From the Editor
WELCOME
With just a lick of bold paint or a roll of stunning
wallpaper, your home can feel refreshed, revived and
ready to take on the year ahead. Sales of vibrant sofas
(particularly velvet) and dramatic shades of paint are
set to rise even further in 2019, so this issue is all about
embracing your inner colour queen and having the
confidence to just go for it. Whatever project you?re
embarking on this year, I?d love to see your progress,
so do tag us on Instagram using @goodhomesmag and
use the hashtag #thisgoodhome ? especially if you?ve
used any of our savvy storage ideas on page 103, as clearing the clutter
after the Christmas madness is one of my very favourite pastimes!

What makes a good romantic
gesture for Valentines Day?
It completely depends on the
person. Ask questions before
the day, then choose a gift
tailored to them. Or, for more
spontaneity, go crazy and
make a night of it. Book a
hotel, tell them to pack an
overnight bag, and go ?
it?s about creating special
memories after all. I like to
build excitement leading up
Romantic recipe
Berry heart pie
1 Melt 20g butter then add 500g frozen summer fruits,
100g caster sugar, 1 split vanilla pod, 1 tbsp cornflower
and 2 tbsp water. 2 Bring to the boil and simmer for 5
minutes. Pour into an ovenproof dish. 3 Roll out 375g
ready rolled shortcrust pastry. Use a heart-shaped cutter
to cut out 10 large hearts and 10 small. Brush with egg and
place the small hearts on top of the large ones. 4 Arrange
over the berries and bake in a preheated 170?C oven for 20
mins. Dust with icing sugar and serve with double cream.
Recipe from

to the occasion ? let your partner
know two weeks in advance
you?re going away, then every
few days add to the plan.
Do you have a signature dish
if you were staying in? I would
make something really simple,
so I could spend as little time
in the kitchen as possible!
Perhaps lobster: slice in half,
spread with salty, French butter,
sprinkle with parsley and cook
in the oven, then serve with a
good bottle of wine.
Where is your favourite
restaurant for a date? Beast,
near London?s Oxford Street
has everything ? from quality
of food to great hospitality.
Long bench seating means
you can interact with others,
or keep it intimate.
What makes Valentine?s Day
so special in the First Dates
restaurant? The anticipation
that this might be your chance
to ?nd the one worth spending
it with. The place is like Christmas
? they know there will be gifts,
but what?s inside is a mystery.

hy do you think that staying
in is the new going out?
After the more obvious reasons,
such as a lack of cash and energy,
access to creature comforts is one of
the main motivations. It?s not just a generational thing, either
? more than half of millennials are going out less, compared
to the national average of 40 per cent. So we?re starting to
see the emergence of a new trend for ?big nights in? at home.
What?s hot at the moment in the world of furniture?
From sofas to upholstered headboards, we?ve seen a 355
per cent increase in velvet coverings in the past year. A
more mix-and-match approach to furnishing your home
is also on the rise, with customers buying from different
sofa and armchair collections in the same order.

Light and shade
Shades of yellow, from buttercup
through to mustard, are the ideal burst
of colour to place against on-trend charcoal
walls and opulent navy velvet. Spread the
pops of yellow evenly across the room in
upholstery, lighting, throws and rugs.
Add interest to plain bedlinen by stacking
square throw cushions (one patterned, one
plain) against your pillowcases, then tuck a
matching throw across the foot of the bed

? I wanted
to create a
hideaway ?
Set in a quaint Cornish hamlet, Sarah Stanley?s
bespoke two-bedroom cabin provides an oasis
of calm with an Antipodean feel
Words NATALIE OSBORN Photographer COLIN POOLE
Living area ?While it?s a really light-illed space during the
day, I planned layers of subtle lighting so that after dark it feels
cosy and cocooning,? Sarah says. Industrial-style wall lighting
provides a softening base, accented by candlelight and the
glowing logburner in the heart of the room

hen Sarah Stanley and her partner Andy got the keys
to a higgledy-piggledy cottage just a short stroll from
the Cornish coastline, it was the expansive garden plot
that captured their imagination. ?We wanted to build
something that would be very different from our home,
but still feel in-keeping with the surrounding hamlet,? recalls Sarah. ?It needed to
be somewhere that could be rented out as a holiday let, but also a bolthole for
us, too. Our house is adjacent to my office, whereas The Cotton Tree is around a
20-minute drive away; so heading there for a weekend allows me to leave work behind.?
Sarah lived in Australia while her three now grown-up children were toddlers, so
she took a lot of inspiration for the design from the country?s Queenslander-style
Dining area A large cable drum topped with a glass top makes the perfect
small-space dining table for the open-plan living area of The Cotton Tree. French
doors lead out to the veranda, which wraps around the cabin

Kitchen Sitting in an L-shape, the kitchen doesn?t impose into the living area and rather acts as a stunning showcase of bespoke
furniture, from the timber cladding to the grey-washed cabinetry, that doubles as a workspace. ?I actually found the doors for the top
cupboard at a reclamation yard for just �,? says Sarah. ?They?ve turned out to be a real feature.?

properties, with their large wrap-around verandas, corrugated iron roofs and
sleek timber cladding. ?I wanted to encourage more indoor/outdoor living, which
is typical of the Antipodean way of life, although obviously we?re not as blessed
with sunshine in this country as Australia is!? she says.
Painted crisp white and with a simple geometric design, its quiet style continues
inside. ?We wanted the interior to feel very calm ? a space that was pared-back and
relaxing to be in, yet equally cosy in winter.? An Esse Lionheart woodburner is the
central point to the open-plan kitchen-living-dining area, which soars through the
double-height space and draws the eye up to the large picture window that steals a
slice of the Cornish sky. An exposed stud wall creates display nooks for vintage trinkets,
as well as disguising the TV behind clad doors. ?Building from scratch meant we could
incorporate these little details that make all the diference, including underloor heating,
so we didn?t have to worry about radiators and could really free the layout up. ?I
wanted to create light-filled spaces with a bohemian edge,? Sarah continues. ?Natural
linens sit well alongside reclaimed wood and nautical-inspired finds that reflect the
seaside location.? The kitchen is undoubtedly one of the showpieces of the design,

