Houzz TV: Step Inside a Designer’s Upbeat Eclectic Home
Coming from a cottage with low ceilings and a closed-in feel, interior designer Jessica Spencer wanted to make the main living area in her new home one big light and airy space. She knocked down walls and relocated rooms to create an expansive kitchen-diner that has a wall of windows overlooking the garden. She decided against wall cabinets in the kitchen to amplify the open feel and added a black island to ground the space.
In the dining area, Jessica emphasised an exposed brick wall to add warmth and interest, displayed a collection of knick-knacks on industrial shelving, and surrounded the table with mismatched chairs in a range of styles and colours for an eclectic look. In the living room, blue-black walls and a green chesterfield sofa create moody drama, while dark accent walls in the bedrooms thread a cohesive look and feel throughout the home.
Absolutely gorgeous! Colorful, cozy , and yet somehow light. I love the eclectic and collected feel
It’s so beautiful and inviting.
love the Harry Potter Skele-Gro!
What absolute fun! And that framed poster in the living room could sum up a great "design philosophy" ..."I want it; what is it?" spontaneity, whimsey, and the joy of discovery! Ah, yes!
Lovely refurb. Some new kitchens, I feel, are a little bland and clinical but this one has warmth and is very welcoming. I love a brick wall and the flooring is lovely. The whole scheme is interesting and reflects the owner’s personalities. All done after the birth of a baby - some women truly are superwoman!
Interesting one. I love the open feel and the shelves. The way she has disguised the base of the island is indeed a revelation. I was wondering how to blend off-the-shelf units with an expensive wave shaped worktop and this could just fit the bill. Not sure I would have my Dyson on the wall there spoils the view a bit. Great ideas.
Really nice design
