hree children under the age
of 10 makes for an eventful
and excitable festive season
in the Feely household.
?My husband Lochlin and
I just about manage to keep them at bay
on Christmas morning until we?ve had at
least one cup of tea,? Melanie laughs.
The couple?s lovely Berkshire property
has hosted five festive celebrations already,
but last year?s was especially memorable, as
all of the house renovations, including a
kitchen-diner extension, had finally been
completed. Their home is unrecognisable
from its Nineties-build beginnings ? and a
good thing too, as Melanie was less than
impressed with the current decor to buy it
in the first place. ?We put our old home on
the market and it sold really quickly, which
immediately threw me into a panic,? she
recalls. ?I?d already discounted this property
on Rightmove as it seemed wrong for us:
the rooms were dingy and didn?t link
together well. Out of desperation, I looked
online again and realised it might have
more to it than the photos were letting on.?
Set down a quiet, private road, but also
close to all of Maidenhead?s amenities, on
further investigation, the detached house
revealed itself to be a treasure trove of
unrealised potential. ?Due to the split-level
structure, the exterior seemed really tiny in
comparison with the space inside, which
was over 4,000 square feet,? she explains.
?While it did need a considerable amount
of modernisation, we just knew it had the
bones of a fantastic family home. So much
so, in fact, that I found it really hard not to
get too excited during the viewing and
completely ruin our negotiating skills!?
Keys in hand, the couple was desperate
to start renovating, especially as Melanie is
an interior designer. Together they have
redesigned several properties, but the pair
knew they just had one chance to create

WOW FACTOR
Rebuilding the
fireplace gave the
large living room
structure and
a natural focus
their forever family home. ?I was making
plans for a kitchen extension even before
we moved,? Melanie says. ?I daydreamed
about watching our children playing in the
garden while I prepared lunch at an island.
However, I had to rein myself in: I knew
our needs would constantly change as the
children grew up. So we decided to live in
the house to get to grips with what worked,
what didn?t, and also how we could make
long-term improvements for the future.?
In fact, Melanie and Lochlin spent five
invaluable years planning the redesign.
Building work aside, there were plenty
of decorating decisions to be made, and
one of the first areas up for discussion was
the living room at the front of the house.
?Initially, we did think about moving the
kitchen here,? Melanie says, ?but, after a
few months, it was clear that it needed
to be connected to the outside, so I was
thrilled that my original dream survived!?
An ornate fire surround, installed by the
couple themselves, is the impressive focal
point, which also sets the tone for the
room?s elegant, grown-up atmosphere.

ONE SIMPLE CHANGE
Love Melanie?s hotel-style
living room? An easy swap to
give your home a boutique feel
is to replace pine storage with
Venetian-style mirrored
sideboards. Melanie?s are from
Oak Furniture House and
cost �030 each, but if that
stretches your budget too far,
Choice Furniture Superstore?s
Argente sideboard by Hill
Interiors, priced at �1, is a
competitive alternative. Hang
Alexander & Pearl?s Venetian
mirror, �7, then add candles
inside hurricane vases and
mirrored photo frames. For
a more formal look, style
everything symmetrically and
anchor the ends with a pair
of table lamps. And, if you
have the space, take it one
step further and place another
sideboard with similar styling
on the other side of your
wall or fireplace ? just as
Melanie has done to great
effect in her living room.
to draw every element together. ?As the
room is so large,? Melanie says, ?we decided
to divide it into two areas ? a luxury hotel
vibe one side, and a more relaxed family
space at the other end where we all sit
together and watch TV. It means we can
get the best possible use of both worlds.?
Next on the renovations list were the
bathrooms and bedrooms ? including a
sumptuous master which continues the
boutique feel of the living area. ?I was
delighted to get rid of the salmon-pink
walls and royal-blue tiles in our en suite,?
Melanie grins. Floor-to-ceiling marble
tiles, a sleek freestanding bath and chrome
fittings are now in their place. ?We decided
to go for a calm, bright feel, with simple
furnishings and a restricted palette,? she
adds. ?All the interest comes from pattern
and texture, rather than colour, which is in
stark contrast to the spare room, where it?s
dark and cocooning.? In Finbar?s room,
meanwhile, Melanie?s creative skills come
to the fore, as she designed a lovely moon
mural complete with a blackboard night
sky for her eldest son. ?It?s not only fun,
but it also encourages his artistic side,? she
explains. ?The monochrome theme is also
a bonus as it has longevity ? it?s easy and
inexpensive to change the look and style
with colourful bed linen or throws.?
Finally, five years after moving in, the
time had come for Melanie?s long-awaited
kitchen transformation to begin. ?This was
the pinnacle of the whole renovation,? she
explains, ?and we knew exactly what we
wanted to achieve and how it would work
for us as a family.? The couple decided to
move the kitchen into the dining room
and extend the space out into the garden
with a wraparound L-shaped orangery
extension ? ?It?s more in-keeping with the
style of the house than a modern bi-fold
design,? Melanie adds. Having overseen
a similar project in a previous house, she
wasn?t fazed by the upheaval, especially as
she had learned a particular trick. ?Being
able to use our old kitchen while the new
one was being built had its advantages in
a busy house with three kids,? she says. ?It
then became a separate dining room when
all of the extension work was completed.?
Melanie?s meticulous research should
have ensured a no-nonsense build, but
even the best-laid plans can unravel. ?Part
of the orangery design included two large
roof lanterns to inject as much light as
possible into the kitchen, which is set
quite far back from the garden,? she says.
?However, when one lantern arrived, the
builders realised it was the wrong size and
had to send it back to be remade. It was
far from the best news to hear while we

