October 2016 and @sean_toomey asks โ€œCan you come and smash some walls down with me and Soph in our new home?โ€...โ€๐Ÿ’ฏ% mateโ€ was my immediate response ๐Ÿ”จ This is a picture of Sean (of #renovationproud fame ๐Ÿ˜‰) and me outside the house that many people have watched him renovate. Little did I know that I had already started to fall in love with the house and Sophโ€™s sister @swebbstuff and I would eventually be buying the property from them. This happened in July and we are about to undertake some major renovation work converting the loft into an en-suite bedroom (full shed dormer). The second pic is the loft space we inherited and will be converting. Plans, pics and vids to follow over the coming weeks ๐ŸŽฅ ๐Ÿ“ธ Plus Iโ€™ll share an update to the spaces Sean and Soph created between now and Christmas and what we have done with them. Work commences 7th Jan โœŒ๐Ÿฟ Those chimney breasts tho ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ˜
We just used the whole #Victorian nook for our giant tree this year. Someday weโ€™ll go artificial but not yet... #victorianhouse #christmastree
On a cold blustery day like today ... Watching the beautiful flicker of my tree candle lights , oh how I love them! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—... Nothing more charming then a Victorian Christmas tree!., I feel like a little child , mesmerised by the magical beauty ... How clever we can just plug them in , instead of potentially burning the house down! ๐ŸŽ„ #victorianhouse #victorianchristmas #christmastree #candles

Lying in bed with my trusted guard dog (fighting a cold... I am, that is...not the dog) and getting to decide on exterior paint colors and roof color. This is what I've been waiting for! #bringingbacksligo #victorianhouse #renovations #fredericksburgva #axelvontepaske #decisions #toomanychoices

Okay so this is my new account dedicated purely to the beauty and the beast that is house renovation and post-renovation decoration. Thanks for following ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป. To give you a flavour of the type of work I have done before, here is a before and after of the hallway in my previous home - a 4 bed Victorian property (built in 1890) ๐Ÿ˜ #renovationproud #houserenovation #housereno #homerenovation #styleithappy #victorian #bifolds #edwardianterrace #victorianhouse #periodfeatures #periodproperty #houseextension #terracehouse #home #interiordesign #featurewall #kitchenextension #rooflantern #ourhome #buildingrestoration #restoration #homedesign #lovemyrenovation #kitchenfitting #restorationproject #kitchenstyle #kitchen #myhomevibe #kitcheninspo #howyouhome
Day 15: Garland. A tenuous link- I have no Christmas garland due to works, but you might just make out a โ€˜garlandโ€™ (!) of lights on our dodgy old fence. Thankfully taken out now due to French doors going in sometime soon. Itโ€™s ugly fence match the other side will be going soon too. #myhomethismonth #gardendesign #victorianhome #victorianhouse #renovation #somanyjobstodo !
1 whole year in our house ๐ŸŽ‰ ๐ŸŽŠ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ Canโ€™t believe weโ€™ve been tackling these stairs for a whole year ๐Ÿคฃ They will be finished soon I swear! . . Itโ€™s been a busy year of small changes to the house with minimal budget thanks to also paying for our wedding this year. Weโ€™re hoping that in the next year weโ€™ll be able to get some hired help in so we can start making some bigger changes ๐Ÿ™Œ Big thankyou to everyone who has shared their tips, advice and encouragement along the way. . . #renovating #renovation #houserenovation #refurbishment #homesweethome #myhousethismonth #housetohome #spotlightonmyhome #victorianhouse #victorianterrace #terracedhouse #myhomevibe #cornerofmyhome #howihome #victorianrenovation #edwardianrenovation #edwardianterrace #mygorgeousgaff #walltowallstyle
Our dining room is now Christmas busy. I've had a lovely afternoon & it's going to be a wrench to drag myself out into the stormy night ๐Ÿ˜…have a lovely evening @jl_louiseinman x #wearepartners #create #homesweethome #johnlewisandpartners #homedesignstylist #victorianhouse #christmastree #fireplace #cosy #cosyhome #cat #fire #homedesign
First fire in our house and i am so excited for a cosy Saturday night in watching the Strictly final with a takeaway. (Really hope that @sjdooley wins!) Counting down the days until we finish work for Christmas. This is my favourite time of the year ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŽ…
Radiator cover progressing well. Two panels were made today, two more left to make up then the whole panel joined together and finishing off with an oak top shelf. Finished photo to follow anyone wanting a interior design and renovation carried out DM me. #radiatorcover #interiordesign #periodproperties #diy #victorianhouse @vannairnart
Phew! Ok, making some progress at last. Stairs finished and hall carpet down. Just finished a bit of touch up on some scratches. If you donโ€™t look too closely itโ€™s ok. Even got a tree up outside the bedrooms! Winning!

