The beau­ti­ful wooden floors and win­dows were kept as is. Retha broke out walls to open up the space and let in more light; this is now her liv­ing area.

The new floors with their large ce­ment-look porce­lain tiles edged with wood; Retha bought the tiles for a song at a sale in Worces­ter. She came up with the de­sign while still abroad and dream­ing about the re­vamp.

Retha adores cop­per kitchen ware and has been an avid col­lec­tor for years.