HOLIDAY STAY
In the guest bedroom,
friends and family enjoy
an enveloping scheme
were on our summer holiday,? she winces.
Thankfully, the kitchen design itself was
straightforward, as there was only ever
one option in Melanie?s mind: handmade
cabinetry from deVOL. ?My Pinterest
board was bursting with so many of its
fabulous kitchens,? she says, ?and after
visiting the Clerkenwell showroom, there
was no turning
back. The quality of
the workmanship
is incredible, and
I love that they
combine classic
and modern design,
but at the same
time, everything is
built for family life.?
One of the
deVOL kitchen
designs that
Melanie had spotted online featured
herringbone parquet flooring and she
was keen to replicate this look in her
extension. ?It worked well with the navy
units, which was the colour I wanted from
the start,? she says. ?We ended up carrying
the parquet all the way through into the
hall and the new dining room, which really
helped connect the extension into the rest
of the house, giving it a uniform style.?
With a large dining table installed in
the kitchen ? under a correctly-sized
lantern ? the separate dining room is now
used for special occasions and also doubles
as Melanie?s office. ?We wanted it to be
an intimate space that felt totally different
to the extension, yet
one that didn?t stick
out like a sore thumb,?
she explains. The result
is an exquisite wall of
panelling in rich navy,
referencing the kitchen
units, and French-style
upholstered chairs,
which draw on the
living-room?s elegant
aesthetic. ?The dining
set was previously
owned by Lochlin?s father, which I then
upcycled, along with the cabinet, a brilliant
bargain find at a local thrift store. These
pieces suit the room perfectly now and
rolling up my sleeves helped to offset the
overall cost of the kitchen as well.?

and Lochlin have finished their cups of

centrepiece of the dinner table,? Melanie
explains, ?and to ramp up the opulence,
I?ve bedecked our Christmas tree in
luxurious copper and gold ? all from
Sainsbury?s.? And as this entire house
has been carefully designed for the Feely
family, it comes as little surprise that they
apply the same principle to their festive
food:?Christmas pudding never gets eaten
in this household, so it?s yummy pavlova
all the way for dessert here,? she beams.
The beginning of a new year is always a
time to pause and reflect, and looking back
over their renovation journey, Melanie and
Lochlin know that it was all was worth the
wait. ?The more work we undertook, the
more that this ugly duckling house started
to feel like a family home,? she recalls. ?And
now that it?s all complete, all of the stresses
and frustrations that we encountered along
the way have paled into insignificance. We
have been able to bring our vision to life
and we?ll definitely love living here for
many, many Christmases to come.?

T
he three-hour round trip
to her London office was
starting to take its toll on
Kate Selvaratnam and she
knew that something had
to give. ?My partner Phil and I started
looking for a new home in the next town
along, as it had much better transport
links,? she explains. Luckily, the search
didn?t take long: ?As soon as I saw this
Victorian property, a two-minute walk
from the station, I knew it was perfect,?
she adds. ?Being able to shave an hour off
my commute would be life-changing, and
we could take a leap up the property ladder
from our two-bed flat to a three-bed semi.?
Although the house was in turnkey
condition, the kitchen wasn?t to Kate?s
taste. ?The previous homeowners had a
real thing for cream and brown,? she says.
?The pendant lamps were in an odd
position as well: the space always felt
gloomy, and if you were preparing food
on the worktop, you couldn?t see what you
were doing!? With its bright turquoise wall
also being a bugbear, a renovation of this
room rose to the top of the priorities list.
Kate already knew the look she was
after, having been inspired by a magazine
feature three years ago. ?It was a gorgeous
Shaker-style scheme with navy cabinets,
white tiled splashbacks and had a Scandi
vibe,? she explains. However, it was hard to
ignore the fact that the existing kitchen

