About Me I’m Tracey Goldstraw, 35, and I’m a chef. I live with my husband James, a grounds keeper.
My home We love rural country life and have been in our two-bedroom ground-floor barn conversion in Newbury, Berkshire, for three years.
My challenge Having lived here a while, we realised there was a lot of wasted space in our large double garage. We thought this would be the perfect area to turn into a large master suite as the bedrooms were quite small and a little dark.
My wish list We both wanted a luxurious new bedroom that would be clutter-free and relaxing but not too feminine, as it had to work for us both. I was also keen for the design to have a slightly organic feel.
‘I had little money for a chair in here, so I took an old one from the sitting room and dyed the cover using Dylon’
‘There’s room in the wardrobes for all our clothes and linen, plus suitcases up above’
