Two things that really struck me about this home is that I didn’t see a single wire anywhere (my absolute dream come true) and the use of storage is pure genius.

If had my way I would lock myself inside this guest bathroom and never leave. All the fittings were sourced through Sandy firstname.lastname@example.org . The tiles are from Quadrata and the mirror set is an antique find.
The pink paint is Plascon “beautiful pink” and towels are from Mungo.
William’s playroom below, the vintage posters from The Palms Centre, the rug is from Hertex and beanbag by Lula.
Les says their biggest renovation tip is making sure you have a guru to lay your moroccan tiles, they had a nightmare with these. Follow me upstairs!
The main bedroom below, see how many pineapples you can count.. Les explains: ‘Our love affair with pineapples is certainly a tad out of control! Ha ha. We just both love them.

The vintage art was sourced from antique and second hand shops in London on Golborne Road.
The charcoal sketch below is from Robyn Denny.
