My home...

Style at Home (UK) - - Three-bed Terrace -

About Me i’m Pip Ley­land, 33, and i live here with my hus­band, nicky, also 33, and our cat, Juan. i work as a pro­duc­tion man­ager for a pub­lish­ing com­pany and nicky has his own busi­ness as a tile sup­plier for com­mer­cial and do­mes­tic projects, struc­tural­skins.co.uk.

My home We live in a three-bed­room Vic­to­rian ter­race in bris­tol that my par­ents bought in 2001.

When I bought It the house was a real mess! All the orig­i­nal Vic­to­rian pe­riod fea­tures had been ripped out, the ceil­ings were cov­ered in poly­styrene and the gar­den was com­pletely over­grown.

And now We’ve flipped the stairs around and added a cor­ri­dor to make the third bed­room ac­ces­si­ble. We also up­dated the kitchen and we turned the down­stairs bed­room into a liv­ing room.

Style tip things don’t have to be ex­pen­sive to be in­ter­est­ing – don’t be afraid to make some­thing your­self, or to up­cy­cle a piece of fur­ni­ture.
