Blimey, what a few months it’s been, Mr M and I are finally home in Manchester and exhausted!
Four Half Built Houses the length and breadth of the country, Exeter, Pitlochry, Eastbourne and Birmingham rescued, revitalised, renovated and returned to their owners. It’s been incredibly hard work but very rewarding trying to turn what were effectively building sites into liveable and enjoyable rooms for people totally at the end of their tether with the strain of their huge DIY projects.
Lots of pressure on me to try and capture the personalities and design aspirations of the homeowners in the interior design scheme, given I’d to design the major rooms of the homes – kitchens, bathrooms etc -with minimal input from our contributors during the two week process….. did we manage it?
I can tell you this, there’s been tiredness, tears and a few tantrums – most of which will apparently be shown – eek. Even builders, designers and experts get stressed and upset, you know – we’re human too. Well, nearly.
You’ll have to watch and see as our first, and slightly controversial, episode is broadcast on Channel 5 at 8-9pm on Tuesday 10th July, make a date in your diary!
Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be blogging some taster shots and hints as to some of the amazing products and design companies I had to FIGHT (literally!!) to use so keep popping by for interior inspiration xx 🙂