cohesion in your

featuring yet more wood ? but with a washed grey tone that
complements the warmer wall cladding. ?I opted from reclaimed
doors with a simple quartz worktop for a timeless look that?s
also hardwearing,? she explains.
Sarah?s carpenters had their work cut out, as in the main
bedroom she called on their skills yet again. ?he bed base is made
from reclaimed wood and then we used bamboo to create a simple
headboard, which I draped with fine linen.? A vintage sliding door
is a chic space-saving addition and reveals a wall of storage,
stopping short of the ceiling to create a feature ledge.
In the bathroom, geometric tiles travel from floor to ceiling,
and frame two traditional-style showers. ?My thinking behind
this room was that we needed somewhere to relax in after a day
Bedroom Texture comes to the fore with draped linens,
woven cushions and a macram� wall hanging. ?We opted for
one striking piece of artwork so as not to clutter the space,?
says Sarah. Vintage lobster pots and buoys add visual interest
Hide roller blinds Conceal the functionality of
a roller blind with draped fabric. Recreate Sarah?s
look using a length of bamboo as a curtain rail, then
hand-stitch ties onto linen squares before tying to
the bamboo. Affording an informal look and feel,
the linen is purely decorative.

Roll-top bath Instead of mounting the taps
onto the timber-clad wall of the bathroom, which
could get wet and rot, Sarah savvily chose to it
her taps to the inside of the bath instead
Reclaimed finds Continuing the rustic nautical
theme, a weathered porthole has been transformed
into a vanity mirror, above a butler-style basin
?After a day of
stomping the coastal
path, this bathroom
is such a relaxing,
indulgent space?

space, two vintage-style showers offer pared-back
luxury, and clever use on one wall of geometric
monochrome tiling from Mandarin Stone seamlessly
lows into the looring for a wet-room effect
of stomping the coastal path,? she says. ?The bath was a reclamation
yard find, which we had re-enamelled, and pairs really well with the
high-level toilet cistern and vintage taps. The cabinet in here was
made on site by our very hard-working carpenters.?
After a two-year build, Sarah has one piece of advice to share
with homeowners eyeing up their garden for a hideaway of their own:
?Work with a team who understand that certain features will evolve
as the build progresses,? she says. ?While the essence of the cabin
didn?t migrate too broadly from the original design, lots of the finer
details did. But I?m glad I made those tweaks, as I?m so happy with how
it?s turned out. Saying that, more kitchen storage would be handy!?

T
he moment she stepped into the house that was
to become her family?s home, Michelle Dawson
felt a positive vibe. ?I stood in the hallway and
peeked into the front room,? she recalls. ?The
daylight flooding through the bay window was incredible, and
I knew immediately this was a special house.?
Michelle and her husband Nick had been raising a family and
working their way up the property ladder over several years, and
were renting in Kingston upon Thames while they searched for
their next project. ?This time we wanted a place that needed
complete refurbishment, where we could make our mark and
build a home,? she says. The property that had charmed Michelle
was detached, spacious, and had potential to extend, but on the
downside, the interior was damp in places, with an old-fashioned
layout and worn, dated d閏or ? but none of that put the couple
off. They moved in with their two small sons, Hugo and Solomon,
spending the next two years getting to know the house and planning
a top-down transformation. ?Everything was a bit tatty, but it didn?t
matter,? Michelle explains. ?The boys could tear about as much as
they wanted, and we got a really good understanding of the space.?
Living room Neutral walls and loors with a ireplace and
shelving painted in navy offer the perfect backdrop for Michelle?s
colourful inds, including this plush pink Designers Guild rug
While Nick concentrated on the build, Michelle focused on the
interior. By then she was expecting their third child, and aiming to
create a beautiful and practical home to suit a growing family. With
plans in place, Michelle, Nick and their boys moved out temporarily
and the builders moved in. Over several months, the small back
kitchen and snug were knocked through and an extension built on
FEBRUARY 2019 GOODHOMESMAGAZINE.COM 67
WINTER HOMES | ECLECTIC VICTORIAN PROPERTY
Kitchen In the very heart of the open-plan living space, the built-in island bench gets plenty of use by the children, as well
as guests as Michelle cooks. Teardrop copper pendant lights from Dusk Lighting accentuate the ceiling height, and the low-key
German kitchen cabinetry, sourced locally from Dufont Faes, have a gloss worksurface to relect the light. ?The island is pale grey,
but for contrast, I chose navy for the wall units,? explains Michelle. ?I think it?s softer than black or charcoal grey.?
68 GOODHOMESMAGAZINE.COM FEBRUARY 2019
Dining area The generous dining table from
Made.com is positioned to maximise the views out to
the garden, and can be extended to seat 10. The sleek,
contemporary style sits well with the understated,
high-gloss kitchen, and classic Eames chairs from
John Lewis & Partners make a bright statement
two sides, forming a substantial, family-oriented
kitchen and living zone, with double doors linking
it to the more formal living room at the front of the
house. Upstairs the space was remodelled into a large
bathroom and four bedrooms and on the second loor,
a master suite was created from the loft space.
Although off-site, Michelle and Nick were involved
in the renovation from start to finish. Both visited
every day to monitor progress and answer any
questions, while their evenings were spent planning
and researching anything from lights to kitchen
appliances and furniture. ?It was all-consuming, and
took a lot of energy, especially with two young children,?
admits Michelle. ?The minute the boys were in bed,
we?d start discussing the house. We really enjoyed the
whole experience, but it did take over our lives!?
Design detail A hanging wicker chair
from Decorelo is an irresistible inishing touch
for the kitchen?s overhead steel beam, which
has been incorporated into the open-plan
design rather than attempting to disguise it.
Painted dark grey, the structural supports add
architectural interest and help zone the space