K I T C H E N M A K E O V E R I Budget revamp
was in great condition and didn?t need
replacing, especially as the couple were
on a tight budget. ?It?s just a few years old
and had all-new appliances, a butler sink
and solid-wood worktops,? she says.?We
were also delighted to have 22 cupboards,
as we only had four in our old flat.?
Kate?s solution was ingenious: she asked
Onestop Refinishers to professionally
spray-paint the units in her dreamed-of
navy for just �100 ? a fraction of what
it would cost to redesign the space. ?The
company did all the work on-site in two
days,? she says, ?and colour-matched the
shade to Farrow & Ball?s hague blue. The
finish is immaculate: anyone would think
we?d bought a brand new kitchen.?
Inexpensive metro wall tiles and lino
flooring, both white and edged with grey
grout, complete the room? s industrialinspired look. Also, a multi-directional
light fitting makes chopping vegetables in
the dark a thing of the past. Kate then
accessorised the space with one-off finds,
such as the retro number nine sign from
Spitalfields market in London. Phil had
the great idea of adding vintage scales to
the scheme: ?Naturally, I wasted no time
tracking one down on eBay,? laughs Kate.
Looking back on her clever kitchen
revamp, Kate shares the valuable lessons
she learned. ?Leaving time between each
job allowed for overrunning and avoided
any holdups,? she says. ?All I?d now do
differently is not to have paid a carpenter
to turn a hole, previously a window, into
another cupboard. We didn?t need it; we
should have just plastered over it.?
Kate?s gorgeous Scandi-meets-industrial
scheme is a world away from the dated
look of the original space ? a feat made
all the more inspirational by the fact that
no fundamental changes have been made
to the room. It just goes to show how
much of a difference you can make on a
modest budget. ?Some of our family and
friends were concerned that we were
turning a cream kitchen navy, given how
dark the room felt before,? Kate recalls.
?But since we?ve sorted the lighting and
introduced lots of white, everyone has
commented on how much brighter and
bigger it feels. I?ve dreamed of this look for
so long ? I?m absolutely over the moon.?

T
aking on a huge renovation
project that involved gutting,
extending and redecorating,
Charlotte Steen knew that
the kitchen would be one of
the most important parts of the redesign:
?Nothing had been updated in years, but we
could see the potential the house offered.?
Located on a corner plot with a lovely
garden and in a good location, Charlotte
had often walked past this Victorian
property, so she was thrilled when it came
on the market and was able to secure it.
?The kitchen was much smaller than it is
now,? she recalls. ?It wasn?t suited to modern
living, so it required a complete rethink.?
Charlotte and husband Euan worked out
that they would be able to extend out to
the side, right up to the pavement, and
fill in a passageway, creating space for
a pantry. ?We were advised to check the
planning requirements when extending,
with reference to the windows? positioning,
as we didn?t want them to be right by the
street,? she adds. ?Roof lights were a better

Charlotte and Euan also decided to
extend slightly out the back, with access
onto the patio area in the garden. It made
sense to put in doors across the back of the
kitchen, so they ended up with a large
rectangular room. Once the main building
work was finished, the floor was replaced:
?From the start, I wanted a painted floor,?

K I T C H E N M A K E O V E R I Modern country
VINTAGE ELEMENT
A distressed-look dresser
brings a country feel
to the contemporary
open-plan kitchen
Charlotte explains, ?so we opted for basic
floorboards rather than expensive oak, as
they weren?t going to be a feature. With
the white painted finish, the flooring also
brightens up the space and the direction
of the boards leads the eye to the garden.?
The island was an essential addition, not
only for extra storage, making up for a lack
of wall-mounted units, but also for more
worktop space. With a subtly contrasting
coloured finish on the doors, it now acts as
the hub of the room. And fortuitously, the
discovery of a walled-in chimney breast
early on in the building work meant they
had more space to fit in a fridge-freezer.
Bringing her cooker, dining table and
chairs with her, Charlotte knew she would
have to fit the kitchen-diner around them.
?I have an Aga as the focal point of every
kitchen I design,? she explains. Once the
island?s position was marked out, she
decided to only have floor units on the
right-hand side, with the range framed in
the middle. ?I like a mixture of freestanding
and fitted furniture,? she adds. ?Because of
the vintage dresser?s size, it had to sit on one
side of the island. To avoid making the
space feel enclosed, I decided against wall
units on the other.? There also had to be
enough room for the dining table and
chairs: they?ve been in the family for years
and sociable Charlotte and Euan love to
host dinner parties for friends.
When it came to the d閏or, Charlotte
was keen to stick to a predominantly white
palette. ?I?m not a big fan of the minimalist
look,? she says. ?Pink is one of my favourite
colours, so I always try to add in a couple
of splashes, such as in the statement velvet
chair and the upholstery on the seats.?
Three contemporary glass pendants hang
above the kitchen island: finished off with
fuchsia flexes, these contrast beautifully
against the more country-inspired pieces,
such as the dresser and dining set.
Now the heart of Charlotte?s home, the
kitchen?s transformation is complete. ?It?s
a fantastic place to get everyone together,?
she beams. ?We wanted a seamless flow
into the dining area, and the pared-back
d閏or links the spaces. Now we can?t get
people out of here when they visit!?

