About Me i’m Lau­rie reay, 33, and i have a busi­ness called ruby sum­mers Coun­try home, paint­ing and restor­ing fur­ni­ture. i live with my hus­band Ben, 35, a para­medic, and our three chil­dren ri­ley, 9, ruby, 7, and Flinn, 4.

My home A three-bed­room Victorian mid-ter­race house in high­bridge, som­er­set, bought in June 2014.

When I bought It the place felt dark and dingy. there were brown carpets ev­ery­where, and gar­ish, mod­ern wall­pa­pers.

And now we’ve painted ev­ery room and changed al­most all the floor­ing. the scheme is mainly white, with dots of pretty pas­tels, so the house is full of light and seems much larger now. there’s a ca­sual, coun­try feel, with lots of up­cy­cled fur­ni­ture and un­usual, one-off pieces.

Style tip Keep an eye out for old fur­ni­ture that’s good qual­ity, and paint it for a fresh look. try to see be­yond how it looks and imag­ine what you can do to give it a brand-new vibe.
