Homely Victorian terrace, Bristol

This Victorian terrace was purchased in 2011 and the owners set about plans with us to make it feel like home. It’s now a welcoming place, filled mainly with vintage furniture or newer designs with a British feel. Special belongings and art work well here and people apparently remark on its relaxing vibe.

The original bones are kept, the reception rooms having been opened up by a previous owner who ran a sculpture business from here. We worked through each space, linking them together. Most walls are a version of white with complementing colour schemes. Original features and lots of wood fittings have been brightened up with blue and green furniture and furnishings. Lighting has been carefully used to create inviting pools as well as brighten up more functional areas.

The main bedroom is a calm space with light blue, grey, cream and white. The bed set up was inspired by the slickness of a hotel room. Interest is introduced with some quirky pieces and the space provides a decent place to escape.

I hired TME Interiors to help with the interior design plan for my house. Being an I.T. professional, I have little experience, patience and time to wade through countless design articles and furniture shops.

TME provided me with a fabulous document set, clearly detailing a holistic design ethos I should following along with more detailed furniture recommendations.