GOOD IDEA
Stacking a tumble
dryer on top of a
washing machine
saves space. Kits are
available from � for
compatible models
Keep your clothes and linens fresh throughout the winter and
beyond with a convenient and economical cutting-edge appliance
O
nce the weather turns and
it becomes near-impossible
to dry your washing outside,
the next best thing is having
a tumble dryer. Increasingly
affordable, the latest energy-efficient (A+++
to D, highest to lowest) designs have a host
of useful features, such as sensor drying,
heat pump technology and start delay, and
programmes for different fabric types.
The majority of new tumble dryers are
easy-to-use condenser models, in which the
moisture from clothes collects in a water
tray that requires emptying emptied when
full. Vented designs are less common: these
have a hose that needs to be hung outside
a window to allow moisture to escape.
Most dryers have similar dimensions, but
always precisely measure the space you have
available to avoid a costly error ? just a few
millimetres can make all the difference.

iz and Charles Parry?s home
has an interesting story to tell.
It was originally formed of
four cottages, built in the
19th century for orchard
workers at a local manor house. Eventually
uninhabited, these properties were derelict
until a developer bought the plot 18 years
ago and transformed them into one large
family home that the couple fell in love
with, although it needed exterior work.
?When we first bought the place, it was
finished to a high standard, but the builder
sold it without a driveway or any kind
of landscaping,? Liz recalls. ?Creating an
entrance was our first job and we then
spent a fair amount of time designing and
planting to make the outside space match
the quality inside.? Fast-forward 15 years,
and parts of the interior were starting
to look tired and in need of an update ?
including the couple?s en suite bathroom.
Liz began researching the project by
flicking through interiors magazines and
looking for inspiration online. Discovering
that bathroom company InStil Design
was only a few miles away, she wasted no
time in making an appointment to visit
its showroom to have a look around and
ask for initial ideas. ?The room is a
generous size and we already had a large
cast-iron bath in the middle, so I knew
that I wanted a statement tub to be the
focal point of the scheme,? she explains.
Karen Beecroft, the company?s senior
designer, suggested repositioning the bath
against the wall to create a more open
space: ?Having a freestanding design in a
central location creates the issue of where
to put things when bathing,? she says.
?Moving it in front of the window gave
me the ability to add the false wall with
recesses to store toiletries within easy
reach.? It also formed the space needed
to open up the shower area, by installing
a fixed glass panel, so the once cramped
cubicle could become a walk-in design.
With two decent sized windows and
large doors, one of which leads on to
a dressing room, it made sense to work
with the current layout and not reposition
the basin or WC. ?We picked the bath
first of all and then chose the rest of the
materials around it?, explains Liz. ?I didn?t
want it to be overshadowed by a fussy
scheme, but I also wanted to avoid it
feeling cold and clinical or lacking in
character,? she adds. Karen suggested a

also selected shimmering mosaic tiles to

of the freestanding bath. ?As this is our
personal en suite, we didn?t feel we had to
make practical choices to suit others,? Liz
explains, delighted with and inspired by
the end result. ?Not only do we think it?s
beautiful, it?s also made us want to redo

orking an en suite
shower room into
the first floor was
just one small part
of Elaine Colleton?s
refurbishment project ? a major update of
the Oxfordshire townhouse she shares
with partner David. ?When we bought the
property in 2011, we knew it would be a
major undertaking for us,? she recalls, ?but
reconfiguring the rooms was paramount.?
The couple?s main aim upstairs was to
alter the floorplan and add a shower room
to act as an en suite to the adjoining guest
bedroom. Originally a small WC, Elaine
felt it was wasted space: any visitors had
to use the main bathroom when staying
over, so she decided to amalgamate the
existing area with part of the hallway to
form one room. ?We had to consider the
practicalities,? she explains, ?including how
to tank the shower to make it watertight
and whether to install underfloor heating.?
The main issue was how to light a room
with no window: ?We didn?t want guests
to always have to put the light on,? Elaine
adds. Fortunately, her good friend, Nady,
who has designed the interior of several
houses, provided the solution: she advised
having three rows of glass bricks installed
as part of the dividing wall. ?The bedroom
windows provide enough light to reach the
bathroom and filter through the opaque
bricks,? Elaine says. ?Without this feature,
guests would have to rely on the spotlights
and the space would feel less inviting.?
When it came to choosing the interior
of the shower room, Elaine went for a
bold black and white colour scheme as
the base, introducing retro sanitaryware
with a hint of Twenties glamour. ?I?ve gone
for a streamlined design,? she explains. ?To
enhance the feeling of space, we?ve hung
a large mirror along one wall opposite the
glass partition.? Classic white metro tiles
keep the room feeling fresh and their
simplistic design allows the chequerboard
flooring to stand out as the main feature.
The walls are painted in bright white to
maximise the light and balance in the
room, while a solid-oak door is a nod to
the period of the house. Elaine also chose
to finish the raised shower area with a
single glass panel as the screen. ?Because
it?s not the biggest of rooms, we felt that
anything too chunky would compromise
on space,? she explains. ?The frameless pane
acts as an almost invisible division and