?Feature walls
are a great way
to inject colour
and visual impact
without it being
too obtrusive?
Within a year, the couple had moved back in, their
new son Rafferty had arrived, and the house had been
transformed. At its heart, the stunning open-plan
kitchen-cum-living room features overhead rooflights
and a run of bi-folding doors, which flood the space
with light. Hefty steel supports add contemporary,
loft-style appeal and help designate the diferent zones,
and there is plenty of seating and space to cook and
entertain. ?We often have friends round,? says Michelle.
?Where I grew up, everyone?s door was always open,
and I love making people feel welcome in our home.?
Michelle?s passion for colour is evident throughout;
most walls and floors have been kept neutral, then
layered with splashes of teal , pink, yellow and green,
so the overall effect is fresh, fun and vibrant. ?I wear
bright clothes every day and there?s virtually nothing
black or grey in my entire wardrobe,? she says. ?It?s
the same when it comes to the house ? I just go for
colours I love and it all seems to work together.?
Alongside colour, Michelle has added interest and
personality with plenty of texture and pattern. A pop
of shimmering turquoise and gold wallpaper gives the
couple?s bedroom instant glamour, while the bathroom?s
exposed original brickwork shows off the property?s

R
elocating to Warwickshire was more accident
than design for Alex and Paul Clarke. Having
moved from London and smarting from missing
out on a Sussex house, the pair put plans to set up
a new lifestyle-led estate agency firm on hold and headed to Alex?s
parents to take stock. ?I grew up around here,? she explains. ?It felt like
the natural thing to do.? Gradually, the idea of remaining close to her
family took root and the couple began to look at the local property
market with increasing interest ? and in the midst of a cluster of farm
buildings at the edge of a tiny hamlet, they found their new home?
It was one half of a brick and tile farmhouse, originally a pair of
cottages, with an odd layout and dated interior but a glorious setting.
?It had been on the market for quite a long time,? recalls Paul. ?I think
people were wary of the Grade II-listing, and also they were selling
three plots at the time. It needed all three purchasers to fall into line.?
House details
Dating from the 1600s, the
Grade II-listed Warwickshire
property was originally two
farmworkers? cottages, now
combined and extended to
form a single four-bedroom
family home

in 2015 and has a current
value of �5,000

?We ind gems in
reclamation yards
and antiques shops
- everything in this
house has a story?
Suddenly, their plans began to come together. ?We
bought this house, still wondering where we might
end up and then set up the business,? says Alex.
Any risk of taking on a period house scarcely ruffled
them. ?Everyone was asking whether the beams were
OK or whether there was woodworm or rot,? says Alex.
?We thought, well, it?s been standing for hundreds of
years ? it?s going to be alright.?
Even so, making sense of the floorplan was a
challenge. The property?s past life meant there were
two front doors, one bathroom dividing the ground
floor, with another above, its own two doors opening
onto one bedroom. There was also an odd staircase
that began in the kitchen and led nowhere. ?The
builder said it would be simpler to just strip it back
and start again,? Alex says.
Plans hatched, they set about reworking and
reinvigorating the space by opening up the kitchen
with a simple run of cobalt-blue cabinets, adding
a new storm porch to make a proper entrance,
Kitchen In an open-plan space, one strong
accent colour will deine a key area. Painted in
Farrow & Ball?s Hague Blue and topped with quartz
work surfaces, the British Standard cabinets provide
a bold backdrop. Ingeniously, the long and slim
shelf is made from a single scaffold plank
FEBRUARY 2019 GOODHOMESMAGAZINE.COM 79
WINTER HOMES | RURAL COTTAGE
Kitchen Stripped of their varnish, the original
plank and batten doors add to the rustic style.
Alex has teamed this one with a sheer curtain
from Anthropologie to soften the look
redesigning the upper floor to define the bedrooms
and bathroom, and landscaping the garden.
Local contacts paid off. The team of builders shared
the couple?s love of period buildings and enjoyed their
willingness to be imaginative and take design risks.
For instance, pendant lights loop from the ceilings on
long flex ? ?so we can easily move the lighting around
if we need to in future,? Alex points out ? and one
bedroom window is now framed by bare pink plaster.
Their much-admired rough-cast kitchen floor was a
happy accident. ?It is just what was underneath when
we ripped up the old lino,? says Paul. ?The companies
who poured concrete said the levels are so wonky it
would be an absolute disaster, so it?s just stripped back
with rugs on top. You can see the old bitumen and
patches of screed. Without fail, everyone who visits
here asks us where we got the floor from!?
Downstairs, hidden beams have been uncovered
and others sandblasted clean to remove decades of

and visually appealing rustic touch
Dining area The French farmhouse table and chapel chairs came from London?s Columbia Road market, and the couple
bought the skin underneath in Amsterdam and carried it home on their light. Layers of linoleum were lifted to reveal
the colours and textures of the bitumen-patched loor beneath, and new glazed doors open onto the garden

Bathroom Mixing old with new is key to the Clarkes? style. Here, the contemporary bath is a bold
contrast with the basin set into a vintage pine table: ?It?s from Alex?s grandfather?s house and it?s perfect,?
adds Paul. The bathroom?s ceiling was also opened up to its full height to increase the sense of space
Guest bedroom Brick and bare plaster is
softened by the cosy texture of an old blanket.
The bed base was made from a discarded pallet
and its headboard is a salvaged gilt picture frame
black paint. Upstairs, taking down two false ceilings
in the biggest of the three bedrooms has liberated the
space and made it feel lighter and more open. Walls
are all in the palest of grey-whites, a clear backdrop
to their eclectic mix of vintage and contemporary
furniture. ?A lot has come from reclamation yards and
antiques shops,? says Paul. ?I like that they have stories.?
There was no grand plan, Alex says. ?We find things
that we love, knowing that wherever we put them, they
will fit. Our flat in London was modern, with a white
high-gloss kitchen, but the table suited it. If you love
something, it will always work.? She has faith in instinct
THE BIG IDEA
Like Alex and Paul,
get creative with
exposed brick walls
for a softer twist on
the industrial look.
Ask your plasterer
to curve around
just one section
(choosing brickwork
that is the most
intact or is in a key
area of the room)
to form a stylish
keyhole feature
and acting fast: blink and you miss it. ?Alex is so
organised and methodical,? says Paul, ?but when it
comes to buying stuff for the house, she makes quick
decisions.? The essence of it all is simplicity and
purpose: light-filtering linen at the windows, soft
leather seating, weathered woods, earthy woollen
rugs to lend warmth and utilitarian accessories.
All work was completed in time for a christening
party for their daughter Theodora. ?It was low-key, but
lovely,? says Paul, ?Afterwards, we had a big barbecue
with trestle tables in our garden. We see more of our
family and friends now than we ever did, and I don?t
know if we would have that from another house.
In our business we probably should be advising
people to move house all the time, but when you
find somewhere you love, you want to stay.?

