As an interior designer, one of the questions I get asked alot when I chat with clients is what my own house is like. Well here I thought I would share some insights into my latest interior design related happenings at home!

We have just had a woodburning stove installed. This is not something I have been involved with before on a project, so it was new territory for me. But the idea of bringing extra heat into the house and actually making a feature of the chimneybreast in the lounge were two very exciting prospects!

This is how it looked before:

 

 

 

 

 

 

And here are some work in progress photos below. The opening needed to be widened and brought down to the floor. A template was taken for the slate hearth and then this was installed. The following day the chimney was lined and stove installed. And one positive thing about this chilly weather we have been having is that it has been cold enough to try it out!

Next step…redecorating!
