Would love to paint the front of our house so it looks like this house down the road ๐Ÿ˜ just need to persuade our co-freeholder that it's a good idea! #edwardianhome #edwardianrenovation #prettyhouse

We're almost at the end of week 2 of the build! This has been quite a challenging week as we've spent 2.5 days with no toilet and we're now unable to use the sink and bath drains, so no showers yuk! I've spent a few days at my mums whilst Luke has been slumming it and keeping an eye on the build. I'm going back to my mums tomorrow as I can't cope without my showers (Luke is going to use the showers at the gym, somewhere I never go!). There was soooooo much mess this week, mainly due to the horrendous rain at the beginning of the week, I've now officially given up trying to keep things clean. To cheer myself up from the mess I have been buying things, with money I don't really have. I've now realised I'm addicted to finding and buying bargains. This week I have bought an Arm chair, Super king bed frame (I only wanted a double but it was too much of a bargain to miss), reclaimed door to match the other doors for new kitchen/living room, reclaimed fire place and finally a complete kitchen on eBay. Ooops ๐Ÿ˜ #edwardianhome #originalfeatures #lovemyrenovation #diy #interiorideas

The original features in this house were the reason we fell in love with it, I still look at them and feel the same ๐Ÿ’• #edwardianhome #coving #originalcharacter #miltontiles @maison_by_emma_jane

We finally have greenery up the staircase.....oh I do love a Sunday at home! Enjoy your evening everyone xx #myhome #homeinteriordetails #edwardianhome #lovethishallway @maison_by_emma_jane

So excited that our builders are starting tomorrow! I cannot wait to get the renovation properly started and see some progress but I'm also feeling slightly nervous ๐Ÿ˜ Here are some pictures of how it looks at the moment - disgusting bodge job extension, the worlds smallest kitchen, bathroom (off the kitchen, gross!) and grotty dining room. All of this will be knocked in to 2 rooms, bathroom off the hall way and open plan kitchen living room. Roll on August when hopefully it will all be finished ๐Ÿ™#edwardianrenovation #edwardianhome #diy #lovemyrenovation #kitchenextension

Not a cloud in the sky! So in my head there is a list of things we can get done outside.....in Damien's head it's all about sitting and chilling in the courtyard.....who will win ๐Ÿ˜‰xxx #frontdoorprogress #frontdoordecor #cornforthwhitepaint #edwardianhome @maison_by_emma_jane

Courtyard is really taking shape, paving done, raised borders built, panelling done and one light up. Just panelling to paint, seats to be built, lighting finishing and ten tonnes of soil and plants to be bought! Then we can look at it because it'll be too cold to sit out!! #courtyard #walledcourtyard #progress #edwardianhome xxx @maison_by_emma_jane

A day late but Happy New year to you all! Today is the day all the decs come down and a cleaning frenzy begins whilst everyone else is still in bed! Poor Damien has man flu....or should that be poor me!! Have a lovely bank holiday xx #cleaning #decsaredown #myhome #edwardianhome @maison_by_emma_jane

It honestly feels like Spring has sprung!! Might try and get motivated in the garden and courtyard today while it lasts xx #edwardianhome #miltontiles #hallwaydecor #cornerofmyhome @maison_by_emma_jane

Happy Saturday ๐Ÿ˜€ #orangedoors #doortrait

Looking to buy some reclaimed fireplaces in the south east London / Kent area. Any ideas? .

Erm...so one of us was paying a clearance team to empty the house whilst one of us was already buying furniture to fill it.
Original haberdashery counter. Isn't she gorgeous? How could I have resisted? Debating now as to whether it should go in the kitchen for utensils and plates or whether it should be the chest of drawers in the master bedroom. ๐Ÿค” .

Stained glass door. One of very few original features we have left ๐Ÿ˜“

Now you see it, now you don't. Now you see it, now you don't.
That gas fire needed to go pronto!! And yes the wallpaper actually started life a brown colour and then faded to green. .

Stained glass front door. Bit of a restoration project. Anyone know an expert?

I have two modes: 'me' mode and 'house' mode. I flit between the two for periods of time throughout the year. When I'm in house mode I have little projects on the go everyday. It could be something like touching up paint, adding architrave, rearranging rooms; anything at all. Today I was giving this chair a new lease of life. Mum had given it to me and although I'm a not a huge fan of painted furniture (I should add, only in my own home here. I do love painted furniture in others people's homes. In mine I'm a brown furniture fanatic) I decided to give it a new look. It was originally a beautiful mahogany chair; my mum had painted it white and upholstered in blue toile, then a pale grey with Ian Mankin Cherry checked fabric. I went for off black with antique gold highlights and a deep red damask velvet flock satin fabric. I adding some bullion fringing but it cheapened it so it came straight off in favour of upholstery tacks. I'm absolutely delighted with how it turned out. So now to find a place for it. I'm thinking bathroom. Tomorrow I think a radiator cover might get adapted to hide a hideous radiator in our bathroom..... #periodhomestyle #periodhome #makedoandmend #edwardian #edwardianhome #edwardianhouse #edwardianstyle #interior #interiorstyle #interiordecor #interiordesign #mystyle #myhomevibe #myhomestyle #damask #offblack

Let's get some stained glass in our lives.
Obvs it needs a little overhaul but look how the light comes in.

So this is the one window in the house that doesn't need replacing. Lovely view of the jungle don't you think? Also I particularly like how a previous owner has dropped the ceiling to house a water tank. ๐Ÿ™ˆI'm no expert but I'd hazard a guess the plaster is blown. Did someone say #moneypit ? Sign me up please.

Sorry I lied, not every period feature has been ripped out. These ones were probably out of reach of the previous owners.
Any tips on cleaning these up? Please feel free to let us know.

I love this group of #colours and #objects together. So simple and a bit of a #moodboard for our new #home as I'm DETERMINED it will be more #neutrals and have an earthy focus, but am always so attracted to bright colours and bold design. #table rescued from the street, #earthenware vase was my grandpa's, #shoe was from an antique shop and the #cider #bottles were #beachcombed by my father. #interiorstyling #interiordesign #curatedstyle #howivintage #plantstyling #plantsofinstagram #bedroom #edwardianhome #londonhome #bohemianhome #homesweethome