INTRODUCE HANDY STORAGE
Open shelving under a basin is a
neat place to display patterned towels
CLEAR WINNER
Opaque glass bricks in the
dividing wall allows light

while maintaining privacy
helps the two parts to flow together too.?
Some savings were made by using some
of the existing plumbing and waste from
the original WC, but pipes did have to
be repositioned to suit the new layout,
which meant extra labour costs. ?We
decided to have the WC, towel rail and
basin along one wall to leave enough space
to get to and from the shower area,? she
adds. ?This ensures the right-hand wall
is kept clear to help open up the room.?
The Victorian-style basin with built-in
towel rail and glass shelf not only provides
additional storage for guests? belongings,
but the open frame is better suited to the
compact room than a blocky vanity unit.
?I love the chrome details,? Elaine says, ?and
the exposed rails mean I can hang towels
to introduce colour and pattern into the
room when it?s time for a quick update.?
The challenge was to design a practical
but attractive shower room and Elaine
planned the layout well to make the most
of her limited space. ?I?m delighted to say
we?ve achieved our aim,? she smiles. ?The
daylight flooding into the room makes all
the difference, and our guests now enjoy
their own bathroom when they visit.?

M
ake those early starts on
winter mornings a little
bit easier to handle by
upgrading to a modern
bathroom radiator.
First, consider the output you need for
the size of your bathroom, measured in
British thermal units per hour (BTU/h).
Next, ask yourself whether you just want
a towel warmer or a design to keep the
whole room heated. There are many styles
to choose from: a traditional cast iron
model looks fantastic in a period setting,
for example, whereas a mirrored finish
will make a modern style statement.
Finally, remember that valves won?t be
included: these are sold separately, so factor
this into your budget. Thermostatic valves
make for an excellent investment, as they
keep temperature under control, in turn
helping to keep your fuel bills down.

NEED TO KNOW
HEAT OUTPUT is
measured in British
thermal units per hour
(BTU/h). To work out
what you need, simply
multiply your room?s
height by its width and
length in feet to get the
volume in cubic feet. Next,
times this by five for the
BTUs. If the exact output
isn?t available, always go
for the next size up.
ALUMINIUM radiators
are great conductors of
BG_Radiators TC_SB.indd 143
heat and have the highest
BTU output, which makes
them the most expensive.
STAINLESS STEEL also
conducts heat well and
won?t rust so will keep
its looks for longer.
MILD STEEL is the least
expensive option, available
in many shapes and sizes
and different colours.
CAST IRON takes longer
to heat and cool. Great
for a classic look but heavy,
it can cost more to install.
BRIGHT IDEA

lder properties are
often out of sync with
how we choose to live
our lives today ? and
Gillian and James
Brunt?s Georgian
terraced house, located in a conservation
area in central London is a case in point.
To transform their home, the couple
enlisted the help of Lizzie Webster of
Fraher Architects. ?It?s a listed building
and a very small artisan house, originally
built for the workers of Waterloo,? Lizzie
explains. ?It was compact, with merely a
front and back room with a tiny outrigger
extension on the ground floor. It was also
in a state of total disrepair having been
left unoccupied for over 10 years.?
Gillian and James wanted to increase the
amount of natural light that entered the
ground-floor level. The couple also sought
to maximise the footprint of the period
property to make it full-width at the back.
Lizzie translated these modest aims into
a stunning contemporary concept that has
brought the house up to date while still
referencing its heritage. Householder and
listed building consent was granted in
September 2014 to create a side return
glazed extension at the rear of the house.
?We designed a glass-infill addition
because we wanted it to be a lightweight
and sensitive approach, at the same time
maximising the amount of natural light
in the internal structure,? Lizzie explains.
Because foundations weren?t being dug
for a basement, the build didn?t involve
significant groundworks, so the project ran
fairly smoothly and to time, taking only
nine months to complete. ?The only slightly
difficult element was making sure the
bespoke glazing arrived on schedule and
was measured correctly,? says Lizzie.
Once the structural works were finished
and the property was weathertight, the
builders were able to move onto the next
stage of the scheme ? the joinery. ?We
have our own in-house partner: Shape
London,? she adds. ?We set it up so that all
the joinery work in our projects could be
completed to exact design requirements
and specifications.? Fraher Architects

