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.
