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.
