The extent of the renovation was absolutely enormous and included completely gutting the space, tearing down a wall and putting in new windows.
On the opposite side of the kitchen / dining area, the suspended wood ceiling was removed and new windows and doors were put in.

The cabinet is a fine example of one of Esther's many antique finds. So beautiful!

You can really see just how dilapidated the house was when the family first found it. Simply everything needed revamping.
Upstairs landing after
The original wood floor was sanded down and given a new lease of life with white paint, while a mid-grey emphasises the architraves, turning it into a feature.
The children's bedroom has been kitted out entirely with vintage and antique pieces.

Esther made use of existing plumbing to add a luxurious feel to the bedroom with a bath (I'm just imagining a candlelit bubble bath and a great book before bedtime!). She also made a feature of existing beams and pillars - stripping back the plaster to reveal the original brickwork.
A black and white theme in the bathroom (love the traditional style loo!) is softened with vintage touches included a wall cabinet and hooks.
I love all the historical doors and internal windows - as well as the general simplicity of the space. It really allows the architecture to shine.
I love a before and after - do you? Here are a few others to enjoy this Lillöradag (little Saturday):
Har det bra!
