What made you choose a Simple Life Home?

We came across Simple Life Homes on Rightmove and were instantly drawn tot eh Ellesmere. The kitchen was a huge selling point for us, and the fact the house came with integrated appliances and flooring throughout was just a bonus. We have been in our home nearly 2 years now, and still love it as much as we did when we moved in.

What’s your favourite room in the house?

The kitchen! It’s the heart of the home and is perfect for entertaining. It’s so modern and the skylights make such a huge difference.


Best home-hacks to personalise your space?

I love to have family photos around the home, but coloured photos can clash with our theme. Instead, I get all our photos printed in black & white. It looks really effective, and I still have our memories on the wall. I am planning a gallery wall on our stairs, I am really excited to see how it turns out.

How would you describe your interior style? Does this reflect your personality?

My interior style is minimalistic and modern. I have always been a fan of grey, and I like to play around with different tones and textures. My style has definitely changed over the years, but I am confident now with what I do and don’t like. Certainly makes buying furniture easier! I would say it reflects my personality, and it is mirrored in my wardrobe!


Where do you go for interior design inspiration?

Pinterest and Instagram! I have recently set up a home account, and I’m really enjoying finding other homes and using them as inspiration.


Which rooms do you find the hardest to get ‘right’? What are your specific tricks to get around this?

The spare room has been the trickiest for us, as it has just been a dumping ground since we moved in. however, thanks to working from home, this room has now changed into an office. It’s still a work in progress and I can’t wait for it to come together!