Next up on the festive black list: Giant inflatable Santaโ€™s & snow men. Words fail me, itโ€™s never ok. Multicoloured lights. Anything other than white or yellow is not ok. So Susan up the street - the red lights are distasteful, take them down. It is not a brothel. Glitter paper. Doesnโ€™t stick, therefore serves no purpose. Does not fulfill its Christmas destiny; to conceal a panic bought gift which is likely to be ill recieved.

It takes a lot to realise sitting by the fire isnโ€™t being lazy. Practicing the art of slow loving today, a morning of@yoga & essential oils followed by a dog walk then a sit by the fire. Thereโ€™s so much I could and โ€˜shouldโ€™ do, but the batteries need recharging and after 18 months of use, now is a great time. Do you have to practice resting too? Happy Saturday folks xxx
A few before and after pics of a refurbishment we recently completed. We have installed turned newel posts and spindles finished with acorns which gives it an original look but the contrast in colour gives it a contemporary feel. froudconstructionl.com Email. froudconstruction@gmail.com #froudconstruction #carpenter #carpentry #stairs #woodwork #balustrade #refurbishment #victorianhouse
Wrap around porch goals! My grandmother restored this 12,450sf home built in 1897. Tag a friend who would love this!
We have our first visitors in the new lounge! My family are up from the South to visit for the weekend. Finally it feels lived in (excuse the mess). The fire is going and the chandelier is up. Post Christmas Market cuppa and football update for the boys and coffee and chocs for the ladies. . . . #home #house #victorianterrace #victorianhouse #renovation #diy #victorianterracerenovation #cleaning #renovating #ourfirsthome #redesign #modernising #victorian #interior #project #lounge #terracedhouse #terracerenovation #terrace #terracehouse #workinprogress #decor #decorating #christmas #Xmas #family #fireplace
Making quick work of ornate cornicing the low pressure spraying from the hvlp is ideal for intricate work also next to no over spray means I don't need to suit up. This was a freshen up, we do also offer full paint removal and cornice revival to bring back the glorious detail of your cornices. #cornice #paintersofinstagram #paintlife #paint #puredecs #pro #gracosprayer #hvlp #interiordesign #victorianhouse #decorating #interiordesign #bristol #bedminster
How good are these skirtings looking! Fly AF! Sanded, primed and 2 coats of satinwood later and we can nearly have a functional living room ๐Ÿฅณ Iโ€™m also a big fan of a wee mid century classic so the pared-back decor in here should make their babalicious legs stand out . . #glasgowstyle #glasgowlife #hyggehome #woodburner #victorianhome #hygge #woodburnerstove #midcenturystyle #reno #midcenturyhome #woodburnerlove #victorianarchitecture #homerenovation #myhomestyle #hyggelife #victorianhouse #woodburnersofinstagram #midcentury #howihome #myhyggehome #victorianera #victorian #renovation
Day 15 #myhousethismonth โ€ข Garland โ€ข @littlehouseinlondon #homediarydaily โ€ข itโ€™s a wrap โ€ข @homediarydaily @homeattheheart @iconic_lights #ahouseindays โ€ข Loving Cupful โ€ข @hardcastletowers @alfredandtheboy @susieblues_rooms @b_a_mintage @greenflamingo_anna My stair garland is all cut from my garden this year and as the staircase is new Iโ€™m not allowed to nail or pin anything to it ๐Ÿ˜ฑ so itโ€™s all wrapped around the spindles with garden twine . So tonight is my friend Debbies soirรฉe where a gang of mature adults will go back to acting like the young whipper snappers we all were when we first became friends , we will have fun and frolics given by the loving cupful because Debbie is always loving to all and has worked so hard to create the perfect evening for all our benefits. I donโ€™t even need to turn up to know she will have pulled all the stops out .