F
ollowing five years living in California, with plans to move their
expanding family back to London, Emma and Tom Morris knew
that they wanted to find somewhere comparable to the light and
bright home they?d left behind in San Francisco. ?We had lived in
a very open-plan house there, and had spent a lot of time outside, so we wanted to
recapture this feeling in a new place,? recalls Emma.
With luck on their side, the couple found their dream house in the desirable De
Beauvoir area of London, with just enough time to renovate before the birth of their
second child ? and with the added bonus of not having to live there while the dust
and dirt was being created by the work. The much-sought-after conservation area

Kitchen Designed by deVOL, the kitchen is one of the stand-out features of the house. ?We were so inspired by the showroom in

to be included in our scheme,? Emma says. ?It was a real splurge but we are so happy with the inal result.?

own distinct shade of green to match her

Statement splashback Blush tiles from
Floors of Stone were laid in a herringbone
style to complement the new parquet looring
in which the property is situated is an oasis of calm,
and gave Emma and Tom a sense of community ?
something that satisfied their California cravings.
On the irst viewing, they were drawn to the beautiful
living room with its French windows, flanked by
impressive shutters, which look out onto the street and
garden. Although the house is listed so a layout change
would prove difficult, and it was nicely decorated but
not to the couple?s taste, they both knew it was right for
their growing family. ?After seeing so many properties,
for the first time this felt like a forever home for us
? and one where we could really make our mark.?
Emma and Tom could instantly visualise how
they could introduce an essence of Californian style
through the open-plan space on the ground floor, with

out onto the garden. ?For inspiration, I thought about
where I feel most calm ? and that?s when I?m surrounded

beautiful Rebecca Louise Law print of an overgrown
greenhouse, which I could look at all day. This led me
to start exploring green as a basis for the scheme.?

ground floor and was starved of natural light, so it was
the first on the renovations list. Emma approached
deVOL to design the kitchen and opted for a bespoke
green hue for the cabinets for a fresh, inviting feel.
Light fittings, tiles and stools from the same company
were too beautiful to resist, and so Emma?s job was
made easy on that front. One of her favourite things
in the kitchen is the copper breakfast bar ? and all
the marks inflicted from daily wear and tear simply
adds to its character. The pink tiles from Floors of
Stone were Emma?s biggest gamble, but look stunning
against the green walls. ?The kitchen was the big
investment in the renovations, but we knew how

continues through to the dining room and snug, using three shades
of Farrow & Ball paint to create a coherent space that flows. Artwork
bought by Tom for Emma?s 30th birthday provides a vivid pop of
colour against one of the dark green walls.
Decorating the living area ? the room that made Emma and Tom
first fall in love with the house ? was somehow the most difficult,
however. ?The windows and high ceilings are so impressive that you
could almost do nothing with it, and it would still look stunning ?
which strangely is what I struggled with,? Emma explains. ?Anything

we added to the room needed to do those beautiful elements justice.?
However, it was their amazing furniture finds bought from antiques
markets in San Francisco that finally gave the couple the steer,
resulting in a sophisticated, grown-up space. A television-free
zone, this room is now a place for contemplation and relaxation.
?The previous owners had a lot of books so we decided to keep the
bookshelves, and one day ?when we don?t have two tiny ones to
run around after ? I?d like to buy more books to fill them,? she says.
Emma was tempted to paint the room a moody, dark colour but,
in the end, decided on a neutral shade of blush to enable the huge
hero windows to take centre stage. In fact, choosing the paint
colour proved to be so hard that she put it to the vote, and her mum
and sister made the inal decision: China Clay by Little Greene. A
statement mustard Chesterfield doubles as a sofa bed for guests,
and to the couple?s delight, they can still shop at the London branch
of their much-loved US interiors shop, West Elm, having bought
lights and rugs from there over the years.
Completing the renovation, Tom was given free rein to create a
minimalist upstairs bathroom with natural wood finishes against
a backdrop of charcoal walls and metro tiles. The guest bathroom in

contrast features marble accents and petrol hues for an opulent
feel. The children?s bedrooms were inspired by quilts made by their
grandmother when they were born, which Emma has teamed with
whimsical Donna Wilson prints and a joyful yellow decorating scheme.
?Looking back, I think the rooms in the house that have been the
most successful are the ones where we weren?t afraid to just go for
it, like in the kitchen,? Emma reflects. ?This project has taught me
to trust my gut, feel the fear and then do it anyway ? I really am so
proud of what we?ve created here.?

Roxy Hepworth transformed her dark kitchen into a chic
and airy family space without breaking the bank
Feature SALLY SMITH Photographer RACHEL SMITH
Bespoke design Cabinets in luxurious Little Greene
Basalt and white form an effective contrast in this classic scheme
WHY DID YOU DISLIKE YOUR OLD KITCHEN? It
was small and dingy, with a galley layout and a bodged
side-return extension. There was simply no space!
HOW DID YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE ROOM?
A light-filled kitchen-diner that made the most of the
sun at the back of the house was our aim. I really wanted
an architecturally interesting extension, with plenty of
glass panels, not just standard skylights.
WHAT WERE YOUR MUST-HAVES? A dining and
seating area. There was limited space, but we weren?t
going to compromise on a place to sit and eat as a family.
WERE THERE ANY DISASTERS ALONG THE WAY?
The project was meant to take three months, but it took
nearly 10. Unfortunately, we had terrible builders working
for us ? my husband James had to ask them to leave!
WHAT WAS THE BEST BARGAIN YOU FOUND?
We thought we would have to invest in a pricey kitchen
in order to get the finish we wanted. Luckily, James
and I managed to find the same Shaker-style doors with
a less expensive brand. We upstyled the cabinetry by
custom-spraying the doors and adding brass handles
to give it a gorgeous high-end look at half the price.
DID ANYTHING COST MORE THAN EXPECTED?
I?d budgeted around �0 for a gold three-way tap. I got a
bit of a shock though when I found out it was going to be
�200! In the end, I had to settle for a chrome one I found
in a sale for �0. I wouldn?t be without it now though.