MADE TO MEASURE
Shape London, Fraher
Architects? in-house
joinery partner, designed
and built the melamine
kitchen cabinets and
shelves with oak edging
came up with an interior design plan
to offer a modern interpretation of the
building?s original detailing. Also, the
wood wall panelling, panelled fireplaces,
skirting and architraves have all been
restored to their original condition, which
helps to celebrate the house?s history.
The wooden kitchen and bathroom
cabinets were painted on the outside, but
left exposed internally to showcase the
oak?s natural warmth. Even the colour of
the windows and door frames are specific:
?A dark blue heritage shade was used
throughout, which is reflected in various
parts of the building,? Lizzie explains.
With the extension being predominantly
glazed, it was difficult to install lighting
goodhomesmagazine.com I JANUARY 2018 I 149
Extension_TJ TC_SB.indd 149
13/11/2017 14:32
in the dining room area. Lizzie?s ingenious
solution to this problem was to install
pendant lights from a wall power-point
and create a sucker holder. This then
connected to the glazed ceiling to allow
them to hang above the dining table.
The remainder of the design approach
was to keep everything looking as clean as
possible. For instance, a light colour palette
and materials are used in the bathrooms
and a herringbone floor-tile pattern runs
throughout the property to help create a
natural flow through the interior of the
house, extending out into the garden space.
With all work now finally completed,
James and Gillian are delighted with the
end result. All that remains for them to
do is to relax and enjoy the fruit of their
labours: an inspirational fusion of listed
building heritage and 21st-century living.

Slow-cooked ragu
An Italian classic ? a delicious, hearty option to tuck into with friends over a bottle of red
PREP 15 MINS COOK 2-2� HOURS SERVES 4
INGREDIENTS
2 tbsp olive oil
40g butter
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 medium carrot, finely chopped
1 celery stick, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
50g Parma ham or prosciutto
400g lean, minced meat (try a
combination of beef or veal and pork)
175ml white wine
300g good quality artisanal
passata or strained tomatoes
200ml chicken stock
1 bay leaf
3 tbsp double cream
Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
Buttered tagliatelle or fettuccine,
to serve
Freshly grated Parmesan, to serve
METHOD
1 In a large heavy-based pan, heat the
olive oil and add the butter. Pop in
the finely chopped onion, carrot and
celery, give everything a good stir, put
a lid on the pan and cook over a low
heat for about 10 mins until soft.
2 Add the garlic and cook for another
couple of mins. Next, introduce the
Parma ham or prosciutto and minced
meat in two batches, turning it with a
spoon until it is slightly coloured. Pour
in the white wine and simmer until the
liquid is reduced by about a third. Add
the passata/strained tomatoes, chicken
stock and bay leaf. Season with salt
and black pepper and leave uncovered
on a very low heat to cook for approx
2-2� hours, stirring occasionally.
3 After this time the sauce should be
creamy but not too thick ? add a bit of
extra stock if it needs thinning. Check
the seasoning and stir in the cream.
Serve with buttered tagliatelle or
fettuccine and freshly grated Parmesan.
4 A light red wine, such as a Rosso di
Montalcino, is the perfect companion.

EASY
SIDE
INGREDIENTS
50g roasted, skinned hazelnuts
(if you can?t find skinned ones,
roast them with their skins on
until dark brown then rub off
the skins with a kitchen towel)
2 heads of red or green chicory
2 Comice or Conference pears,
peeled and cut into 8 segments
100g Roquefort, roughly crumbled
FOR THE DRESSING
2 tbsp light sweet Moscatel or
southern French Muscat, such as
Muscat de St Jean de Minervois
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
2 tbsp mild olive oil
Sea salt & freshly ground white pepper
METHOD
1 Preheat the oven to 180?C/160?C
fan/gas 4. Freshen up the hazelnuts
by roasting them in the oven or
toasting in a dry frying pan or skillet.
2 Set aside to cool and chop roughly.
Separate out the chicory leaves and
put in iced water for 15?20 mins, then
drain and pat dry with a kitchen towel.
3 To make the dressing, measure
out the sweet wine, white wine
vinegar and the olive oil into a jam
jar and give it a good shake, or put
the ingredients in a bowl and whisk.
Adjust the amount of wine, vinegar
or oil to taste ? add a little wine
for sweetness or vinegar for extra
acidity. Season with sea salt and
freshly ground white pepper, to taste.
4 Arrange the salad on individual
plates, starting with a pile of chicory
leaves, then add the pear segments
and Roquefort. Re-whisk or shake
the dressing, check the seasoning
and spoon over the salad. Top with
the chopped hazelnuts.
5 A lush white wine such as an
oak-aged Sauvignon or SauvignonSemillon blend is the perfect partner.