P R O G R E S S. Tiles are down in the hallway and we have gone for light grey grout due to this being a high footfall area. The stairs are being prepped for painting and a runner (likely to be grey herringbone style carpet). We are now trying to choose wall paint colour and I think we should paint the inside of the front door with a new colour too (probably grey- blue colour spectrum)! Any suggestions/ recommendations? We donโ€™t get much natural light in our hallway so want things to feel bright where possible โญ๏ธ. #hallway #hallwaydecor #victorianhouse #encaustictiles #cementtiles #renovationproblems #choosingpaintissohard #greyinterior #monochromeinterior #patternedtiles #christmaswreath #myhousethismonth #whitewalls #whiteinterior #interiorgoals #houserenovation #diy #renovationneverends

CEILING UP// โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”-Today we put up the last piece of ceiling. A feathered edge moisture resistant plaster board, we cut to size and lifted into place with the help of a wood support we build. It looks like it happened really fast but this was a good 20mins of holding the weight with our backs and neck, need a good stretch out now. Still need to fill and plaster it. You can see the whole process in our stories. โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€” #diyer #diy4all #doerupper #plaster #victorian #victorianhome #victorianhouse #victorianterrace #myhousethismonth #myhousebeautiful #myhome #restoran #renovating #renovation #kitchendecor #kitchendesign #kitchenremodel #kitchen #exposedbrick

Late post for me today as Iโ€™m extremely hungover ๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ I did this little creation a while back as had been after a certain size sideboard for my bedroom for a while. I picked up this sideboard from @the_bhf for ยฃ50!! It was pretty ugly but the dimensions were spot on, so i had to have it. Itโ€™s lovely now itโ€™s been painted a navy blue, and it houses my wonderful pink and cream roses from @lindfieldandco. Itโ€™s perfect ๐Ÿ˜!

Front porch restored this past summer. All original 1890 gingerbread wood work. That one spindle though... Why why why? #thisoldhouse #victorianhouse

@sebastian.h.w putting the first coat of Waterlox on the mantle. We love this oil finish for its low luster and surface protection. Itโ€™s so easy to apply and levels out effortlessly. #moderncraftsman #keepcraftalive #victorianhouse #mantle #thisoldhouse #useprotection
One of the famous โ€œpainted ladiesโ€ of Lafayette Square in St. Louis, Missouri.

HALLWAY PLANNING โ€ข We went dark in the hallways and landings, which go right up to the second floor of the house, a while back. We used a @dowsingandreynolds colour called Spruce It Up. It's a beautifully dark mossy green. It's taken a while for me to find the perfect large round mirror, which I'm then working all the art around. I've been collecting and buying prints to go onto the ground floor section of the hallway...and now the mirror is finally up (photo to come on my Story), I can finally figure out what I want to go up where ๐Ÿ’ƒ Getting theeeeerrrrrre. Slowly ๐Ÿ˜‚ . . Note to self: remember the carpet on the bottom stair needs fixing on again! ๐Ÿ™ˆ
Managed to get the log fire sorted for Christmas!!

The view as I walk out of our bedroom. Not too shabby. We've worked hard to get this entry and stairway back to it's original glory. Love that we were able to save some of the wallpaper and the inlay detail on the floor just really pops with the colors. I have to assume the wall over the entry (which is our HUGE closet) was built on later, as the post has been cut randomly in half at the wall.

We have 2 new windows in the kitchen and a new landing window, how exciting! When we bought the house, the kitchen had 2 very different sized windows (swipe for photo), so we cut one hole bigger to make them the same size. These were actually fitted 2 weeks ago but we have been so busy we havenโ€™t had chance to go round and see them properly in the daylight! Although Iโ€™m super happy with them, it is such a shame to lose the original sash windows, they were beautiful. #newwindows #upvc #upvcwindows #renovation #renovationproject #houserenovation #firsttimebuyers #victorianhouse #victorianterrace #terracehouse #housetohome #housetohomebeautiful #kitchendecor #galleykitchen #victorianlife #1910 #victorianhouse

So our oven arrived today... what do you think? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ If youโ€™ve seen my stories in the past youโ€™ll be familiar with my frankly unhealthy obsession with this oven, the Samsung Chef Collection WiFi enabled bad-ass, king of kitchens... (because why wouldnโ€™t you enable your oven with WiFi ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆ) I stumbled across it via a targeted ad (they know me so well) and the amazingly advanced functionality of it won my heart, I mean it has a โ€œdehydrationโ€ setting people! I can make homemade healthy veggie crisps, whether I actually do is a different story, but the option is there. Anyway, needless to say this is just another stumble down the long ass path that has been our renovation. In the grand scheme of things Iโ€™m not bothered (so much worse has happened) but how bloody annoying! Hereโ€™s hoping your Saturdays are a tad less inconvenient ๐Ÿ˜‚ . . . . . . . #newhome #renovation #interiordesign #property #floor #myhome #interiorinspiration #decor #decorating #house #housedecor #houserenovation #victorian #victorianhouse #renovationproject #dressingroom #design #home #homedecor #homemade #interiors #DIY #decorating #beforeandafter #before