?THE RECYCLED
ELEMENTS ADD
CHARACTER?
By taking DIY to the next level, Chloe Stickland has
created a unique kitchen in her Hampshire bungalow
Feature KAREN WILSON Photographer FIONA WALKER-ARNOTT
WHAT DID YOU DISLIKE ABOUT YOUR OLD KITCHEN? When we bought our
house, it was pretty derelict. The kitchen was in another room and consisted of a
few old cabinets on one wall. It was far too small, so we knew we?d have to relocate it.
HOW DID YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE SPACE? We wanted an open-plan
kitchen-diner and living room, so we decided to create a new kitchen in the dining
area and knock through to a separate snug room. The work involved removing a
huge ugly brick fireplace and an oak mantelpiece, which we?ve made into shelving
and coat racks for elsewhere. A neighbouring bathroom was chopped in half to
create a larder, with a cupboard for the washer-dryer off the hall on the other side.
WHAT WERE YOUR MUST-HAVE FEATURES? We considered an L-shaped
kitchen, but after living here for a while, we realised a simple design along one wall
would work best. I knew limestone flooring would add character and I wanted a
modern rustic look with industrial and vintage touches. From the start, I envisioned
a shelf running along the entire back wall, rather than a wall of cupboards.
DID YOU HAVE A PROJECT BUDGET IN MIND? In a word: no! We were very
cash-conscious, and using our old bedroom floorboards for the splashbacks and
making the shelf ourselves all helped us to save money. Finding a company online
that made doors to fit Ikea kitchen carcasses also kept costs down.
Simple layout One long run of painted units with a shelf above keeps the
kitchen looking streamlined and blends perfectly with the open-plan dining space

WHAT WAS THE BEST BARGAIN? Incredibly, the concrete worktop only cost
�0: Scott made it himself from a mould after watching YouTube videos, and it?s
roughly sanded and sealed with pond resin. It looks really cool as well as being
hugely practical, as it?s not only heat-resistant but also hardwearing.
DID ANYTHING COST MORE THAN EXPECTED? There?s no gas in the village,
so we spent �,000 on an eco-friendly air source heat pump and underfloor heating.
New bi-fold doors were also quite costly at �000, and opening up the ceiling space
called for thousands of pounds worth of space-age SuperFOIL insulation.

New ceiling After exposing and painting the
rafters, the couple made their own hanging lighting
WHAT WAS THE BIGGEST LESSON YOU LEARNED? We
considered a Belfast sink at first, but Scott persuaded me to go
for a black resin design instead as it would match the induction
hob and keep the colour palette simple. It looks fantastic, but it?s
certainly hard work keeping it that way ? we?re in a hard water
area and the limescale quickly shows up on the black surface.

HOW DO YOU FEEL NOW IT?S ALL FINISHED? I just love
the space and I?m so glad we exposed the roof trusses and fitted
tongue-and-groove panelling. It took an age to paint, but it?s made
such a difference. It was fun dressing the space, too. As my dad is
an antique dealer, I?ve picked up his love of unusual finds, so we?ve
happily mixed up modern art with antiques from France and India.

Makeover brief

shaped family bathroom,
?tting in a feature bath and
incorporating a toilet, which
had been in a separate room
Project costs
Sanitaryware �975
Shower �333 Radiator
�1Tiles �7 Paint �
Total spend �306
Wall-mounted fittings Anna decided to spend a chunk of her
budget on the wall-mounted showerhead and taps, which gives a
luxurious boutique-hotel feel to the space
Monochrome scheme White marble tiles re?ect the light to create
a brilliantly bright space, which make the black ?ttings pop in contrast
WHAT WAS WRONG WITH YOUR ORIGINAL BATHROOM?
Our bathroom always seemed small because there was a cupboard
in the hall outside that jutted into it. Everything felt cramped ? and
we didn?t even have a toilet in there.
DID YOU HAVE ANY BIG IDEAS FOR THE NEW DESIGN?
I?d always had a vision of a black and white bathroom. I just love the
crispness and stylishness it exudes ? I think there?s an air of Art Deco
about it, too. With four children, however, it needed to also be practical,
and in fact, the white tiles especially have proven easy to keep clean.
Dimensions W2.5m x L3m
WHAT WAS THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE YOU FACED?
The main task was to knock through to the adjacent toilet and to
rearrange the sanitaryware, without making what already seemed
like an awkward room feel even smaller. To maximise floor space, we
chose a wall-hung basin and floating toilet, and having the cistern
built into the wall behind the bath also gives us an extra-long shelf.

shell into a brand-new bathroom
WHAT WERE YOUR BIG IDEAS FOR THE NEW DESIGN? It?s
always been a dream of mine to buy and renovate an old building,
and I had been looking for the perfect place for 10 years. When I
finally found the stables they really were just a shell, and needed
everything, from running water to electricity ? and even a roof !
The bathroom was one of my priorities, so it was important that it
was a decent size in order to fit in both a bath and separate shower
cubicle. I was lucky in that the original windows were large and let
in lots of natural light, but that was all I wanted to keep: the rest
was a blank canvas, and I was ready for the challenge of creating a
calming new space in keeping with the rest of the building. I also
had to think about privacy as the bathroom is on the ground floor;
a quote for some shutters came in way over my budget, so instead
I sourced a company online who made up some lovely hinged panels
with patterned fretwork. They?re my favourite part of the room.
FEBRUARY 2019 GOODHOMESMAGAZINE.COM 135
WERE THERE ANY CHALLENGES TO OVERCOME? The builders
had quite a job preparing the room for new plumbing, a new floor level,
a timber roof as well as plastering all the surfaces. Getting water to the
room is what took the longest, before the new roof could then be built!
HOW DID YOU MAKE YOUR BUDGET WORK FOR YOU? I wanted
a rustic feel to work in harmony with the stable setting, but to add some
modern touches, too, which meant I could be quite creative. I had a
friend help make up the basin cabinet with reclaimed scaffold boards,
which worked out to be a real bargain. I then used the leftover wood
to create a matching bath panel and a wall shelf, then used driftwood I
picked up on the beach to make door handles. Choosing large-format
wall and floor tiles also kept costs down as it was less work for the tiler.
ARE YOU HAPPY WITH THE FINISHED RESULT? To think that
this room had no roof or running water just a few months ago is truly
incredible. I?m so pleased with the scheme, and delighted I have such
a relaxing bathroom now, which enhances the whole house.
Separate shower The corner shower cubicle Sue
craved has been positioned at the other end of the room

