Victorian Terrace Renovation

This week we have a renovation in Shepherds Bush – no before pictures, but it’s great to have a peek at some amazing decor ideas….

After 5 years the owners finally completed the refurbishment on their spacious Victorian Terrace in West London, creating a stylish space littered with meaningful touches. The first thing that struck me was the wonderful artwork in the nursery, created using ordinary frames from Ikea and mounting sentimental  keepsakes – Russian wood illustrations inside. Such a striking effect!

I love this Neisha Crosland wallpaper decorating the hallway…

This spacious kitchen is stunning with tall light enhancing modern French windows which work spectacularly with its traditional Victorian facade.

The kitchen is styled with on-trend products like People Will Always Need Plates tableware and  a homemade decoupage dining table papered with old sheet music belonging to a relative who was in the Bach Choir.
