Style at Home (UK) - - Fifties Semi -

ABOUT ME i’m alex reid, 29, i own nurs­ery in­te­ri­ors com­pany Miss­ing cargo (miss­ing­cargo.co.uk). i live with my hus­band Sam, 31, and our one-year-old baby, camilla.

MY HOME a three-bed 1950s semi in ab­bots Lan­g­ley, Hert­ford­shire that we bought in 2016.

WHEN WE BOUGHT IT the house had been rented for years and was in a bit of state, with grubby lino floors and brown floral car­pets. AND NOW the ground floor is a bright, open-plan space. We added a kitchen ex­ten­sion, turn­ing the ex­ist­ing kitchen into a util­ity room.

STYLE TIP Shelves made from in­ex­pen­sive re­claimed wood are great for fill­ing up large wall spa­ces to dis­play any­thing you like.