EXPERT ADVICE
VictoriaPlum.com's Adam Chard
provides expert tips on choosing
the perfect corner shower
Consider the size of your bathroom.
A small quadrant enclosure can be
squeezed into tricky spots, while a
rectangular or offset quadrant will give
you more room to manoeuvre.
Pick your door carefully. Hinged
designs that swing outwards
essentially double the space you
need for the enclosure, but sliding
doors keep everything compact.
Both the glass and frame can be
customised to suit your tastes. The
glass can be plain, frosted or tinted,
while its type and thickness will also
affect durability and safety.
The internal walls of your shower
need protection from splashes and
running water. Tiles work well, or for
something different, acrylic shower
wall panels are quick and easy to it.

THE
PROJECT
DETAILS
Walls of glass connect Nikki and Nigel Forsyth?s new
open-plan kitchen to the landscape surrounding their
home in a quintessentially English Hampshire village
Feature DEBBIE JEFFERY Photographer STUART COX Architect OB ARCHITECTURE
Why did you include so
much glass in the design?
When we first bought the
house, it was overgrown and hidden
from view. Deer and badgers visit the
five-acre site, and it was important to
us that the house should connect with
this fantastic setting. Glass was the
major factor in achieving this, and our
architect ? Olly Bray of OB Architecture
(obarchitecture.co.uk) ? designed the
kitchen to be glazed on three sides,
with sliding doors opening onto a deck
shaded by a timber pergola. We needed
to go to the planning committee to
explain our case, and successfully
fought for the amount of glass involved.
Q
What building work
was involved?
We stayed living in our
previous home during the 12-month
build, as the entire house was gutted
and remodelled. Large aluminiumframed glass doors were installed in
Q
the kitchen, which echo the vertical
grey lines of silver birch trees outside,
and open fully at one corner without
any visible means of support. Lowering
the floor level of the kitchen, with two
steps down from the old part of the
house, created high ceilings and space
for the massive glass walls.
What was your
brief for the kitchen?
We designed a pull-out
larder with a plug for the toaster, which
just slides away out of sight when it?s
not in use, and we have a fantastic
boiling-water tap instead of a kettle.
The TV also drops down into the island
to avoid blocking the view. Designing
a kitchen with predominately glass
walls did limit options when it came
to positioning furniture and cabinets,
but now the space feels like part of the
landscape and we love being able to
relax in the kitchen, enjoying the views
and wildlife outside.

BE PRACTICAL
Open-plan kitchens with
dining and seating areas
are extremely sociable,
but having another quiet
room to escape is the
ideal solution for families,
and a separate utility
room will reduce noise.
Choose soft furnishings
and rugs to deaden
sound in a large room and
install eficient ventilation
to extract cooking smells.
CONSULT THE EXPERTS
Building regulations
approval will normally be
required for any major
internal alterations, such
as removing a loadbearing wall, beam or
chimney breast. When
two or more rooms are
combined, the window
and door positions
need to be considered,
loor levels might not
meet from one room
to the next, while radiators
and electrical switches
and sockets may also
need relocating.
CONSIDER LAYOUT
Remember that every
wall you remove means
fewer places to position
furniture and radiators,
so make sure you sketch
potential layouts before
your start and designin plenty of storage to
reduce clutter.

THE
PROJECT
DETAILS
Tony and Sue Jones extended their Victorian terrace
in London with a modern living room addition and
a loft conversion clad in fibreboard cement
Feature DEBBIE JEFFERY Photographer WILL PRYCE Architect PAUL ARCHER DESIGN
What inspired the changes?
As we?ve lived here for 30
years, we?re attached to the
property and wanted to stay. We only
planned to relocate the old lean-to
bathroom on the lower ground floor,
but this started a chain reaction,
and we made changes to the whole
house. Architects Paul Archer Design
(paularcherdesign.co.uk) came up
with very creative solutions. They
proposed converting the attic into an
en suite master bedroom and replacing
the lean-to bathroom with a new rear
extension. This forms a glazed living
room, stepped down from the kitchen
in the older part of the house.
Q
How smoothly did
the project run?
Conveniently, we rented the
house right next door, and tackled the
Q
joinery and decorating ourselves to
keep costs down. The biggest problem
was that our original builder didn?t
turn up! The company had in fact gone
into liquidation. Thankfully, a local
firm stepped in and did a fantastic job.
In all, the project took eight months.
What are the features
that you love the most?
The new bedroom and the
rear extension are clad externally with
fibre cement boarding, treated with
beeswax. The shape of the living room
extension is emphasised by an external
recessed strip of dramatic LEDs. Glass
was the most important part of the
design, with doors in the loft conversion
and the living room opening up the
house to light and views. As we?d taped
out where walls and furniture would go
early on, the layout works really well.

LENTIL BOLOGNESE
This family mealtime favourite has been adapted for vegetarians,
and tastes so good that nobody will notice it?s meat-free!
Serves 2
? 2 tbsp olive oil
? 1 large onion, inely chopped
? 2 medium carrots, peeled
and chopped into cubes
? Salt and pepper
? 2 garlic cloves, crushed
? 2 sprigs of rosemary
? 200g dried green lentils
? Glass of red wine
? 2 x 400g tins of
chopped tomatoes
? 1 tbsp tomato puree
? 60g walnuts
? 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
? Cooked pasta of your choice
? Grated cheese, to serve
1 Add the oil to a saucepan
over a low heat. Tip in the
chopped onion and carrots,
along with a pinch of salt and
pepper. Cook for six minutes
until mostly softened.
2 Stir in the garlic and rosemary
sprigs. Cook for another minute
until it smells fragrant, then tip
in the lentils.
3 Give everything a good
stir, then pour in the red wine.
When most of the wine has
reduced, chuck in the chopped
tomatoes, then reill one of the
tins with water and add it in.
4 Stir in the tomato puree then
leave to cook for 20 minutes,
until the sauce has thickened
and the lentils are lovely and soft.
5 When the lentils are nearly
cooked, toast the walnuts in a
dry frying pan over a medium
heat until lightly browned and
smelling nutty.
6 Allow to cool and roughly
chop, then add to the pan.
7 Stir in the balsamic vinegar
and season your bolognese
to taste, before removing the
rosemary sprigs.
8 Serve with the cooked pasta
and, if you?re like me, loads of

