SHINE SOME LIGHT

House Beautiful (UK) - - PROMOTION HOUSE BEAUTIFUL -

The house was beau­ti­fully pro­por­tioned and rich with hid­den trea­sures such as orig­i­nal tiles un­der car­pets and board­edup fire­places. It needed and de­served a lot of love – but in hind­sight, I was a bit too quick off the mark to sup­ply it. I in­vested in some gor­geous, cost-an-arm-and-a-leg flo­ral wall­pa­per for the din­ing room in lush, dark au­bergine tones, but I hadn’t con­sid­ered the lack of light in the room. We had to sac­ri­fice al­most an en­tire wall of it when we had French doors put in. Now, I would do as Alan Titch­marsh does when he plans a gar­den: see how the light falls at all points of the day, in ev­ery season, be­fore de­cid­ing on decor.
