Reworking A Floor Plan

Reworking A Floor Plan

I’ve drawn up floor plans for the last few houses I’ve lived in, just as I would for clients. They’re so handy for space planning. This home is about 1100 square feet (102 square meters). Current Floor Plan As an interior designer, I’m constantly imagining what I could do with the space if I owned the home, and how we could make the floor plan work better for us. There are a few things that I’d love to fix. They stem…

Mood Board | Calm Country Cottage Living Room

Design Inspo | English Cottage Home Tour

Design Inspo | English Cottage Home Tour

My parents just put their lovely little English cottage on the market, and it’s rather gorgeous. It’s an 18th century house very close to Salisbury city center and the cathedral. It’s a four bedroom cottage; about 1400 square feet spread over three floors. I imagine it started as a smaller house – just the front half – and has been extended out the back to add what is now the kitchen and master bedroom. The loft has been converted to…