158 GOODHOMESMAGAZINE.COM FEBRUARY 2019
1 Preheat the oven to 200癈
(fan 180癈, gas mark 6) and bring
a kettle of water to the boil.
2 Put the frozen spinach in a bowl.
Pour boiling water over it and
leave for a couple of minutes.
3 Meanwhile, place the garlic in
a separate bowl, crack the eggs
and stir through the remaining
ingredients apart from the pastry,
butter and sesame seeds.
4 Drain the spinach and squeeze
out as much water as possible,
then add to the bowl with the
other ingredients. Combine with
a wooden spoon, then season.
5 Line a lat baking sheet with
parchment. Unravel the pastry
from its packet, then keep the
sheets under a damp teatowel.
6 Place a sheet of ilo on the
parchment, brush with melted
butter, then sprinkle over a few
sesame seeds. Slap another on
top at a different angle, repeat,
saving a little butter and seeds
for the top. Spoon the illing into
the centre of the pastry star.
7 Flatten into a rough circle with
the back of a spoon, then gather
in the pastry from the edges so
you?re left with an enclosed pie
with an exposed centre.
8 Brush the top with the
remaining butter and sprinkle
over the sesame seeds.
9 Bake for 25?30 minutes until
the pastry is a deep golden
brown. Leave to cool for 5
minutes before serving.

Anna Lawrenson transformed an awkward, impractical
space into a sleek and stylish monochrome haven
Feature MANDI MILLAR Photographer FIONA WALKER ARNOTT

Fact file...
Meet the renovator
Anna Lawrenson, a mum
of four, works in hospitality
Makeover brief
To re-design an awkwardly
shaped family bathroom,
?tting in a feature bath and
incorporating a toilet, which
had been in a separate room
Project costs
Sanitaryware �975
Shower �333 Radiator
�1Tiles �7 Paint �
Total spend �306
Wall-mounted fittings Anna decided to spend a chunk of her
budget on the wall-mounted showerhead and taps, which gives a
luxurious boutique-hotel feel to the space
Monochrome scheme White marble tiles re?ect the light to create
a brilliantly bright space, which make the black ?ttings pop in contrast
WHAT WAS WRONG WITH YOUR ORIGINAL BATHROOM?
Our bathroom always seemed small because there was a cupboard
in the hall outside that jutted into it. Everything felt cramped ? and
we didn?t even have a toilet in there.
DID YOU HAVE ANY BIG IDEAS FOR THE NEW DESIGN?
I?d always had a vision of a black and white bathroom. I just love the
crispness and stylishness it exudes ? I think there?s an air of Art Deco
about it, too. With four children, however, it needed to also be practical,
and in fact, the white tiles especially have proven easy to keep clean.
Dimensions W2.5m x L3m
WHAT WAS THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE YOU FACED?
The main task was to knock through to the adjacent toilet and to
rearrange the sanitaryware, without making what already seemed
like an awkward room feel even smaller. To maximise floor space, we
chose a wall-hung basin and floating toilet, and having the cistern
built into the wall behind the bath also gives us an extra-long shelf.

HOW DID YOU MAKE YOUR BUDGET WORK
FOR YOU? My budget was �500 and I couldn?t
go over that, so I sourced everything myself, trawling
the internet for inspiration. I even started up my own
Instagram account (@surrey_renovation) and got
loads of ideas. I spent money on key pieces that really
make the look sing, like the amazing black taps.
Stylish storage
Colour co-ordinated
baskets provide handy
storage under the vanity
unit below the basin,
meaning Anna doesn?t
have to clutter her wall
space with shelves
ARE YOU HAPPY WITH THE FINISHED RESULT?
I can?t believe the difference it?s made ? I?m so pleased
with how the project has all come together! I love the
freestanding bath ? I never thought I?d have room for
one, but in fact the design is very space-conscious.

WOULD YOU DO ANYTHING DIFFERENTLY?
There is honestly nothing I?d do differently. I was a bit
worried about storage, but I think the fact it?s such a
clean, crisp space has actually made us all a bit tidier!
The kids are less likely to leave a mess now because
it?s so noticeable ? and that?s got to be a win!

WHAT WERE YOUR BIG IDEAS FOR THE NEW DESIGN? It?s
always been a dream of mine to buy and renovate an old building,
and I had been looking for the perfect place for 10 years. When I
finally found the stables they really were just a shell, and needed
everything, from running water to electricity ? and even a roof !
The bathroom was one of my priorities, so it was important that it
was a decent size in order to fit in both a bath and separate shower
cubicle. I was lucky in that the original windows were large and let
in lots of natural light, but that was all I wanted to keep: the rest
was a blank canvas, and I was ready for the challenge of creating a
calming new space in keeping with the rest of the building. I also
had to think about privacy as the bathroom is on the ground floor;
a quote for some shutters came in way over my budget, so instead
I sourced a company online who made up some lovely hinged panels
with patterned fretwork. They?re my favourite part of the room.

