaller with all of the boxing. We have, amazingly, managed to squeeze in a normal size bathtub, and now have a nice family bathroom. I got a funky bathmat but still need to find a simple shelf, a mid-century mirror (similar to what we have in our hallway) and a cool piece of art. This means I will be hitting some charity and second-hand shops to finish the look.
