Style at Home (UK) - - Buy It -

ABOUT ME I’m Sarah Grant, 39, and I live here with my hus­band Karl, 39, and our daugh­ter ava, seven. We run an on­line bou­tique, the­white­wash­hare.wee­bly.com.

OUR HOME We live in a for­mer chapel in north Bed­ford­shire, which was orig­i­nally built in 1807. We moved here in april 2014.

WHEN WE BOUGHT IT the chapel was con­verted in 1994, so we made no struc­tural changes. how­ever, it had lots of dark wood through­out, the front steps were col­laps­ing, win­dows needed re­plac­ing and the gar­den was a mess.

AND NOW We’ve re­painted and trans­formed the house with a style that bal­ances its his­tory and age.

STYLE TIP We write tasks that need to be done and things we want for the house on sticky notes and put them in a book.
