Having recently taken on a whole rennovation (with kids and yes we are mad!) has been challenging to say the least. Set on the ever so trendy Devonshire road, just off Chiswick high road its seems like abit of a dream right now. The search for a run down property in Chiswick seemed impossible and at last we finally landed a 3 bed Victorian terraced house which was desparately crying out for some love and attention. The project required a lot of structural repairs in order to gain planning permission for the dorma and kitchen extension.
The structural work took place over a few months and the dusty clothes, smell of bonding, sleepless nights and regular takeaways quickly became a daily routine. Whilst the hubby worked hard, my regular reads of Living etc and pinterest tempted me to unleash all my creativity and love for Interiors in one room being the most important…the bathroom. A learning experience to say the least, but I I wanted to create a bathroom that felt inviting, warm and luxurious as well as a room that allows plenty of ‘me’ time which lets face it can be really hard to obtain with our hectic lives and the endless juggling of work, kids, homework, housework and now a whole rennovation! However seeing my eldest daughter overjoyed and stripping off her clothes as she runs into the walk-in shower made this bathroom all the worthwhile. Even the arguments over the positioning of the toilet and endless trips to tile shops tasted sweet right now. The girls, having been so patient and bearing with the ups and down couldn’t have felt more proud boasting to their friends that ‘daddy built our new house’. To achieve this look I opted for classic shades of grey, marble floor and a stone bathroom set complete with sash windows and underfloor heating.
The Bathroom before…yes really!