WERE THERE ANY CHALLENGES TO OVERCOME? The builders
had quite a job preparing the room for new plumbing, a new floor level,
a timber roof as well as plastering all the surfaces. Getting water to the
room is what took the longest, before the new roof could then be built!
HOW DID YOU MAKE YOUR BUDGET WORK FOR YOU? I wanted
a rustic feel to work in harmony with the stable setting, but to add some
modern touches, too, which meant I could be quite creative. I had a
friend help make up the basin cabinet with reclaimed scaffold boards,
which worked out to be a real bargain. I then used the leftover wood
to create a matching bath panel and a wall shelf, then used driftwood I
picked up on the beach to make door handles. Choosing large-format
wall and floor tiles also kept costs down as it was less work for the tiler.
ARE YOU HAPPY WITH THE FINISHED RESULT? To think that
this room had no roof or running water just a few months ago is truly
incredible. I?m so pleased with the scheme, and delighted I have such
a relaxing bathroom now, which enhances the whole house.
Separate shower The corner shower cubicle Sue
craved has been positioned at the other end of the room
to the bath tub, with a handy heated towel rail nearby
Design details Leftover scaffold boards attached
with brackets from a local craft market make tidy shelves
Light & shade Pretty fretwork shutters offer privacy,
while throwing star-shaped natural light into the space
EXPERT ADVICE
VictoriaPlum.com's Adam Chard
provides expert tips on choosing
the perfect corner shower
Consider the size of your bathroom.
A small quadrant enclosure can be
squeezed into tricky spots, while a
rectangular or offset quadrant will give
you more room to manoeuvre.
Pick your door carefully. Hinged
designs that swing outwards
essentially double the space you
need for the enclosure, but sliding
doors keep everything compact.
Both the glass and frame can be
customised to suit your tastes. The
glass can be plain, frosted or tinted,
while its type and thickness will also
affect durability and safety.
The internal walls of your shower
need protection from splashes and
running water. Tiles work well, or for
something different, acrylic shower
wall panels are quick and easy to it.

THE
PROJECT
DETAILS
Walls of glass connect Nikki and Nigel Forsyth?s new
open-plan kitchen to the landscape surrounding their
home in a quintessentially English Hampshire village
Feature DEBBIE JEFFERY Photographer STUART COX Architect OB ARCHITECTURE
Why did you include so
much glass in the design?
When we first bought the
house, it was overgrown and hidden
from view. Deer and badgers visit the
five-acre site, and it was important to
us that the house should connect with
this fantastic setting. Glass was the
major factor in achieving this, and our
architect ? Olly Bray of OB Architecture
(obarchitecture.co.uk) ? designed the
kitchen to be glazed on three sides,
with sliding doors opening onto a deck
shaded by a timber pergola. We needed
to go to the planning committee to
explain our case, and successfully
fought for the amount of glass involved.
Q
What building work
was involved?
We stayed living in our
previous home during the 12-month
build, as the entire house was gutted
and remodelled. Large aluminiumframed glass doors were installed in
Q
the kitchen, which echo the vertical
grey lines of silver birch trees outside,
and open fully at one corner without
any visible means of support. Lowering
the floor level of the kitchen, with two
steps down from the old part of the
house, created high ceilings and space
for the massive glass walls.
What was your
brief for the kitchen?
We designed a pull-out
larder with a plug for the toaster, which
just slides away out of sight when it?s
not in use, and we have a fantastic
boiling-water tap instead of a kettle.
The TV also drops down into the island
to avoid blocking the view. Designing
a kitchen with predominately glass
walls did limit options when it came
to positioning furniture and cabinets,
but now the space feels like part of the
landscape and we love being able to
relax in the kitchen, enjoying the views
and wildlife outside.

BE PRACTICAL
Open-plan kitchens with
dining and seating areas
are extremely sociable,
but having another quiet
room to escape is the
ideal solution for families,
and a separate utility
room will reduce noise.
Choose soft furnishings
and rugs to deaden
sound in a large room and
install eficient ventilation
to extract cooking smells.
CONSULT THE EXPERTS
Building regulations
approval will normally be
required for any major
internal alterations, such
as removing a loadbearing wall, beam or
chimney breast. When
two or more rooms are
combined, the window
and door positions
need to be considered,
loor levels might not
meet from one room
to the next, while radiators
and electrical switches
and sockets may also
need relocating.
CONSIDER LAYOUT
Remember that every
wall you remove means
fewer places to position
furniture and radiators,
so make sure you sketch
potential layouts before
your start and designin plenty of storage to
reduce clutter.
HOME RENOVATIONS | EXTENSION & LOFT CONVERSION
BLACK OUT
THE
PROJECT
DETAILS
Tony and Sue Jones extended their Victorian terrace
in London with a modern living room addition and
a loft conversion clad in fibreboard cement
Feature DEBBIE JEFFERY Photographer WILL PRYCE Architect PAUL ARCHER DESIGN
What inspired the changes?
As we?ve lived here for 30
years, we?re attached to the
property and wanted to stay. We only
planned to relocate the old lean-to
bathroom on the lower ground floor,
but this started a chain reaction,
and we made changes to the whole
house. Architects Paul Archer Design
(paularcherdesign.co.uk) came up
with very creative solutions. They
proposed converting the attic into an
en suite master bedroom and replacing
the lean-to bathroom with a new rear
extension. This forms a glazed living
room, stepped down from the kitchen
in the older part of the house.
Q
How smoothly did
the project run?
Conveniently, we rented the
house right next door, and tackled the
Q
joinery and decorating ourselves to
keep costs down. The biggest problem
was that our original builder didn?t
turn up! The company had in fact gone
into liquidation. Thankfully, a local
firm stepped in and did a fantastic job.
In all, the project took eight months.
What are the features
that you love the most?
The new bedroom and the
rear extension are clad externally with
fibre cement boarding, treated with
beeswax. The shape of the living room
extension is emphasised by an external
recessed strip of dramatic LEDs. Glass
was the most important part of the
design, with doors in the loft conversion
and the living room opening up the
house to light and views. As we?d taped
out where walls and furniture would go
early on, the layout works really well.
Q

CHOOSE CAREFULLY
External cladding is like
the overcoat to your
house or extension, which
everyone will see. It gives
a building its character as
well as adding insulation
and a layer of protection
against the elements.
Brick, stone and render
are common options, with
timber weatherboarding,
vertical tiling, lint, metal
and modern synthetic
materials also used.
BE IMAGINATIVE
Home buyers will
often consider relatively
unattractive properties if
they know that changing
or renewing the cladding
can dramatically improve
its appearance, although
planning permission
could be needed.
CONSULT AN EXPERT
Building regulations may
apply, depending on the
extent of the work, and
cladding can contribute
to the spread of ire,
so always check with
your builder or architect
that your chosen cladding
is appropriate.
