About me I’m Jil­lian Espey, 36, and I work in the fam­ily in­te­rior de­sign busi­ness, Alan Espey In­te­ri­ors.

my home A two-bed­room ter­raced fish­er­man’s cot­tage in County Down, Ireland, dat­ing from the late 1800s, which I pur­chased in June 2013.

When I bought It The house needed com­pletely gut­ting be­fore I could move in. At one stage, I was left with just four ex­te­rior and two in­ter­nal sup­port­ing walls.

And now I’ve al­tered the lay­out so it has a bet­ter flow, and by stick­ing to clas­sic colours I’ve cre­ated a stylish in­te­rior with a Scan­di­na­vian twist that max­imises nat­u­ral light.

Style tip The devil’s in the de­tail – if you get the spec­i­fi­ca­tions and fin­ish right, then the whole project should be an amaz­ing suc­cess.