METHOD
METHOD
1 Measure the Amontillado sherry into a pan and add the
butter. Gently melt over a low heat then stir in the crab.
2 Heat through the ingredients to just under boiling point
and simmer for a couple of minutes, then take off the heat
and season to taste with ground mace spice ? but make
sure you go easy, as it?s powerful ? cayenne pepper and
a squeeze of lemon. You probably won?t need salt.
3 Pour the mixture into warmed ramekin dishes, sprinkle
lightly with cayenne pepper and serve with toasted slices
of sourdough bread, tortilla chips or breadsticks for dipping.
4 A cheeky glass of sherry goes well with this dish, as does
a rich white wine, such as a Chardonnay or a Godello.
1 Preheat the oven to 180?C/160?C fan/gas 4.
2 Heat the red wine and 25g of the sugar in a small
saucepan over a low heat until dissolved. Bring to the boil,
simmer until reduced by half. Take the pan off the heat.
3 Sift the cocoa powder into a large bowl, pour over
2 tbsp of the reduced wine and stir to make a paste.
4 Add the remaining caster/granulated sugar, stir then tip
in the softened butter, eggs and half the self-raising flour
and beat with a wooden spoon or electric whisk. Fold in the
remaining flour. Spoon into the pan and level. Bake for about
30?35 mins or until well-risen and firm to the touch. Leave
in the pan for 10 mins, then tip out onto a wire rack to cool.
5 To make the frosting, break up the chocolate and put in
a basin with the butter and 2 tbsp of the red wine reduction.
Place bowl over a pan of hot water, making sure it doesn?t
touch the water. Once melted, remove from heat and beat
in the sifted icing sugar. Swirl the icing over cooled cake and
leave to set for 2 hours. Cut into 18 rectangles.
6 Wash down a slice of this sweet treat with a decadent Maury
dessert wine. A cup of freshly brewed coffee also fits the bill.

orking an en suite
shower room into
the first floor was
just one small part
of Elaine Colleton?s
refurbishment project ? a major update of
the Oxfordshire townhouse she shares
with partner David. ?When we bought the
property in 2011, we knew it would be a
major undertaking for us,? she recalls, ?but
reconfiguring the rooms was paramount.?
The couple?s main aim upstairs was to
alter the floorplan and add a shower room
to act as an en suite to the adjoining guest
bedroom. Originally a small WC, Elaine
felt it was wasted space: any visitors had
to use the main bathroom when staying
over, so she decided to amalgamate the
existing area with part of the hallway to
form one room. ?We had to consider the
practicalities,? she explains, ?including how
to tank the shower to make it watertight
and whether to install underfloor heating.?
The main issue was how to light a room
with no window: ?We didn?t want guests
to always have to put the light on,? Elaine
adds. Fortunately, her good friend, Nady,
who has designed the interior of several
houses, provided the solution: she advised
having three rows of glass bricks installed
as part of the dividing wall. ?The bedroom
windows provide enough light to reach the
bathroom and filter through the opaque
bricks,? Elaine says. ?Without this feature,
guests would have to rely on the spotlights
and the space would feel less inviting.?
When it came to choosing the interior
of the shower room, Elaine went for a
bold black and white colour scheme as
the base, introducing retro sanitaryware
with a hint of Twenties glamour. ?I?ve gone
for a streamlined design,? she explains. ?To
enhance the feeling of space, we?ve hung
a large mirror along one wall opposite the
glass partition.? Classic white metro tiles
keep the room feeling fresh and their
simplistic design allows the chequerboard
flooring to stand out as the main feature.
The walls are painted in bright white to
maximise the light and balance in the
room, while a solid-oak door is a nod to
the period of the house. Elaine also chose
to finish the raised shower area with a
single glass panel as the screen. ?Because
it?s not the biggest of rooms, we felt that
anything too chunky would compromise
on space,? she explains. ?The frameless pane
acts as an almost invisible division and

IDEAS TO STEAL
GOOD IDEA
Simple black and
white floor tiles have
an instant impact in
a compact bathroom
Be smart when furnishing an
en suite where space is at a premium
INTRODUCE HANDY STORAGE
Open shelving under a basin is a
neat place to display patterned towels
CLEAR WINNER
Opaque glass bricks in the
dividing wall allows light
into the interior bathroom
while maintaining privacy
helps the two parts to flow together too.?
Some savings were made by using some
of the existing plumbing and waste from
the original WC, but pipes did have to
be repositioned to suit the new layout,
which meant extra labour costs. ?We
decided to have the WC, towel rail and
basin along one wall to leave enough space
to get to and from the shower area,? she
adds. ?This ensures the right-hand wall
is kept clear to help open up the room.?
The Victorian-style basin with built-in
towel rail and glass shelf not only provides
additional storage for guests? belongings,
but the open frame is better suited to the
compact room than a blocky vanity unit.
?I love the chrome details,? Elaine says, ?and
the exposed rails mean I can hang towels
to introduce colour and pattern into the
room when it?s time for a quick update.?
The challenge was to design a practical
but attractive shower room and Elaine
planned the layout well to make the most
of her limited space. ?I?m delighted to say
we?ve achieved our aim,? she smiles. ?The
daylight flooding into the room makes all
the difference, and our guests now enjoy
their own bathroom when they visit.?

