Hi all, and welcome to The Decorator.
This is the journey of a 1990s end terrace cottage, in a nice village just outside of Leeds.
Here, you’ll see how it’s gone – and is still going – from a dated, wallpaper-heavy home to a modern, comfortable nest.
In that nest is me, Alex, my husband Paul, and our cat, Boris.
Although I work in communications, I’ve always been interested in interior design and have loved putting our own stamp on our home. Our budget isn’t massive so there’s a fair amount of planning and daydreaming before actually starting work, but I hope along the way it helps you to find a few home ideas, new techniques and inspiration.
- Maybe you’re planning a kitchen extension?
- Decorating the bathroom on a budget?
- Or need to up-sex your bedroom?
If you’re quite alright on all counts, then maybe in among the home chat, I can just help you decide where to eat on Saturday.
Enjoy! I’d love to hear your thoughts.
