Hi all,

We currently live in a half decent 1980’s home which is decorated in modern style. We are buying an older property with a little more character, chimney breasts, bay windows etc!
I’ve always lived in new builds or 1980’s build houses. After some lovely decor and furniture inspiration pls!!

Show us some photos of your homes pls! :-)

Thank you xx

There are lots of lovely accounts on Instagram that will provide buckets of inspiration! Search for tags like 'victorianhome' 'renovation' etc - there's a huge community 😁

I second Period Living magazine. Also Pinterest has been useful in the past, but I'm finding now the images and styles are getting a bit 'samey'.

The other thing to do is to live with the house for a few months if possible before making big changes. Get used to how the light comes in (likely to be darker than your 80s house), learn its quirks etc.