RADIATOR
BE ST
BUYS
Whatever the size of your space, there are plenty of distinctive and
functional new designs to give your bathroom a toasty makeover
M
ake those early starts on
winter mornings a little
bit easier to handle by
upgrading to a modern
bathroom radiator.
First, consider the output you need for
the size of your bathroom, measured in
British thermal units per hour (BTU/h).
Next, ask yourself whether you just want
a towel warmer or a design to keep the
whole room heated. There are many styles
to choose from: a traditional cast iron
model looks fantastic in a period setting,
for example, whereas a mirrored finish
will make a modern style statement.
Finally, remember that valves won?t be
included: these are sold separately, so factor
this into your budget. Thermostatic valves
make for an excellent investment, as they
keep temperature under control, in turn
helping to keep your fuel bills down.
GOOD IDEA

running in summer
when the heating?s

design or one with

NEED TO KNOW
HEAT OUTPUT is
measured in British
thermal units per hour
(BTU/h). To work out
what you need, simply
multiply your room?s
height by its width and
length in feet to get the
volume in cubic feet. Next,
times this by five for the
BTUs. If the exact output
isn?t available, always go
for the next size up.
ALUMINIUM radiators
are great conductors of
BG_Radiators TC_SB.indd 143
heat and have the highest
BTU output, which makes
them the most expensive.
STAINLESS STEEL also
conducts heat well and
won?t rust so will keep
its looks for longer.
MILD STEEL is the least
expensive option, available
in many shapes and sizes
and different colours.
CAST IRON takes longer
to heat and cool. Great
for a classic look but heavy,
it can cost more to install.

lder properties are
often out of sync with
how we choose to live
our lives today ? and
Gillian and James
Brunt?s Georgian
terraced house, located in a conservation
area in central London is a case in point.
To transform their home, the couple
enlisted the help of Lizzie Webster of
Fraher Architects. ?It?s a listed building
and a very small artisan house, originally
built for the workers of Waterloo,? Lizzie
explains. ?It was compact, with merely a
front and back room with a tiny outrigger
extension on the ground floor. It was also
in a state of total disrepair having been
left unoccupied for over 10 years.?
Gillian and James wanted to increase the
amount of natural light that entered the
ground-floor level. The couple also sought
to maximise the footprint of the period
property to make it full-width at the back.
Lizzie translated these modest aims into
a stunning contemporary concept that has
brought the house up to date while still
referencing its heritage. Householder and
listed building consent was granted in
September 2014 to create a side return
glazed extension at the rear of the house.
?We designed a glass-infill addition
because we wanted it to be a lightweight
and sensitive approach, at the same time
maximising the amount of natural light
in the internal structure,? Lizzie explains.
Because foundations weren?t being dug
for a basement, the build didn?t involve
significant groundworks, so the project ran
fairly smoothly and to time, taking only
nine months to complete. ?The only slightly
difficult element was making sure the
bespoke glazing arrived on schedule and
was measured correctly,? says Lizzie.
Once the structural works were finished
and the property was weathertight, the
builders were able to move onto the next
stage of the scheme ? the joinery. ?We
have our own in-house partner: Shape
London,? she adds. ?We set it up so that all
the joinery work in our projects could be
completed to exact design requirements
and specifications.? Fraher Architects

MADE TO MEASURE
Shape London, Fraher
Architects? in-house
joinery partner, designed
and built the melamine
kitchen cabinets and
shelves with oak edging
came up with an interior design plan
to offer a modern interpretation of the
building?s original detailing. Also, the
wood wall panelling, panelled fireplaces,
skirting and architraves have all been
restored to their original condition, which
helps to celebrate the house?s history.
The wooden kitchen and bathroom
cabinets were painted on the outside, but
left exposed internally to showcase the
oak?s natural warmth. Even the colour of
the windows and door frames are specific:
?A dark blue heritage shade was used
throughout, which is reflected in various
parts of the building,? Lizzie explains.
With the extension being predominantly
glazed, it was difficult to install lighting

in the dining room area. Lizzie?s ingenious
solution to this problem was to install
pendant lights from a wall power-point
and create a sucker holder. This then
connected to the glazed ceiling to allow
them to hang above the dining table.
The remainder of the design approach
was to keep everything looking as clean as
possible. For instance, a light colour palette
and materials are used in the bathrooms
and a herringbone floor-tile pattern runs
throughout the property to help create a
natural flow through the interior of the
house, extending out into the garden space.
With all work now finally completed,
James and Gillian are delighted with the
end result. All that remains for them to
do is to relax and enjoy the fruit of their
labours: an inspirational fusion of listed
building heritage and 21st-century living.
