An open-plan kitchen/diner is typical of a Victorian property and offers the perfect entertaining space. The couple have made it their own by implementing their pink and green colour scheme – using Farrow & Ball‘s Pink Ground and Ball Green – but have kept the kitchen cabinetry a cream colour, meaning the colour of the walls can be changed accordingly. Mix and match dining chairs, tasselled lighting and an abundance of plants all make this open space feel fun and unique.

Bold jewel tones add vibrancy and decadence to this living space. However, the relaxed style of the sofas and clever accessorising make it feel ultra cosy too. Pink and green is a cohesive colour combination that is apparent throughout the couple’s home and provides a colourful background for other themes of décor to be built upon.

Fifties Miami was the inspiration behind the couples pink vibrant bedroom. A loft conversion allowed for the perfect space to include a spacious dressing area and en suite. The key elements of the master bedroom has to be the pink patterned colour scheme alongside luxe velvet touches and gold gilded accessories.

Vintage-inspired bathroom

Retro furniture has also made its way into the bathroom as the homeowner transformed an old chest of drawers into a functional vanity unit – which is a great tip for adding personality and your unique style to a bathroom scheme! Wallpaper by Anna Hayman designs is a real talking point and the deep freestanding tub makes it a haven for relaxation.
