In June, Nicola Wilkes and Holly Jolliffe came to shoot our house for the November 2011 issue of Ideal Home magazine.
bought our two hundred year old old cottage, located in a small village
overlooking the Blenheim Palace estate, as a quick renovation project
to be sold and then move onto the next property. But, we fell in love
with it, and the village and the wonderful people here. Then I got
pregnant and we discovered the fantastic school... and here we remain!
house is always evolving and we are about to start re-working the
kitchen, bathroom and the exterior of the house - none of these have had
much attention, except for a quick lick of paint since the initial
renovation. Planning a more industrial kitchen (maybe featuring another
of our wallpapers), a chic bathroom with freestanding bath and wall hung
basin and loo. Our bedroom is also about to go 'grey' - in love with
Farrow and Ball's Downpipe grey at the moment! Oh, and our daughter has
outgrown her room and is moving to a larger one! All of this gets me
very excited - absolutely nothing better than designing interiors!
Thanks to Ideal Home, Nicola and Holly.
